“Nice place”

Maquinit Hot Spring
Ranked #11 of 49 things to do in Coron
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 14 May 2014

Located not so far from the center, one can take a tricycle. You can ask the driver to wait for you for a reasonable price (forgot how much we paid).

The water is really hot, may not be hot for Japanese though. The place looks nice and clean. The panorama of the spring pool surrounded by mangrove trees with an opening to the ocean looks amazing. One can just sit and relax on the benches under the mangrove trees.

Going to the place is ideal on cool days as you may not enjoy going there on a hot summer day. Perhaps late in the afternoon is ideal. I can imagine a cloudy, breezy and cool day to be a perfect day for this,

We visited this hot spring with 2 kids. Hot spring entrance fee was P150 but a bit disappointed for they dont have a shower area where you can rinse off the green algae from the natural hot spring that has been attached to your clothes. Only comfort room with a big drum with clean water to pour on yourself for rinsing.
Hot spring water tend to be hot upon first submerge in the water but the body will get used to the heat. Sides of the wall of the natural spring tends to be slippery because of the green algae.

There are tables provided around the area for waiting.
Overall, this place will be cool only if you wish to experience a natural hot spring but definitely NOT recommended for those who are comfortable taking a shower aftr submerging in the hot spring and do not expect to have a place to change clothes as well..

Came here after Mt. Tapyas, and it was bit crowded at around 5pm. Water was good for soothing and relaxing aching muscles after climbing up the hill (Mt. Tapyas). Beside the pool is a mini mangrove forest. The water is too hot at first but you get accustomed to it afterwards. Be careful not to be submerged for more than 30 minutes though as you might get dehydrated. We didn't stay long as it was bit crowded.

Everything as expected. Probably the nearest popular attraction in Coron town proper. But try not to stop here right before your flight, or worst, voyage to the sea. They don't have fresh water shower! NO FRESH WATER SHOWER! My balls felt like 'salted eggs' after a 16 hr ship ride when we docked in Manila. All good though! =D

Php 150 entrance fee
be careful, it is a natural spring so molds accumulate on the jagged rocks on the side.
there is a nice table, sea-side where you can have a drink.

My partner and I visited the Hot Spring as part of a Town tour organised by our accommodation (Coron Ecolodge). We opted for the tricycle ride to get the full experience and we had an absolutely amazing time. We visited the hot spring after climbing Mt Tapyas in the late afternoon, which was a great idea as we powered up and down that Mountain/Hill, giving our legs quite a workout.

Taking the tricycle also meant that by the time we got to the hot spring, our legs pretty much felt like jelly...Making the hot spring experience a million times better! We must have got there around 7pm, and there weren't too many people, so it was nice and relaxing.

After staying for an hour we made the tricycle trip back in the dark, with only the tricycle headlight to light the 4WD worthy track... It was pretty awesome!
