We (a couple) are arriving on 16th on Busuanga airport and going back to Manila on 26th December this year.
I booked 4N/5D (22nd Dec - 26th Dec) to stay on Mangenguey Island - it was done in a hurry and realised that it's not refundable! I am worried that staying on this island for 5 days may be too boring especially during Christmas. We like diving, snorkelling, fishing, etc. but other than snorkelling/kayaking, it seems they charge a fortune for anything.
Supposing that we stay on this island as planned, we are not sure of what would be the best plan for the remaining 7 days.
We definitely want to do: about 6 dives (not very interested in wreck diving though - more interested in big fish....), sea fishing, a bit of town experience (e.g. street markets, local restaurants, bars).
We plan to stay in one of the resorts or somewhere in town in Coron for 3N/4D, go to El Nido by ferry to stay for 2 nights for more diving, and then come back to Coron by ferry to go to Mangenguey.
Q1. We want a relaxing holiday but with plenty of water activities (diving, fishing, snorkelling etc.). Is the above plan ok for this purpose?
Q2. Any good mid-range accommodation for divers in Coron (for big fish etc. rather than wrecks)?
Any opinion would be highly appreciated!!
