        How to plan a Coron Trip

        Information and activities to plan your holiday in Coron and Calamian Islands.

        Coron and Calamians Islands are one of the most popular tourist destinations in Palawan, but often travelers ask about when to go and where to stay.

        We hope that this article will help you to plan an enjoyable trip to Coron and Calamian Islands.

        When to go:

        Coron and Calamian Islands can be visited all year round.

         

        High Season

        The most popular period is from November to early May.

        Christmas, New Year and Easter are the most important holidays in the Philippines and is the time that Coron can get a bit crowded.

        If you’re travelling during high season it’s best to have accommodations pre-booked well in advance.

         

        Low Season

        The wet season, that typically corresponds with the low season, runs from June to September.

        Although Coron is rarely in the direct path of the typhoons, you may encounter some short bursts of heavy rainfall and strong wind if your travel between June and October. Bad weather may last for a few days or just for a couple of hours only.

         

        Bad Weather

        Adverse weather can delay or prevent travelers going on island hopping tours or taking a ferry.

        If you’re travelling during the wet season, it might be wise to consider a Travel Insurance in case your trip is interrupted.
