Since the start of the pandemic we made many rice donations and we have been paying the medicines for all tribe members of Coron Island that asked for. (the problem is that they are over 2500!!). Just to mention the last rice donations, between October and December 2021 we donated 10.000 kg of rice (200 sacks) to the two tribe villages of Coron Island and 9.000 more kg in January and February 2022. Saturday 2nd of April and Sunday 3rd of April 2022 we donated other 120 sacks of rice (6.000 kg).  On 13th of May 2022 and on 15th of May 2022 we have  donated 70 more sacks of rice (3.500 kg). On 27th and 28th of June 2022 we have made another donation of 80 more sacks of rice (4.000kg). On 31st of August 2022 we made another 72 sacks of rice (3,600 kg) donation to the two tribe villages. Other 70 sack of rice (3,500 kg) have been delivered on 30th September 2022. other 70 sacks of rice (3500 kg) were delivered on 5th November 2022. other 70 sacks were delivered on 28th December 2022.  We are planning another rice donation in the two weeks days. We are trying to keep donating rice regularly  and to keep paying the medicines for all of them that need, till the Tagbanua Tribe Foundation will have enough incomes from the entrance fees to support the villages. We have just 16 rooms but we employ 146 young people, most of them (90%) from the Tagbanua Tribe that owns Coron Island (ancestral domain). We teach them to work from zero (almost all of them did not study and never worked before!) and we pay a lot higher salary than the average. All this not because we were asked to do it (in our lease contract for the lagoons with the tribe they asked to employ one tribe member!), but because we really wanted to involve the tribe members since the beginning. We are giving discount to our guests to boost our cash flow and be able to keep helping the Tagbanua tribe members of Coron Island!!

That is why we ask full payment at the booking!

                                                                  CANCELLATION POLICY: 
We also offer free rebooking but please not in the last 10 days since we will not be able to resell the room and we have 146 employees with 16 rooms!
Note for guests that are planning to come from El Nido by ferry:
Since the fast ferries from El Nido to Coron (4/6 hours) are sometimes cancelled for technical problems or for sea conditions, we suggest to check the flight with Airswift that should cost the same amount and takes just 35 minutes (we pick you up for free at the airport). In case you decide to take the ferry, we strongly recommend to pay few USD to make a travel insurance that will cover the risk of ferry cancellation since this will affect all your trip and bookings.

Just recently (June 1, 2022) a group of 5 guests had a ferry ticket to come to Coron from El Nido. In that day the Coast Guard suspended for few hours the sea connections between El Nido and Coron (ferries and boats) for a low pressure that COULD have affected the area. Since the sea condition were not affected, the Coast Guard allowed the sea connections again at 12 noon (midday) on the same day but the ferry company decided not to run the ferry anyway in that day. The flight with AirSwift was fully booked (last minute), the Seaplane was considered too expensive by them and they did not want to take another boat since they said that the Ferry Company would have not refunded the tickets to them so they would have lost the amount paid if they did not run with them on the day after. So the guests came by ferry to Coron a day after but we were fully booked in that day. We proposed a free rebooking  on the following day, Friday (first day we have availability) but the guests had the flight out from Coron on that day and they did not want to postpone their flight to the day after (Saturday) even if it costed just 500 pesos rebooking fee). So we proposed a free rebooking for the future without limit of time but guests insisted to have a refund saying they did not have any service from us. We explained that their room was locked for them and being fully booked we had to refuse other guests for that room and that having 146 employees with just 16 rooms we could not really afford to refund guests for an event depending on a third part (the ferry company decided not to run the ferry even if the coast guard allowed the trips and with calm sea conditions) and on their decision (They decided not to take another boat  to avoid loosing the fare they paid for the ferry and they did not want to postpone their flight of one day). Guests did not have any travel insurance and insisted to get the refund  from us
