Nikki and I were in a play-by-ear mode on this trip. We never booked any activity beforehand 'coz we just wanted to relax and do nothing on the beach. But then...

When we arrived at Club Paradise Resort, they showed us some of the possible tours that they offer. Amongst all of those, we trimmed everything down to Scuba diving, Calauit safari tour and the Coron Island tour. And Nikki chose the Coron Island tour because there were 8 persons who signed up already for the next day and you know the drill - more persons = cheaper rates. So we booked it and our call time was 7 a.m. It was 3,000 pesos a piece which included everything from the land/boat transfers, entrance fees, tour guide and the food.

FIRST STOP was the Barracuda Lake. We just spent a few minutes there and didn't dip in. There were some divers at that time. The water was clear even if the sun's not out that day - nobody complained about the weather, everybody was seizing the moment and enjoying the tour.

At first, I was so frustrated because I can't get a perfect underwater shot. So what I did was, I went on with snorkeling and forgot about getting some underwater shots. It was awesome! The corals were great and the different underwater creatures seemed like playing with us. I especially loved the pawikans and the striking blue fish (still don't know what it was called).

And then when I tried it, I screamed so loud that everyone looked at me in a weird way. I've been to different hot springs and boy this one was really hot. I took a couple of deep breaths and then I jumped in. It took sometime for me to acclimatized and when I did I felt relaxed. It was a very spa-like experience. Much better than a jacuzzi. Nikki felt like her body defrosted from the coldness last winter.
|really warm, ay hot pala|
