It bears mentioning the boat terminal in Coron as the wi-fi signal was better than in our lodge and the facilities were orderly, owing to the recent resumption of big ferry trips from Manila via Puerto Princesa. The terminal's walls were plastered with 2Go posters advertising the promo fare of P1,200 which was impossible to miss and difficult to ignore -- something to keep in mind for a return trip hopefully in the very near future.
Hmmm, why go to Culion and not stay longer in Coron? While I still like Coron, I personally wanted to venture somewhere new. The last time I visited, we had a side trip to the wildlife reserve of Calauit farther north and enjoyed it. This occasion is no different. I was also eager to venture somewhere quieter, less touristy as I've always been a fan of small towns. Besides, it's always fascinating to go somewhere I've only read previously in books.
