Go much to budget for coron?

I will be in coron for 4.5 days and would like to know how much cash to bring. I am budgeting 600 per day for food and my hostel costs the same. About how much should I budget for trips/activities? I will spend one day diving for 3500 and would like to spend two days island hopping/snorkeling. I've heard a bangka costs 1500 per day but I'm not sure if this is per pax. After transportation, food and accommodations I think I will have about 19000 left for fun stuff, but I might have cover some stuff for the gf. I think this is plenty any advice? Also my dive master in el Nido said that there is a ATM in coron now, anyone heard about this? Thanks,

Brendan

1500p is for a boat,and not per person.You can have about 8 ppl in that boat/banka.

You can take the boat anywhere you want and lunch will be extra.

Don't know about the ATM.

I am copy-pasting my comment for another post -

Head over to Corongaleri tours - www.corongaleri.com.ph or just tell a tricycle guy to take you to 'expedition', they will take you to their office. I recommend you select from either tour B1 or tour C,these 2 tours cover the top places in Coron.

Malcapuya island in tour C is about 1hr boat ride each way.

Both these tours leave at about 8:30am and come back by 4:00pm

Tour B1 - Kayangan Lake, Twin Peaks Reef, Hidden Lagoons, Bulungan Beach[you have your lunch here], CYC Island, Coral Eden.

Note - this tour does not include barracuda lake, you can add it for 100p or 200p/person and if all the people in your boat agree to it. I think Kayangan lake is more beautiful than barracuda, it's just my opinion.

Tour C - Malcapuya Island,Banana Island & Bulog Is.All these islands a close to each other and you have your lunch on Banana island.

You can find the rates of different tours on their website.
