Here’s to all the travelers who have been posting their throwback photos or dreaming of exploring the waters of Coron for the past year and a half: the top Philippine tourist destination is opening to travelers from all over the Philippines beginning November 15. If you’ve been looking for your next work-from-paradise location or planning a tropical getaway for the holidays, this is your sign to keep your eyes peeled on seat sales.

 

Coron is gradually opening to tourists

Over the past months, we’ve seen popular local travel destinations like Boracay and Baguio reopen to tourists from other regions as a means of reviving the tourism and travel industries. Included in the list of destinations reopening is the municipality of Coron, which will begin accepting domestic tourists in November, as announced by its Public Information Office.

As of September 22, 2021, Coron is currently accepting fully vaccinated tourists who are either a.) residents of Palawan or b.) those entering via chartered or commercial flights through the Point-to-Point Bubble Tourism Program. Only permitted island resorts and licensed and DOT-accredited enterprises are allowed to operate, according to the executive order signed by Coron Mayor Mario Reyes.

The municipality of Coron will then reopen to all tourists from the Philippines beginning November 15, 2021.
