Wisdom from the Road #51

On subways and exits
Large subway stations have many exits. Choose the right one (closest to your destination), not just any exit. Of course you can still find your way above ground even if you take the farthest exit from your destination, but you might have to go a long way around buildings and properties to get to where you want to go...or you might find yourself on the other side of the train tracks.

Coron Accommodation: Zuric Pension Coron

Our PAL flight to Cebu from Busuanga was cancelled and we were housed at Zuric Pension Coron. The pension house is in the center of town, just across Centro Coron, and is therefore also walking distance from Mt. Tapyas, the market, and the port.

On the outside Zuric Pension Coron looks like a simple three-storey building. We walk in to a simple, barely furnished lobby. Up the stairs and we discover that the building was added/attached to a house (which is now part of the pension house). Our room is in the "house" part of the pension house.

The room for four (Php 3000) with ensuite toilet and shower was spacious and clean. The room had an air conditioning unit, a wall fan, and a TV. Towels and toilet paper were provided. Breakfast though is not included. Meals can be ordered through the reception and it will be served at the common dining area.

Zuric Pension Coron has WiFi but it was either very weak or nonexistent at our room which was at the back end of the third floor.

The best thing about this pension house is the very kind and friendly owner, Mary Ann. While we were waiting for the van to pick us up and take us to the airport, she spent some time talking with us and sharing about her life. By the time the van arrived, she had finished her life story and it felt like we were old friends.
