We again booked with Nice in Paradise Tours for “Coron NxtCapade.”  Itinerary for this tour package is Bulog Dos Island, Banana Island and Malcapuya Island, priced at 1,200php per person.  The price is a bit higher than Tour A since the islands in the tour package is about 45 minutes farther than the previous package. Price inclusive of hotel to boat transfers, entrance fees, life vest, tour guide, lunch and snacks. Minimum of 5 people.

Banana Island is our next stop where we had our lunch! The chili crabs made everyone’s tummy really happy. Ok, except for Marco who doesn’t share the same enthusiasm in eating crustaceans. hehe. But he did enjoy the grilled chicken served with the lunch spread. ^_^ Snorkeling and fish feeding came a few minutes after the bountiful lunch.

TIP: Bring extra water, extra soda/ juice drinks, chips and snacks. Have your drink items to be stored in the cooler. Also bring your snorkeling gears to better enjoy the underwater life. Also when booking with Nice in Paradise Tours, we recommend you to ask for Moimoi as your tour guide.

FOURTH DAY

With our flight back to Cebu scheduled at 1:05PM, we dedicated the last day in buying stuff to bring home. We bought most of our pasalubong items at Coron Souvenir & Gift Shop and had customized our souvenir bracelets at Pearl Y Shell.  Thought of buying some wood carved items but it was a bit pricey here. I remember buying the same items in Puerto Princesa at half the price. Even the Casoy is priced higher at 250php for 380grams.
