Traveling from Coron to Boracay is a very simple short flight, passing over beautiful islands and the scenic hills of Coron. Traveling throughout the Philippines can be difficult at times when trying to find ferries, flights and bus transport that aren’t too time consuming.
My flight with Air Juan Philippines was sponsored but all opinions remain my own.

HOW TO GET FROM CORON TO BORACAY
I found myself in Coron needing to arrive directly to Boracay. I didn’t want to spend my whole day flying to Manila or Puerto Princesa and then taking a second flight to Boracay. Searching for available options I discovered Air Juan Philippines offered a 1-hour flight from Coron to Boracay.There is no airport on Boracay. The flight lands on Caticlan, which is nearby and then you need to take a ferry for 200 Pesos to Boracay. The ferry is only 10-15 minutes.
The airport in Coron is only 30 minutes from the town and while it is quite small everything went smoothly and was well organized. The plane was one of the smallest I have been on capable of seating 6 passengers. Despite it’s size the plane ride was smooth and both landing and take-off were comfortable.
CORON TO BORACAY VIEWS
The best part about the journey is the amazing views throughout the entire journey. Taking off from Coron, I was able to enjoy the rolling hills that line the coast. Immediately after leaving Coron hundreds of islets cover the deep blue ocean. The flight was worth it jus for the views and I actually joked that people might take this route and fly back immediately just as a joy flight.
When you arrive in Coron you will be overwhelmed with activities and island hopping options as there is so much to do here.
The flight was 3799 Pesos or $80 USD booked through Air Juan Philippines.
