I would like to share how to get to Coron with you. Coron is a little bit away from the main island of Palawan. But Coron is also a part of Palawan.
■ Coron Island? Busuanga Island? Coron? What is the correct name of Coron?
There is a town called Coron in Busuanga Island and there is also an Island called Coron near Busuanga Island.
Those same names confuse people sometimes. When people talk about Coron, you need to make sure which Coron they are talking about.
Let’s see each location.
The airport and the ferry terminal are in Coron, Busuanga island.
There is a monument of Coron and it seems like the symbol of Coron Island but this is in Busuanga island. It is a little bit confusing, isn’t it?
You can see this beautiful view in Coron Island.

The ferry terminal.
Actually, people finally could take the ferry on this day since the ferry had not been allowed to leave the terminal because of a typhoon.
Most of the people in this picture came here to get a ferry ticket expecting other people cancel. They were chosen randomly if they can take it or not.
This is the ferry schedule.
The fare is 1,848 pesos. It is about 98 US dollars.（2018.9.18）
You can book the ticket from this site.
PREPARE A MEDICINES JUST IN CASE YOU FEEL SICK EVEN IF YOU DON’T GET SICK USUALLY
The ferry pitched badly. The waves are so tall. I felt as if the ferry was flying and it is not joking.
I don’t usually get sick on the boat but it pitched so badly and it took about 3 hours, I was about to vomit.haha
I just concentrated on trying to sleep. There is a chance it was only the day I took on the ferry but you better to prepare some medicine.
