Busuanga Island is made up of two towns. Coron in the east, and Busuanga in the west. It is the biggest island in the Calamianes group of islands, located north of Palawan. Busuanga is known for its dive sites, limestones islands, string of white beach islands, water falls, lakes, virgin forests, and wildfire nature reserve. It may be the lesser known town but it encompasses most of the sites of interest in the area. It is pristine, exotic, and uncrowded.
Estancia is a Spanish word for estate or farm. It is another loose transition of a place to stay or inn. This is the perfect word that the owners felt to name their vacation home, as it is all of these. La Estancia Busuanga sits on a private farm and estate, 20 to 30 minutes boat rides from nearby barrios of Salvacion, Panlaitan, and New Busuanga. It is a place not known to many except for a few select friends and family. This is their vacation home where they enjoy entertaining friends and family, which they recently opened to groups/individuals wanting to escape from the hustle-and-bustle of the city and enjoy nature at its best.
