Life is the sum of experiences that we encounter as go through life. Day to day to struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world's creatures. As human beings, when we encounter a challenge, we have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down another road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. Every decision the we make has significance. The tiniest choice that is made reverberates throughout the entire universe.

Coron, Palawan - 3D2N Family Itinerary

Three months prior to the agreed family vacation, I booked at the Cebu Pacific Air.  Don't get me wrong ha, but this vacation is all FIRST - time experienced to me. From booking of the flight schedule, flying on a plane and dealing with a boatman for our island tour were all FIRST to me. So it was all mixed emotions but mostly I was soooo excited! You cannot imagine how fulfilling it was for me to organize such vacation.

Here's our ticket:
Yeah, it was kinda higher than others but what else can you ask for, you'll be enjoying the best vacation you ever have with your FAMILY, whatever and how much you'd spend for, it is PRICELESS!

We had a debate on where the family should stay and what itinerary we will get. Since we had a budgetary vacation, Ate Diane made a cost comparison of cheapest lodge/hotel and boat rental for the island hopping. We chose to have DIY (do-it yourself) itinerary na usong -uso sa Coron. In fact, karamihan ng makukuha mong itinerary ay DIY. Though we had a table comparison already, I was not contented so I did search for myself.

I started calling different lodging -in which offers cheapest but pleasant accommodations and after a few weeks of looking, I decided to book at the Coron Village Lodge. What attracts me most para kunin ang Village Lodge ay ang free-wifi access, overflowing coffee/ tea and not to mention, all the reviews I've got in the net that they have the cleanest room maintained for their guest.

And for the island hopping, I chose to trust Kuya Jhong which from what I read from other blogs, he is nice and very mabait daw! Plus points, he has pictures talaga with his guests and he is always very accommodating pag tini- text at tinatawagan ko. I was so satisfied and happy that we were able to do what we want.  Sa iba kase you cannot customized the tour, eh I wanted to have 1.5 island hopping so availing Kuya Jhong's tour, we were able to do it the way we planned it.

Just to give you an idea, please do check this itinerary so you can plan your own + expenses:

  4. I really think I'll find this useful. I'm going to Coron over the weekend 10/07/2012-10/09/2012. Any traveller tips you can share?

  5. Francesca: My kisses also all the way to Italy! Thanks for dropping by.
    Symmetry: I miss the simple life Coron may offer esp their beaches and beyond. Just make sure you always bring your umbrella, becoz it always raining in that part of Palawan. Bring extra clothes and money just in case you need to stay another night at the island due to flight delay and take alot of pictures, bring back the memories to Manila and ENJOY! Thanks for this one, I even missed more Coron!

  6. I happen to pass by the blog while searching for any info that would help me plan our Coron trip...I must say, that this gave me a perfect idea on how approximately would we be spending. I just hope all the quoted prices still applies at present.

    We're set for Coron on the 23rd..would surely consider the entries here. Thanks Mitch :)
