Barracuda Lake is located on the north-shore of the fascinating Coron-Island (only 20 min boat ride from Coron Town) is one of the most unusual, amazing and wired dive-sites of the Philippines. The lake is known for it's unique thermo-clines, which are distinct layers of cold, warm water and hot water. These thermo-clines can be experienced while diving. This is caused by the meeting of the cold f ...

?We breathe without thinking about it. But when you breathe with consciousness, you can control it,? says Guillaume Nery, one of the most popular freedivers in the world.
Guillaume, together with his wife and fellow freediver Julie Gautier and daughter Mai-lou, are currently in the Philippines, traveling to freedive hotspots in Mactan, Cebu; Moalboal, Bohol; and El Nido and Coron in Palawan to support the Department of Tourism?s bid to make the Philippines the Freediving Capital of Asia.

Once is never enough.
Heck, when it comes to Coron, four times still won't cut it. This little tourist town in Palawan one of the first destinations we set foot in as travel bloggers, but even after three more visits, we still can't get enough of it. Its jagged corners are bursting with natural beauty and cultural significance: from the lakes and lagoons of Coron Island, to neighboring beaches, to shipwreck dive sites and coral gardens, to saltwater hot springs, to postcard-worthy views from its mountaintops. Heck, they even have an African Safari nearby.
Yet, every time we return, we al ...
The first time I was in Coron, Palawan was in 2015. I only spent three days exploring Coron Island and was not able to fully enjoy what the place had to offer. Here is my blog entry of my first visit to Coron, Palawan
Coron has also been in the news, because of the announced plan of Nickelodeon to construct an underwater resort there. This plan was opposed by many environmentalists because of the ill effects that it may cause on the ecological balance on the islands. So what better time to go back to Coron, while it still remains pristine.

If you will ask me what is my favorite place in Luzon, my answer is Palawan.
I wanted to share our DIY tour, budget and tips on how you can maximize your travel if you are planning to visit Coron and Culion Palawan.
In below itinerary I placed Culion on the first day mainly because it is quite hard to travel here especially if you are planning to take the public ferry. We also anticipate that if there will be any mishap on the transportation going back in Coron we still have plenty of time to adjust our plans. We stay less than 24hrs in this island and our limited time restrict us to vis ...
Unbelievable 3 day/2 night expedition from El Nido to Coron with Buhay Isla. Days were spent snorkeling and island hopping. Nights were spent eating delicious food and drinking rum with the boat crew and fellow passengers.

Located at the northern side of the Palawan strip, Coron is a forty-five minute to one hour turbo propeller-powered plane ride from Manila. Major domestic airlines such as Cebu Pacific, Air Philippines, and Zest Air regularly fly here. The airport in Busuanga, Coron is a thirty minute ride to the town proper so it's highly recommended to hire a van service prior to going there.
Coron is a small rural town so don't expect to find five-star posh hotels there. After all, it's the marine biodiversity, pristine white sand beaches and beautiful limestone rock formation that makes it a very popul ...
