About Busuanga, Palawan :
Busuanga Island is blessed with spectacular limestone rock formations thrusting out of the sea to create numerous tiny islands with dramatic seaside cliffs (although to a lesser extend than in El Nido).

Busuanga island lies north of El Nido and cannot be reached overland.

Coron is the main town on Busuanga Island and location of the ferry to both El Nido and Manila. It is a quiet fishing town, supported increasingly by tourism. You can dive the World War II shipwrecks, soak up the amazing scenery of the nearby islands, beaches, lagoons, lakes and lime stone rock formations. Travel by local outrigger boat (“banca”) is highly recommended.

Overnight stay is in a superior room in the Corto del Mar hotel, from where you will be met for your Island Hopping Tour and Hot Spring experience.

After that proceed to El Rio Y Mar resort for two nights. Located in a tranquil bay with a strip of light sand, El Rio Y Mar in Coron, Busuanga Island, Palawan offers serene view over the tropical water of the bay and surrounding hills from your beachfront native cabana.
Here you can just relax or join one of the optional tours, like e.g. snorkeling just in front of the resort or “Dugong” watching.
