Hey, im from puerto princesa. And palawan is the best food for the eyes, and chocolates to your head; i mean memories. well, im not that good on grammars,etc. for the benefit of understanding, i'll be specific. palawan has the longest underground river stretching over 17km, we have atleast 2 known Waterfalls; the nacpan and estrella. the tallest mountain here is called cleopatras needle, ideal for hikers for its diverese luxury of green routes and virgin forest. and i can tell, its best to hike with a bike! you can rent motor for 600php/day and thats negotiable! accommodations as low as 800php/room with private bathrooms ideal for backpakers, or choose luxury rooms which is not always booked. *laughs
if you want "banka" a small 10seater boat, which few knows you can rent it. its available for as low as 3k/day. its much more cheaper than booking on a travellers packages. that cost around 1500php/person. well, thats all prices and tags just leave a comment if you want to know anything. from cheap to costly valuable services. i suggest, if you wanna go fishing go to bataraza, its on the southern part of palawan. if you want, historical places such as old forts from spanish pre-colonial to colonial; go to taytay. if you want to go diving we have the famous el nido and coron. these places is where, life of your phone battery might be really really drained. i suggest go pro, endorsing it like hell. well, for the sake of not being so proud at my hometown. if you want to see gods artistic talent, come and see!
Tips: as locals, we pay only 10php/person in tricycle. tricycle is a common transpo in philippines. 15php/person 8km - 20php/person 9km and so on.
on taxi, you might pay over 160php in 8km.
If lost, try to talk on tourist police booth; a small hut. we have it in every corner.
Or leave me a comment below.
