Twin Lagoon

After Banol Beach, our group went to Twin Lagoon - twin because these are two lagoons side by side each other. Out boat docked in one of the lagoons and then we crossed a limestone formation to get to the other lagoon.

Actually when we docked we didn't know what to do. We thought we were going snorkeling by the side of the boat but our tourguide told us that we were supposed to go to the other side. I asked her "Ate kailangan ba ng life vest? (Do we need to wear our life vest?)" and she answered "Ay, ma'am nasa sa inyo po yun kung gusto nyo mag-life vest. (It's up to you if you want to wear one)" Haller! The water was 20feet deep! Good thing I insisted on wearing a life vest (the rest followed suit) or else I would have drowned there hahahaha! Well, I wouldn't have reached the other side if I didn't wear a life vest.

Photo before getting off the boat

We didn't have photos at the other lagoon because we didn't bring any underwater camera. Everyone was afraid to gamble and bring their cameras so they were left in the boat. Well, the cameras would have been soaked because we went under this.

It was really disappointing we didn't have photos because the other side was so magical. Limestone mountains surrounding us - just us and nature. And it was really just us in that massive body of water surrounded by limestone formation. I was surprised actually that I wasn't freaking out during that time, I found it a really peaceful experience. No worries about the outside world - no thoughts about work. Our guides were the best - they were expert divers. We went from one side of the lagoon to the other side. We just stopped because when we reached a rock (underwater), a fish that was nestled there started biting us hahaha! And some of saw a sea snake although they told us when we already left (Coron, that is) so we didn't panicked or anything hehe.
