“Maquinit Hot Spring.. Relaxing!”

Maquinit Hot Spring
Ranked #13 of 30 things to do in Coron
Attraction details
Reviewed December 8, 2014

We left Coron town at 4:30pm for the 30 minute very bumpy tricycle ride going to Maquinit Hot Spring, believed to be one of the rarest hot spring in Asia. The water, they say, springs from an inactive volcano. Also, the water is salty because it’s connected to the sea. Temperature is about 40 degrees Celsius. Aside from the hot spring, you can see the Siete Pecados from the board walk, tje.lovely mangroves, the trees, the rock formations..lovely experience.

We went here as part of our 1st day tour after the long hike on Mt.Tapyas. We arrived between 6:00 and 7:00 PM. The travel took approximately 30 minutes from Tapyas. The road was rough but tolerable. On our way to the spring the weather didn't seem so fine. It was about to rain but the driver assured us that it was fine to go. He empasized that It's the perfect time to go since the spring is hot. When we got in the vicinity it wasn't raining yet. We were able to take pictures and swim until the rain finally poured after 20 minutes of soaking and wading. Some were delighted but we weren't. We were worried to get caught in the torrential rain and to travel on a muddy road not to mention tired and hungry.

NOTE: Don't bother bringing food and any colored refreshments. Only water is allowed.

It must be silly to take hot spring in a tropical area. Anyway, we went there because we had nowhere to go before the afternoon flight.
It took 25-30 minutes from the town and we two persons paid 600 peso totally for the ride (forth and back).
The ticket for foreigner is another 300 peso each. I guess it's free for locals.
Temperature is high and the water itself is very clear, not much smell of sulphur.
Actually most time we were sitting at the back on the bridge killing time doing nothing.

We came to Coron last month and it was raining. The path toward the hot spring was reminiscent of a scene from the tv show the Amazing Race. But it was a great experience. The hot spring was soothing as well.

We hired a tricycle to take us to Maquinit hot spring for 300 pesos, round trip. The road got bumpier and crazier the farther we got away from the city center. There were a couple of times that we had to go down and walk because the tricycle got stuck.

The rough ride was worth it, however, as the place looked nice and even romantic. There were a few tables and cottages where we could leave our things while we take a dip. The spring was hot so we couldn't just jump in. We had to step in bit by bit until we could tolerate the heat. The spring was relaxing, especially after our Mt. Tapyas hike.

We arrived at around 7PM. It was already dark so we didn't get to appreciate the view. If I get to come back, it'd probably be better to get here at around 5 pm so we could still walk around the boardwalk and see the ocean view.

The place has a small store which sells chips and drinks so it'd be better to eat or buy food from outside before going here. They have a bathroom but there was no running water during out time there so we were unable to rinse off. We went home feeling icky.
