Best Time to Go
March to April are the sunniest time of the year where you can experience Coron’s crystal-clear waters in all its full glory.
There are several local airlines that have daily flights to Coron. Francisco B. Reyes Airport, formerly Busuanga Airport, is about an hour away from Manila. From the airport, travelers will be doing land travel in order to get to the island.
Flight – A one-way ticket to Coron on an average is around PHP 2,000 during off season and around PHP4,000 for peak season.
Accommodation – For budget travelers, they can get accommodation under PHP 1,000 but are still quality one. If you’re willing to shell out more for a luxury hotel, a four-star property is around PHP 13,000.
Food – Restaurant meals can be pricey as most of the food in Coron are sourced from other locations. An average meal for a solo person cost around PHP 200 and can up to PHP 400 if you’re buying a shake for your drink.
-Wear comfortable footwear like aqua shoes that will properly protect your feet from sea urchins, jellyfish, etc.
-There are entrance fees to several islands in Coron.
I choose to fly SkyJet because they have the fastest flights to Siargao. Another important thing to me when I fly is my comfort. SkyJet’s aircraft has very big legroom. I can seat back, relax at their plane’s very comfy seats.
It’s my second time to fly to Siargao with SkyJet and I like that it’s super convenient. Their flights to Siargao are direct flight [from Manila]. I can relax while flying because of its spacious legroom—handy since I always sleep during flights—and the temperature onbaord’s cool. I plan to go to Coron and Boracay, especially Coron, which I haven’t fully explored, and in those trips I’d still take SkyJet.
It was my first time to fly SkyJet and it was a very very good experience. I was completely blown away. [The flight] was very comfortable; the staff were very accommodating. I hope SkyJet gets to have more flights. I did not have even a second of regret I flew SkyJet. In my next plans—if I go to Boracay or Surigao—it’s a given that SkyJet’s my top-of-mind airline.
