  1. Let me start by saying Coron was the best trip of my life (yet)! I will definitely be back.

    Thanks to DIY Coron for we had the best 4D&3N Itinerary!

    We find ourselves lost upon searching for the best plan for our stay. But soon as I stopped at DIY, I knew it was the one!

    I could write forever about all the positive things that We have experienced for choosing DIY and CORON.. So let me enumerate the things that we loved about the entire trip:

    1. Sir Owen
    He is Very professional. He will organize everything for you, and even take time to answer all your queries.

    2. Kuya Eran (tour guide)
    He was like a walking encyclopedia, He introduced Coron and had many facts about every stop. Can’t ask for a better companion. He really took care of us and made sure we were comfortable and that things were up to our liking.

    3. Mt. Tapyas
    The view from above is unlike any other, you could see every bit of Coron.. Purely beautiful.

    *Bring water, this 700+ steps of hiking is really tiring, but once you reached the top, the sweat is really worth it.

    4. Maquinit Hot Spring
    Could be really hot at first, this is place is perfect to relax and chill after you hiked Mt. Tapyas.

    5. Private Boat
    We were two pax, and we had the boat just to ourselves! (How cool was that?!) Definitely Hassle Free because we didn’t had to wait or consider anyone.

    *If you are looking for a quality trip, then I recommend having the boat just to yourselves just like we did. But if you’re on a tight budget, then choose the Joining tours would be perfect too.

    6. Rough Seas.
    For us this was really fun, Kind of an adventure that we were looking for! We even saw a turtle swimming with our boat, and a baby shark!

    7. Kayangan Lake
    This is truly the heart of Coron Island. The climb could be challenging, but the view from above is definitely worth it!!

    8. Coral Garden
    It is both our first time to snorkel, and we were blown away on how beautiful this place was!

    9. Bulog Dos Island
    This island is very tiny, but IMO, the best among the islands nearby (Banana/Malcapuya) in terms of white-powdery sand and clear waters.

    10. Malcapuya Island Accomodation.
    We had this whole island just to ourselves! This is much much better than crowded boracay.

    *The Whitehouse, were we stayed, was very clean, and had several beds in it. Perfect for couples/your whole family.

    11. New-found best friends (Malcapuya)
    These amazing dogs were the ones who accompanied us during our overnight stay.
    They would follow you everywhere, as if they were your tour-guides.

    *I was personally heartbroken as we left them and this beautiful island.

    12. FOOD.
    Wow. Talk about abundance. We were served the best of quality and quantity in terms of FOOD. Kuya Eran, the Boat Captain and Boatman did a really great job in preparing for all our meals.

    13. Catic Snorkel Mask and Tube w/ Net bag
    We cannot fault this amazing Snorkeling gear, Quality = 10/10!

    14. Culion
    Museum is closed during Weekends. Unfortunately It was a sunday when we visited culion, but We had the chance to personally visit the leprosy survivors which was a rare opportunity. We had to secure a permit from the hospital for a few minutes’ visit.

    It was heart-warming how they welcomed us, knowing they’ve been through a lot.
    I admire how they were treated well in that place, most of them are aged.

    15. Immaculate Concepcion Church (Culion)
    I am personally disappointed that they renovated this church, although It must have been a need for the reconstruction.

    Anyway, I thought it was very beautiful. Serene atmosphere and perfect time to bond with the Lord.

    *Don’t forget to say all your prayers as you visit this Holy place. Make a wish!

  2. Hi sir Owen. I just want to inquirer regarding your all-in coron tour 5d/4n for 2 pax. Just the cheap one lng po sana. Thanks:)

    1. hi eloiza,
      please fill up the form http://www.tfaforms.com/250797 so i could get your details. also you may simulate tour cost there… for 5-day trip… i would suggest the following:
      day 2-3 = coron banana overnight
      day 4 = other tour of your choice (ex. culion town, lusong loop, calumbuyan loop, calauit, etc.)

  3. Hi Sir Owen, Can I ask po if mag-avail kami sa 650 All in Tour niyo, after the tour, can we just put up our tents sa last beach na pupuntahan namin? para at least we can save from hotel/pension house rents?..


    Mae :-) Godbless po!

    1. hi mae, the 650 all-in tour is a day trip. although you may put up your tents, most likely, sa cyc island. if you want to stay overnight in that beach/island you have to rent a boat for your return trip. and that would be around P1600 (depending on how many you are).
