FLIGHTS: There are several airlines that fly to Manila-Coron-Manila  (Busuanga Airport): ZEST AIR, CEBU PACIFIC and AIR PHILIPPINES. Some of these airlines offer promo fares, just book in advance or check on-line...there are also available flights from Coron to PPC (Puerto Princesa City) twice a week offered by Air Philippines and hopefully the flight from Coron to Boracay resume before the high season starts. 

CHEAP STAY in CORON:  This was a  really spacious GUESTHOUSE. It had 2 rooms complete with 2 shower rooms as well. Each room had 2 queen size beds and the guesthouse also had a kitchen, dining area and sala. (http://jotan23.blogspot.com/2010/08/c...) It was very close to LAMBINGAN BRIDGE (walking distance), where you can ask your boatman to meet you instead of going all the way to the pier near CORON PUBLIC MARKET.

WHERE TO GO: (it would be best to travel in a group to share the cost of the boat)

CALUMBOYAN ISLANDS TOUR (SNORKELLING) : Calumboyan Island - great spot for having lunch, then to the wonderful CORAL GARDENS and finally the LUSONG GUNBOAT. Total entrance fee would be Php 150 aside from the boat rental fee and food. http://jotan23.blogspot.com/2010/07/d...

You can also go to MT. TAPYAS and MAQUINIT HOT SPRINGS. Tricycle ride would cost you Php 300 for roundtrip to hotel.

MALCAPUYA LOOP TOUR:  Malcapuya Island (Php 150) - perfect for swimming and relaxation on its white sand beach, Ditaytayan Sandbar (Php 150) - perfect for those jumpshots and sand writing, BULOG ISLAND (Php 200) - perfect for bumming around. http://jotan23.blogspot.com/2010/07/d...

 CORON ISLAND TOUR: Banol Beach (Php 100) - great spot for lunch. Bring insect repellants., Twin Lagoon (Php 100) - use underwater tunnel if low tide and use the ladder if high tide. Water is warmer underneath and colder on the surface because this is where freshwater and saltwater meet, so expect the water to be hazy. , Kayangan Lake (Php 200) - put on a lot of insect repellants! you will be hiking to the other side of the mountain and mosquitoes are thriving here. Don't forget to stop at the top to take a picture at the most scenic view in Coron.
