Coron Village Lodge started as an old 5 room family house. The owners transferred to Manila when the children were in high school, in pursuit of better education for them. The house was left to a housekeeper and a gardener who took care of the house and the premises as though the owners were present. After some years, a few travelers who came to Coron started asking if they could lodge in the house, there being no lodging house in town. Guests started coming in with just the housekeeper attending to them. Finally, it was decided that the house be turned into a real lodge. Additional rooms were built and now Coron Village Lodge has 25 rooms and a 5-door apartment building. A function room, a restaurant and a souvenir shop have been added and, hopefully, more rooms will be added soon. read more.
About Coron, Palawan
Coron is a relatively recent discovery as a beautiful tourist spot. It is located in the northern part of Palawan, being a part of the Calamianes Islands composed of four municipalities—Coron, Busuanga, Culion and Linapacan. Coron is located in Busuanga Island, being one of two municipalities therein and is the center of commerce and trade in the Calamianes.
Coron Island or Calis Island, as the Tagbanuas call it, is a big island across the bay just 20 minutes by motorboat from Coron town. It is an island composed of towering limestone cliffs, coves, lakes, pockets of white beaches — all beautiful aspects one could think of of an island. The rock walls are undercut by waves and been exquisitely carved by wind and sea into sculpted forms and formations. It is a wonder to behold and is a photographer’s delight. read more.
