Bird's Eye View of Coron, Palawan

When I looked down  _ I knew right away that I was in for bundles of nature treats. Landscapes were uniquely interesting  like art works.

Assemblages of islands were icing the ocean. The bird's eye view was so fascinating, I was surprised to realize that it was raining when we touched down Busuanga airport.

PAL provided umbrellas for everyone.

There were teasers of what the dive sites here in Coron could offer. They said, this province was rarely or  never visited by strong typhoons. Even rains were only short affairs.

True enough when we went out of the airport the rain stopped.The weather cooperated well throughout the duration of our stay

Already, the (30 mins) trip to Coron Town from Busuanga airport was loaded with scenery. Green meadows of grasses exported from Australia ( courtesy of the past Marcos regime) gave off a feeling of being out of P.I. The long roads were only accommodating  hotel transfer vans and pedestrian cows.  

We reached our hotel ( Coron Gateway), the newest and most expensive in town. This would be our first accommodation as we planned to hotel hop every night of our four days stay. We were not rushing so we didn't plunge- in to island tours right away. We settled and feasted on our first sight of the Calamianes Group of Islands from our windows and terrace.
