Maquinit Hot Springs, Coron, Palawan

Another place one should visit while in Coron, Palawan is the Maquinit Hot Springs. It is located in the hillside part of Coron, about 25 minutes from the town center. Visitors will be enchanted by circling pools filled with steaming water oozing from the bottom of the nearby mountain. It is said to come from an underground volcano thus explaining why the water’s temperature ranges from 38-40 degree Celsius.

I felt the heat right away during my first dip. It took a few minutes before my body settled into a groove with the temperature. It then became very relaxing. Swimming or just dipping your whole body into the hot spring brings a dose of therapy to your aching muscles and bones.

Around the hot pools, one will be enthralled by the mangroves where the hot spring water spills out and eventually meet the open sea. Thick stems rising out of the ground forms varied figures in one's imagination.

After arriving at Busuanga Airport, we went straight to our lodge and settled in our room and rested for about 25 minutes before heading out to Maquinit Hot Springs. We thought we were rushing things but it turns out going for a swim there after a long trip actually did wonders to our body as it soothed and relaxed our muscles. Just do remember to get out of the hot spring once in a while as a lengthy stay under hot water can produce a bit of dizzy spell, but all things considered it is actually great for the body.

Everything seems right in place, the location of the pool, the mangroves plus the scenic view around the area all conspired to make Maquinit Hot Springs a very unique place.


We enjoyed our time here that we went back again on our last night for a bit of night swimming. And I don’t mind coming back again sometime in the near future. How I wish there's a hot spring like Maquinit near our house.
