"Climb up the mountain!"
If you're up for a little adventure, then brace yourself for a 700-step climb up Mt. Tapyas. It's best to go up these steps in the afternoon, so that you will be able to witness Coron's lovely sunset. You'll also be able to appreciate a 360° view of the entire island from this location.
Aside from those previously mentioned, you'll also be able to witness the Coron Cross, as soon as you reach the summit. The cross itself is brought to life with lights during the night.
Also, if you're worried about not bringing any drinks to your climb, there will be several vendors along the way, selling cold water and Gatorade thirst-quenchers.
To help ease your tired muscles after an exhausting climb, a relaxing dip by Maquinit Hotsprings is something that you should definitely experience. You’ll be able to encounter a short, bumpy ride along the way. But as soon as you see the hotsprings, you will surely forget how rocky the travel was. You will surely feel ignited with excitement.
Maquinit Hotsprings has an entrance fee (Php150 as of January 2012). But aside from that, the famous site also offers two pools -- both of which are composed of hot and saltwater. Moreover, you’ll be able to witness an interesting sight of rock formations within the pools. So be careful when stepping into the pool. Not only is the water hot, you may also slip or cut yourself from the jagged edges of the rock.
Furthermore, you can relax in Maquinit while staying soaked in the hot water. You can take photos, while viewing the vast ocean from the pool. Of course, there will always be a vast number of tourists enjoying the hotsprings. But rest assured that you will still have that peace and quiet while there.
