We did island hopping and snorkeling. It was like we were inside a very large aquarium full of colorful fishes and undisturbed corals. I swam with "Nemo" and his friends.

We spent our lunch in one of the beaches. The food was prepared by the boatmen while we are on travel and I could say Coron's seafoods are the best. Credits to its freshness and the love for cooking of the boatmen.

I also admire the lakes inside their islands. It was well-protected and has maintained its natural beauty.

A side trip was also made to a privately-owned hot spring.

But the most memorable for me was our 724-step climb to Mt. Tapias. Tourists and locals make it a point to visit the summit as it is the most prominent landmark of Coron. The summit offers a very tall white cross for picture taking and a wonderful view of the town proper and nearby islands.

It was indeed a wonderful experience and I will definitely visit this place once more, given the resources.
