3rd day, last day, Sunday.
That morning, we hiked up the 700+ steps to Mt.Tapyas. We inhaled the fresh air and sweat a bit. The clouds overshadowed the town that day, so it was a gloomy. On top of Mt. Tapyas, we viewed the town of Coron, the surrounding islands, though it was only few compared to 1.7k islands of the Calamian Group of Islands. I haven't even explored half of it. hehe.
The place is not touristy, if you come there don't expect summer fads that some other island offers. If you come there, you become a part of the place or you become a spectator on their daily activities. It's gives a feeling of not being in a vacation but rather you're just discovering a new place, a new home, and that new home has its plus points, like having a grand white sand beach some place nearby or just having fresh sea food everyday, just those perks. Establishments there sprawl along and towards the bay itself.
From our trek to the mount we decided to roam around town. The place is busy because it was new year's eve. The market is packed.
That afternoon, after eating our hefty sea food lunch at SeaDive. We went to the hot spring, but just our luck. We travel far enough to be there and found out that it was closed. There was a big question mark on my head that moment. It was totally disappointing. It was a Sunday, family day, and holiday season with lots of tourists and it was close. It was a bad for their tourism. But then again, we cant have it all, we have to let go of the thought that they don't need machines for the spring to function because it was all "natural" and the fact that there were kids swimming in it. So WHY should they close it. Their reason was it was the holiday, they didnt have the hint that holiday calls for more tourist. hmmmp...
That night we went back home, bringing bunch of cashew nuts and dried fish with us.
