Kalamayan Inn and KokosNuss Resort offer a safari to the Caluit Wildlife Reserve on Caluit Island (northwest corner of Busuanga Island). There you can see African wildlife like Zebras, Giraffes, Antelopes, etc. as well as endangered Philippine wildlife native to Palawan. This is a two day catered package done up in style. You have to be present at 7 AM when the animals are being fed in order to take the tour on the wagon at the back of a tractor. After eating, the animals go off to hide in the brush to avoid the sun. Travel by boat is required to reach the island. Please see Kalamayan Inn's Web Pages at http://www2.mozcom.com/~kalmayan or the KokosNuss webpages at http://www2.mozcom.com/~kkn for a write up about the safari.
To relax you can take your own boat out for a day of island and beach hopping, swimming, sunbathing, even reef and wreck snorkeling (we have three small wrecks, 30 to 40 meters long, that are visible from the surface), or visit Barracuda Lake. The boat driver and his wife will barbecue lunch on the beach. You can finish off the day with a soak in Makanit hot springs about 15 minutes away from Coron.
The energetic can climb to the top of Mt. Malapas behind Coron town and photograph the sunrise or sunset over Busuanga and Uson Islands.
You can take the day boat over to Culion Island and tour the former leper colony and visit the hospital, old church and Spanish Fort.
Makanit Hot Springs is about ten minutes from Coron Town. This is a salt water hot spring with very hot 40 degree celcius water. You can go there by tricycle and walking after a hard day of vacationing or diving. At high tide a boat can drop you off right in front of the springs.
You can rent mountain bicycles and motorcycles and tour the dirt roads around Coron Island. Please have a motorcycle endorsement on your driver's license and make sure your health insurance is paid up.
