My First Flight
” Bugzy, pwede na ba kong gumalaw?” (Bugzy, Can I already move?)
That’s the first question I asked my then Boyfriend, now, my husband minutes after the plane took off. Hahaha! That was 2009 and it was my very first plane ride and where all my adventures began.
This trip to Palawan was a gift from my husband for our 1st anniversary when we were still dating as a couple. When he mentioned that he booked an out of town package, Of course, I was ecstatic as it will be my very first plane ride and my very first out of town experience, ever!
I never heard of Coron at that time. It wasn’t as famous then as to how it is now. We had no Idea what’s in store for us when we get there. No research and plans at all. We just booked the complete package without understanding the itinerary. Hahaha!
HELLO TO THE FIRST TIMER AT THE AIRPORT.
And so, the day came and I’m like a kid on the first day of school. Due to my excitement, I didn’t sleep the night before. After 1 hr and 10mins of flight, we arrived at Busuanga airport then took a van going to our hotel in Coron which is about 30mins away.
Upon arriving at the hotel we received complimentary drinks as we fill up the hotel accommodation form and while waiting, we explore the area. The hotel has a large pool and a big mess hall where they serve the meal which is included in the package. Darayonan has 2 different types of room, the Nipa hut style, and the common room type both with aircon and fans.
Part of the package was full board meal and a gigantic boat just the two of us with the tour guide, plus lunch at the beach. The interesting part was it was also my first time to eat seaweed, and I love it! Hahaha!
SOME OF OUR FOOD AT THE HOTEL AND AT THE BEACH
The tour package includes:
- Siete Pecados
- Kayangan Lake
- Twin Lagoon
- Barracuda lake
- Banul Beach
- Sunken shipwreck
- Maquinit hot spring and Mangroves
THE FAMOUS SPOT ALONG THE TRAIL GOING TO KAYANGAN LAKE
THE PLACE WHERE WE HAD OUR LUNCH
MANGROVES, CAVES AND BEACH
One of the best snorkeling experience we ever had compared to other beaches we had been! (soon on my next blog)
SIETE PECADOS, BANUL BEACH, OUR OWN BOAT AND TWIN LAGOONS
THE MANDATORY SAND LETTERING
The package was originally 4 days and 3 nights for 20k PHP, but then because of bad weather, our flight got canceled and we are forced to stay 1 more night that caused us additional 1500 PHP for the food, accommodation and airport transfer.
Because of this experience, my passion for Traveling was ignited and we learned a lot as a traveler and most of all, this is definitely one of my unforgettable experience not just because everything was a first for me but because CORON IS SUCH A MAJESTIC DESTINATION! You will surely say, ” Ang Ganda ng Pilipinas!”
We will definitely come back CORON!
