A Funny Lion Coron Adventure! (Is your Coron experience like this?)

Funny Lion

Coron, Palawan is no stranger to every Filipino’s bucket list. Many Pinoys have never even been to Palawan, but they’ll definitely agree that Coron is one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines.

Having been blessed with precious beaches, limestone cliffs, freshwater lakes, and spectacular diving spots filled with WWII sunken warships, Coron offers unparalleled experiences and picturesque scenery! It’s no wonder Travel+Leisure declared Coron part of the world’s best islands.

There are only a few luxury resorts in Coron. One I highly recommend is The Funny Lion, a safari-themed eco-boutique resort, conveniently located in the heart of Coron Town, 30 minutes away from Busuanga Airport.

Here’s a complete guide to our roaring adventure in Coron, Palawan…
