Tao Expedition - Touchdown Coron-30.jpg

TAO PHILIPPINES is an expedition which aims to immerse participants in the authentic Filipino island life. The expedition takes place in the remote islands of Northern Palawan–between El Nido and Coron–for 5 days and 4 nights.

It’s highly recommended to start the Tao expedition in Coron and end it in El Nido, to fully experience the best islands and beaches, not only in Palawan, but also in the world.

Here’s a photo essay of our pre-departure in Coron…

When in Baler, make sure to have a kamayan and boodle fight at Kusina Luntian by Kuya Biboy, a former Manileño who became a Baler local for the love of surfing.

It’s one of the best kept secret places in Baler for yummy and cheap Filipino food and booze. 🙂

BALER: Charlie Does Quaint Surf Shop in Baler @CharlieDoesSurf

Charlie Does-1.jpg

Charlie Does is a quaint surf shop that offers better boards, equipment, and comfort food. It’s run by Alex Angara and her boyfriend, Joseph “Joe” Cole. 
 
Located just behind Costa Pacifica, it’s a nice HOHOL place for the evenings where you can also find artsy stuff. Check it out whenever you’re in Baler.

BALER Costa Pacifica Breakfast-54.jpg

Mornings in Costa Pacifica are the best. There’s the awesome view of the sunrise that unfolds in front of you, whether you’re in your room or in the pool. Then there’s the delicious breakfast of binaliktad na dilis and Baler longganisa with garlic rice and egg, and suman with peanut butter and coco jam for dessert, to look forward to. 🙂

BALER: Dicasalarin Cove Experience @CostaPacificaPH

Dicasalarin Cove Baler-124.jpg

DICASALARIN COVE is a secret beach cove owned by the Angaras in Baler. It’s famous for its white sand, awesome vista, and access to the Baler Lighthouse.

I recommend this as an after-lunch day trip destination whenever you’re in Baler.
