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...

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!...

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...

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...

My fiancé and I stayed at Kaba Kaba our whole time in Coron and we had an absolutely wonderful experience. Kevin and Grace, the owners, were beyond hospitable, kind, and helpful.

Transfer from airport to accommodation was arranged by Kaba Kaba (150 php). The shuttle dropped me off right in front of the entrance. Kaba Kaba also has their own trike driver to drive you from the entrance up to the cottages. It’s short but steep climb on an unpaved, rocky dirt road that should only take a minute or two....

We stayed for five nights and enjoyed every one. As said below, great hosts, decent breakfasts and good no frills bungalows with great views. It's a little out of town so trikes or bikes needed to get about. The best element is Kevin, an English dive instructor and wreck enthusiast who will take you out solo or as a couple...

We had a great stay at Kaba Kaba! For a modest price (600p) you get a nice room with fan and private shower/bath, on top of a hill overlooking the island and the nearby monkeys. No water heater, but it is not necessary in this area. Grace and Kevin are the lovely owners of the place and are both really...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less

“The blue room has the best spot for an overlooking sea and sunset view. At the same time you'll see beautiful butterflies and birds. The best thing about it is that, when you sit on that really nice balcony every morning, and drink your hot tea or coffee, and just taking in the view, it’s just simply awesome.”
