Is it possible to go to Coron, El Nido and Puero Princesa for for 1 week? Coron is a must for diving the Japanese wrecks? Are the 3 places possible to do and how would you do it?

You better start in Coron as it is for diving you want...on the way back to El Nido- Puerto Princessa

You better fly straight to Coron from Manila - look for a flight to Busuanga airport (Coron).
There are regular flights 5 to 6 times a day with Cebu Pacific or PAL express.

- From Coron to El Nido there are several Bangka ferry company that services Coron- EL NIdo vice versa- 4-5 times a week. Bangka ferry can take upto 7-10 hour journey

- El Nido - Puerto Princessa there are daily buses but is a long journey also

Good info by Shavy, that is the way i would do it. Fly to Busuanga, 2 full days(3n) in coron, boat to El Nido, another 2 nights, then the 5 hr bus/shuttle van to PPC for the last 2 nights.

Coron: shipwreck dives, fresh seafood, freshwater lake, plenty of reasonable resort. Bring anti-mosquito.
El Nido: Upscale resort and more exclusive
Puerto Princesa: Underground river

Lots of online promos from Cebu Pacific with etkt facility. Fly in via Purto Princesa and go northbound after or take Busuanga (Coron) and go southbound. Both doable.

I know a boat owner in Coron so you dont need to pay the middle man fee of travel agencies. Let me know if you them.
