CORON: SAMPLE ITINERARY AND BUDGET

One of the things we liked about Coron is that the beautiful islands surrounding it are just a boat trip away, whether by chartering one or joining a group tour. Because of the ease and convenience of booking an excursion, it is easy to create an itinerary.

We broke down and itemized a sample 4-day 3-night itinerary assuming that:

  • This is for a party of two
  • You will stay at an accommodation that costs P1,000 a night (P500 sharing)
  • P200 per meal (which is not included in the tour package)

Adjust the sample to your flight arrival and departure.

Day 1: Coron Town Tour and Arrival
07:30 am – ETA Busuanga Airport, van to Coron P150 (assuming you booked the earliest possible flight)
08:30 am – Arrival at the town proper, drop bags, rest and check in
11:30 am – Lunch: P200
12:30 pm – Compare tour packages and book a tour throughout your stay
04:30 pm – Go up Mt. Tapyas: FREE
06:30 pm – Go to Maquinit: P350 fare (P175 sharing) + P150 entrance
08:30 pm – Dinner: P200

Day 2: Coron Island Tour
07:00 am to 08:00 am – Start of Island Hopping: P1500
04:30 pm to 05:00 pm – Get back to town
06:00 pm – Fireflies & Night Tour: P950

Day 3: Calauit Tour
06:00 am to 07:00 am – Start of the trip to Calauit: P2500 (sometimes the operator checks with the coast guard first for the go signal for trips to the safari and nearby beaches)
05:00 pm to 06:00 pm – Arrival in town
08:00 pm – Have Dinner: P200

Day 4: Departure
06:00 am – Get up for a morning flight
07:00 am – Breakfast: P100
08:20 am – Depart for the airport: P150
09:20 am – ETA airport, Terminal Fee: P100

Total: P7,875 (without flights)

If the abovementioned sample budget is still too expensive for you, you can replace the Calauit and Fireflies Tours with something else. You can have another round of island hopping to Malcapuya, Banana, and Bulog Dos Islands. This will reduce your cost to about P5,900.

If you book early enough and get a promotional fare, you’ll spend just around P9,000 or even less including flights.


Travel Tips and Reminders

  • If the sample budget is still too high for you, choose a cheaper accommodation. You can get a fan room for about P400/night.
  • Travel with friends or make new ones during your stay on the island. Get a group of 8 or more and chartering a boat for island hopping will be cheaper.
  • Book an accommodation close to Lualhati Park; a ride on a tricycle is around P10.
  • Always remember, leave only footprints and memories, don’t litter and respect the environment.
