  1. Half day tour Pick up from your hotel late afternoon

    You will be collected from your hotel and you will be taken on an eco-adventure in Malbato Mangrove Forest Park.

    Upon arrival at the park proceed for the Mangrove Kayak Activity. Paddle through the eerie channels and inlets, observing the myriad species of birds, crabs and other one-of-a-kind denizens of Coron’s ecoscape.

    Proceed to the floating restaurant for dinner, then take a night trip to the habitats of one of mangrove forest’s most fascinating residents, the fireflies.

    As the boat takes you on this hour-long firefly watching activity, the combination of the majestic evening sky, the unearthly glow of the plankton and the ethereal fireflies will transport you to an endless universe of stars.
