Our very last stop was Barracuda Lake. Hidden in the middle of an island just off Coron, the lake is comprised of differing layers, the first being 10 metres of freshwater, which then changes into 40 metres of salt water that is about 38 degrees Celsius. It's a pretty eerie place, but also extremely beautiful and different to what we had seen previously. Upon the completion of our trip, we spent a night in Coron town before jetting off to Istanbul (where we are now) via Manila and Singapore.
So that pretty much wraps up that leg of our trip. It was a pretty amazing start and something we will never ever forget. I highly recommend checking out Tao and considering Palawan as your next destination, it is a place that will change dramatically in the next few years, so try and get in quickly before it does. We are pretty keen to return to the Philippines and explore more of this beautiful country. It tends to have a bit of bad reputation security wise, however we felt safe at all times and were overcome by the friendliness and hospitality we encountered.
