From PP you can go to El Nido by land. Roro Bus or Daytripper Shuttle Van seem to be the best options. From El Nido you can get to Coron by Banca(8hrs or so). From Coron you can get a direct flight back to Manila. Because of some safety concerns with the Banca IMO I would prefer to go back via land from El Nido to PP then fly on to Manila then fly onto Coron.

Yes Pal Express are starting this trip effective 17th May. They previously cancelled this route. A flight I had booked in January and they canceled on me.

You can go PP to Coron, Banca back to El Nido, and then a land trip back to PP.

8 hours in banca sounds not very comfortable there's no comfortable ferry fast boat?

No there use to be with Montenegro Lines but this service was cancelled until further notice.

Thats why I suggested the flight option.

From Manila, you will need to travel to Batangas and then a ferry to PG.

Manila to Batangas is about 2hr to 3hr bus ride.
