Itching to go on a weekend adventure or short break but simply don’t know where to go? If you are looking for a great place that is not too far from Manila then turn your eyes to Antipolo, Rizal. So it is time to pack your bags, and make the most out of your time as you discover what Antipolo, Philippines has to offer!
After a quick visit to Jardin de Marimar, our next stop was to one of Antipolo’s top tourist destinations, the famous Hinulugang Taktak Waterfalls. Located in Brgy. Dela Paz Antipolo City lies the 12-meter-high waterfall of Hinulugang Taktak which gain its fame through the song “Tayo Na Sa Antipolo”. When we finally arrived, we are welcome by the friendly smiles of the staff. Friendly? Hmm, maybe just eager to take money from a foreigner for an overpriced entrance fee. And, to make it worse, they weren’t shy to announce it…
Coron Town might seem like a small sleepy province village to you but you would be surprised how much there is to do… When you first arrive in Coron and settle into your hotel or backpackers, it’s a good idea to explore the town before you start any island-hopping tours or excursions. One thing you learn in the Philippines… No matter where you go, there is always traffic! And Coron Town was no exception… There is no SM, Robinson or mall as such to head for in the town proper but there are food shops around town and a market near Lualhati park and the harbor. This is where we picked up some aqua-shoes and a waterproof carry bag.

To be honest, we were disappointed with CYC Beach Coron. After all the good reviews we had read. Read our full CYC Beach Coron Palawan review and know what to expect before going. The beach sand of CYC Beach Coron is off-white – not as white as other beaches in Coron, but still soft and appealing. For all those divers out there, the waters surrounding the island are crystal clear and full of marine life. For those wondering, CYC Beach stands for “Coron Youth Club” Beach. Another interesting fact about CYC Beach is it’s the only beach where you are not charged an entrance fee (or so we were told, we have not been to every island in Coron to validate this claim). I will admit, CYC beach does have a nice view, decorated by rock formations, mangrove trees, and creamy-white sand making it ideal for stretching out under the sun and getting a tan.
Finding things to do in Puerto Princesa Palawan is easy… deciding where to start is the hard part. PUERTO PRINCESA is a slice of heaven which is not limited only to beautiful waters but extends farther beyond imagination. Choosing what to do and where to go first can become really mind-boggling especially when you’re on a limited time.
Bulog Dos Island is one of our destinations on a recent island hopping tours we took from Coron. The day was bright, the sun was hot and the water was a cool deep turquoise. A great spot to stop and swim or just lay on the beach and let the waves wash over you.
The water around the island is good for swimming as there are no rocks or sea urchins to worry about, unlike other spots in Coron. Our tour guide and boat guys were very helpful, assisting the non-swimmers in our group in and out of the boat. A casual swim took us to the island. The island is quite small so there is not a lot to explore other than the rock lookout and shoreline.
