We travelled to Coron via 2Go. We didn't have much time to tour because of the delays in our ship. Our first trip was island hopping (Siete Pecados Marine Park, Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, Skeleton Wreck, Smith Beach)and then we had a quick city tour (Lualhati Park, St. Augustine Parish Church, Maquinit Hot Springs)
