It was definitely worth it to climb the 700+ stairs to the top of Mt. Tapyas. Go on a more clear day so you can see a beautiful sunset.

I didn't appreciate much the town tour in Coron. Spending P650 for the town tour was too expensive (imo). To get to the peak of the mountain, you'll have to take around 1000 steps. Better to do this if you're into fitness. Perfect for your...More

Great view from the top! Excellent climb in my opinion. Only draw back, some dog poo close to the bottom (start). There are best points where you can sit to get a breather (not necessary if your in decent shape). I always go up at...More

No need to wear super hiking clothes for these as you will only be climbing 720+ steps. It's a good view, and there are benches that you can sit on on the way up and on top. The climb will probably take you less than...More

Awesome view of Coron once you reach the top. A must see to say you've done it. 721 steps to the top. Not far from Coron town. It will definitely be leg day. Worth doing.

depends on what you a looking for! Kabu beach is nice, and the waterfalls (but its 40km from the city) the ultimate tour is worth the money
