Palawan: Puerto Princesa and El Nido

Palawan offered its unexplored beauty as we set foot on the breathtaking paradise of Puerto Princesa and El Nido. Definitely one of the best spots in the Philippines, Palawan is filled with countless locations to explore.

Puerto Princesa City Tour
• Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center: Crocodile Farm and Nature reserve
• Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm – natural pool – 15 minutes from Crocodile Farm
• Mitra Ranch (overlooking Honda Bay) – 30 minutes from Iwahig
• Baker’s Hill – delicious patries, can serve as picnic park
• Butterfly Garden - 3 minutes from Baker’s Hill

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park - Underground River Adventure
• 2 hour drive to The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park from city
• Drop by Buena Vista View deck
• Lunch by the cottages :) Be careful of the monkeys.
• Wildlife park – don’t forget to trek the jungle and monkey trail and don’t get lost
• Underground River –also in Sabang, near Sabang Beach and wharf

El Nido – Beach and Island Hopping
• El Nido is 6-8 hours away from Puerto Princesa, but it’s all worth it.
• Island Hopping – Go for Tour A, B, C or D (depending on the location of the islands)
• Snorkeling and Touring Lagoons, caves, and wonderful marine spots
• Fish Feeding and coral reef viewing
• Free lunch at Shimizu Island

The underground and underwater views cannot be displayed in this album, yet they are truly what I enjoyed most. =)

Thanks to Auntie Cita and the rest of the clan in Puerto Princesa for the hospitality and warmth we felt during our stay.
Also to Ate Madette and Kuya Sonny for the tips and support.
To the brothers and sisters of Calero, Malvar and Sta. Monica Congregation, we look forward to being with you again.
To Kuya Danny and his family, we will surely miss you. Belated happy anniversary po sa inyo.

Being a certified beach bum is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. =)

Certainly, I will go back to Palawan (especially El Nido). :)
