when i was on days off, i went to coron palawan by myself. none of my friends were available to join me for all were busy with work. so i thought, it really doesn’t matter if i go alone, i have visited other places before as a lone traveller anyway.
i have been fascinated by palawan from the first time i was there nearly a year ago. i visited puerto princesa then, and when i left the place i told myself that i will be back. coron is just one of the islands in palawan that exudes the beauty of nature. it offers a lot of tourist attractions, but my purpose on being at coron was simple: i want to laze and unwind.
i chose to stay at el rio y mar, a beachfront resort in san jose.
i was welcomed by the uber-friendly staff of el rio. most of them had asked me the same question while i was staying at the resort which was – why was i alone? imagine being in a place made perfect for lovers and honeymooners then here i am going solo? i really cannot blame them of their curiosity! lol!
i stayed in one of their native beachfront cabanas.
since there were only a few of us guests (a group of three couples from the states, and a german with his filipina wife and their kid) in the resort, meals were served ala carte, a choice of meat, poultry and seafood as a main dish was available and being a pescetarian, i chose the seafood that they served. the dining area i think can occupy about fifty guests or more.
i also took a dip on their infinity pool that offers a great view of maricaban bay, even at dusk.
a view of the sunset from the veranda left me a moment of thanking god for the blessings he has given me, for my parents and my siblings that i cherish, for my few good friends who has been with me through the years and for keeping me and my co-workers safe at work.
