|Money Matters in Coron|
Change money to Pesos, preferably at the Edzen Money Changer, in Manila before you come to Coron. Money changing is available in the Swagman Travel office and at a Pawnshop in Coron but the exchange rate in Coron is usually more than 10% less than the exchange rate in Manila.
There is no "on-line banking facility" in Coron so there are no ATM machines. You can't draw money off of your credit card without going through Swagman Travel which will charge you 10% if they even have any pesos available to advance.
Diving and diver training courses are priced in dollars. All charges can be paid for with Pesos, US dollars or US$ denominated traveler's checks.
You can also pay with Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit card at the Swagman Travel Office or the Kalamayan Inn.
