Sizzle in Maquinit Hot Spring (Coron, Palawan): Photo of the Day

She hasn’t been everywhere,  Edith Vitug says, but she’s planning on it.  We know that’s a tall order, with day jobs and time needed to visit more than 7,100 lovely islands of the Philippines, but, hey, hope springs eternal. And talking of springs, in the awesome island of Coron (Palawan), you’ll find the ONLY known saltwater hot spring in the Philippines and in Asia, among the few in the whole world. We’ve tried it and it’s not really sizzling hot, just enough to sooth your body and spirit after soaking the wonders of Coron during the day, but you can coyly sizzle in it, even at night, as shown in this photo by Edith Vitug  (visit her instagram site, @dithvitug, for other beautiful photos).

But we have lots of friends who go diving and we’ve seen countless photos/videos showing the sheer beauty of underwater life. Take, for instance, this photo by Anna Arancon-Milan (annaamilan) — a digital marketer, ocean lover and smile advocate — of a freediver (your husband, Anna?) at the Barracuda Lake in Coron, Palawan. Gorgeous view, don’t you agree? Click to enlarge the photo: Continue reading Photo of the Day: The Underwater Wall

Twin Lagoon of Coron, Palawan

Memories have a funny way of affecting the present, we all know, which is why we’ve waited for the rainy season to write about our summer trip to Palawan. Any dour rainy season spirit would be uplifted by memories of the flickering rays of sunlight that playfully glide across the emerald green waters of the Twin Lagoon in Coron, Palawan. We could have written this post last summer, right after we’ve visited the beautiful Palawan, primarily Coron, but chose to wait for the last quarter of the year, the tail end of the rainy season.

Calauit Safari Park (Busuanga, Palawan)

We’re here in Calauit Island…looking for the most dangerous animal…the giraffe!” You have to read that line, or, better still, say it out loud, in your best imitation of the Australian “Crocodile Hunter”, Steve Irwin, in the same manner that our nephew blurted those words, from out of the blue and fresh from deep slumber, as soon as he stepped on Calauit Safari Park.
