Kaba Kaba Grace and Kevin will try and make your stay at Kaba Kaba a worthwhile holiday experience. If it’s adventure or just a time to chill out, Coron, Busuanga is the Philippine island for you. Kevin can take you SCUBA diving or Grace will cook that special meal.Island HoppingThe Island of Busuanga has so much to offer. Take a day exploring some of the 700 island making up the group of Islands knows as the Calamianis. Organized tours includes lunch and entry fees to island beeches and viewing spots.SCUBA DivingHave a go at SCUBA diving. If you enjoy the water why not take a day and have a try. Kevin will take you to an island beach where you can try it out with an experienced instructor in shallow water. Once you’ve got the hang of it, it’s time to explore the reef and have an experience of a life time. After lunch on the boat and a chill on the island, if you’re up for it you can try another dive site. If you’re hooked on diving it’s time to get you license and dive the wrecks, some of the best dive sites in the world!!! No exaggeration.In 1944 the American navy launched an airborne attack from the East Coast of the Philippines to the western Islands of the Calamianis in the South China Sea where the Japanese had moved their supply fleet from Manila, thinking it was beyond the reach of the Americans. But the three squadrons of bombers had auxiliary fuel tanks to make the longest airborne navy raid of the 2nd world war. We now have twelve wreck sites that make Coron wreck diving one of the top ten wreck sites in the world. There is diving for all from wrecks at just a few meters below the surface to 45m dives for the suitably qualified and experienced diver.For qualified divers wreck diving can be a breath taking experience. Going down the line to the wreck for the first time is exciting at the same time as being an anxious moment thinking about you’re experience. For the experienced and adventurous diver the Coron wrecks make great penetration dives. From a gentle look into the cargo holds to exploring rooms on the lower deck levels and checking out the engine bays and propeller shafts.

We had a great stay at Kaba Kaba! The room was really nice with a lovely balcony to relax on. Our room was cleaned during our stay which was great. Kevin and Grace are incredibly helpful with everything. The breakfast was lovely and we hired a bike during our stay which was great. This is the place to stay in Coron especially as it's a little out of the town so is so lovely and quiet.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We know that staying out of town in the rain-forest with all the little critters is not for everyone but when guests appreciate what we enjoy every day it does give us a little buzz. Busuanga island is a great place to explore and enjoy we love it and its good to see others enjoy the island. Thanks again Cheers Kevin & Grace

We had a nice stay at Kaba-Kaba. Grace was very welcoming, kind and informative. The location is great.... just 10 minutes by trike from town. It was very easy and fun to catch the trikes to go into town then back! And though Coron town is a bit noisy, it is a great base to go island hopping and snorkeling! The snorkeling is exceptional !!!! Every day we would go to the boat pier, hire a boat (better to reserve the night before), go to the market with our boatman and buy the ingredients for our lunch, head out to sea, snorkel, eat the delicious lunch prepared by our boatman, laze on a remote island with crystal clear water and nice snorkeling just off the beach then head back to town. Just heavenly! Kaba-Kaba was a great base to do this from. And it would be perfect if just a little more maintenance were done on the cottages.

Kaba-Kaba is truly a hidden gem. Kevin and Grace go out of there way to make sure you have a great time! The staff (Alice) is very friendly and helpful. Only a 5-10 minute trike ride (costing 30-60 pesos) into the city, it's perfectly situated so you can relax and have a nice quite spot to enjoy the countryside. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

A really good place for a budget traveller to stay while staying in Coron. A quiet place only a 30peso trike ride away from Coron town. The hosts Kevin and Grace are a sweet couple and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Definitely will stay again in Kaba-Kaba when visiting Coron.

I stayed at Kaba Kaba in December with my partner. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Grace - one of the owners - who made sure to suggest activities in the area and book them for us. The room was great, beautiful view. Location was just a perfect. A 5 minute ride into town (and tricycles can be easily flagged down at any time of day and night), Kaba Kaba still gives you peace and quiet. Absolutely loved it!! Grace and Kevin made our stay memorable and I would definitely recommend it to others.
