If you want to see more of a place like Coron, Palawan, go beyond where others usually don’t go. This Coron mountain bike tour will allow you to see the different sides of the island of Busuanga not just the usual tourist destinations. The participants are supported by a 4×4 vehicle from the beginning to the end of the biking leg.
What’s the riding like? You will be biking on single tracks and dirt roads with beautiful scenery of mountains and valleys, rice and corn fields. The ride starts in Decalachao Village where the terrain is rolling followed by single tracks in rice paddies and in between valleys. The route is not a walk in the park because there are challenging climbs that you have to conquer. After this, you will surely enjoy the long and winding dirt road to Borac village proper where scrumptious lunch is served. The ride ends at the Maquinit Hot Spring Resort where you can take a dip and relax your tired body. Dinner is served here, boodle fight style.
Spend the rest of your second day swimming and snorkeling the beautiful sea of Coron and watch the the colorful marine species.
