Puerto Del Sol Resort & Abandoned Sea Plane
We drove about an hour to find this place. We’d heard about it from @ourtasteforlife and knew we had to see it for ourselves. From the road you can see the sea plane in the bay. Drive around the corner and you will find Purto Del Sol resort. Here you can rent their kayak for 200PHP per hour and row the the sea plane. It took us about 5-10 minutes to get there. We tied up our kayak to the open door and climbed in to explore and take some pictures. It’s a really awesome thing to see.
About ten minutes down the road is the path to the waterfall. Be careful not to miss it, it’s just after the white bridge. A kid came to meet us as we were beginning the path and offered to be our tour guide and take us to the falls. His name was “Argave” and he was 9-years old. It’s a good job he guided us too because we probably would’ve got lost in the forest and taken double the time to find it. We gave him 40PHP of our change. There’s also a donation charge to pay for the waterfalls. There’s a bathroom, seating area and local man watching over visitors. The waterfall itself isn’t exactly a spectacle but it’s pretty. It was the perfect place to cool off in the shaded water.
At about 2:30 we were so hungry we almost turned back around. Until we found a little road-side restaurant. We had vegetable fried rice with egg, and rice with Chopsuey. It was quite delicious and only 150PHP. Their are plenty of “resto stops” on the road, but only a handful of restaurants.
After lunch we headed back to Coron. The drive straight back took about an hour and a half.

However, if you’re feeling more adventurous you can keep going to Old Busanga town where there are more places to eat, or further to find Rio Playa Beach. The lady from our scooter rental shop told us not to go further than New Busanga because there are no repair shops, and you wont want to be stranded out there. If you want to visit Calauite Safari and save money you can also travel there by scooter. Read this blog by The Lost Introvert to find out more information.
Enjoy the ride and drive safe!
