Coron-Day One (Part 2): The Climb to Mount Tapyas and a dip at Maquinit Hot Spring

We were rejuvenated after an hour of rest from roaming around, buying souvenirs and food in Coron town. The sea view from the window of Birang Guest House to where we will stay for four days was so delightfully refreshing.
