Welcome to the forum guys. Do share your experience on here after you get back. Been looking forward to go there myself but can't due to work. Safe travels and hope you have a wonderful time.

Got back today. Puerto Princesa was lovely and the underground river fantastic.

I was expecting it to be a bit like Vietnam with everybody after your money and overcharging you but it wasn't really like that.

The taxis and tricycles were very cheap and the drivers all friendly and helpful (100php for a driver to take us from the airport, to a nearby shopping place and wait 30 minutes whilst we had some t-shirts printed on the last day, can't go wrong). The food was great and there was a lot to see and do there.

Firefly spotting at Iwahig is a must. Honda Bay was nice and a fun day out but not as beautiful as I imagined. Starfish Island was my favourite. Very good snorkelling there once you get out from shore to where it's deeper you see a lot.

Wow, sounds like you guys had a great trip!
Thanks for sharing the experience, I know where my next destination could be now, especially the snorkeling part I like.

What about flights/transportation, was it a hassle to get there?

Cheers

It was fairly easy, it's only an hour from Manila and quite cheap. What we did was fly to Manila early in the morning, have a full day there and then fly to Puerto Princesa in the late evening.

Transport on Palawan is pretty cheap. 1000 php for us to get a driver to Honda Bay and pick you after. You can haggle to get them cheaper but really, a 1000 php is nothing so we didn't bother.

Thanks for the info, sounds pretty do-able! Definitely will add that onto my list.
