I used to live and teach freediving in Coron. This is an incomplete list of establishments and businesses I can recommend there:

Coron Backpacker Guesthouse

We stayed at the Coron Backpacker Guesthouse for a month when we first arrived in Coron. The people working there are nice and helpful, they have clean rooms and it's one of the most affordable places in town (P500 for a double room). They provide free internet, fresh water and coffee.

They have a kitchen open for guests and a nice hang out area where you can meet other people. It's a very nice place for budget travellers.


My favorite place to eat in Coron. It's along the highway towards the airport, past the backpacker guesthouse just by the entrance to Krystal Lodge. They have western, local and vegetarian food.
