Ive heard so much about the beauty of Coron around 10 years ago when my colleagues were going there for vacation and team buildings posting incredible pictures of a place they call paradise.

This is our first full day in Coron and we just wanted to spend a day off the sea. So we decided to go up Coron mountain and see the not so famous sign. We then spent the evening at Maquinit hot springs, 1 of only a few natural saltwater springs in the world. We were left feeling invigorated and relaxed.
