There are several places you can arrive in Palawan:Private charter to El Nido (most expensive)Flight to Coron (2nd most expensive)Flight to Puerto Princesa (least expensive).We picked Puerto Princesa as the centerpiece of this itinerary because it has many activities that will keep you busy, and it’s also the most budget-friendly option. For accommodations, it mostly depends on your budget. You can choose to stay in a cost-efficient hostel, Airbnb, or guesthouse or upgrade to a resort or hotel. Finding a decent place to stay might just be the easiest part of planning your trip, because there are many great options available. Keep in mind that if you are traveling with children, some resorts do not cater to families, so make sure to check ahead.After arriving and settling into your accommodations, you can opt to leave your accommodation and head straight to the city, or just stay in and enjoy the room and the hotel’s facilities.https://www.google.com/travel/hotels/Puerto%20Princesa/entity/CgsI0b20yeDIs4j3ARAB?g2lb=2502548%2C4258168%2C4271060%2C4306835%2C4317915%2C4322823%2C4328159%2C4330862%2C4371335%2C4401769%2C4419364%2C4425458%2C4433754%2C4444000%2C4445603%2C4447566%2C4451649%2C4270859%2C4284970%2C4412693&hl=en&gl=in&un=1&ap=aAE&q=hotels%20in%20puerto%20princesa&rp=ENG9tMngyLOI9wEQ5cfSzuCnqZbdARD0reHU2pzllrwBENTpzZ23jPWMKzgBQABIAqIBJVB1ZXJ0byBQcmluY2VzYSwgUGFsYXdhbiwgUGhpbGlwcGluZXPAAQPIAQA&ictx=1&utm_campaign=sharing&utm_medium=link&utm_source=htls&hrf=CgUIiCcQACIDSU5SKhYKBwjkDxALGAMSBwjkDxALGAQYASgAWAGqAQoKAggSEgIIaBgBqgELCgMI4QISAghjGAGqAQoKAgg1EgIIMRgBkgECIAE
Day 2 – Puerto Princesa Palawan
One of the most well-known sites in the Philippines, and specifically in Puerto Princesa, is the Subterranean River National Park. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and part of the new 7 Wonders of the World. It is a series of long caves stretching 5 miles with a river running through it. It’s famous for its stunning stalactite and stalagmite formations and is home to bats: lots and lots of bats. The guides even tell you to not open your mouth when you’re inside the caves to avoid getting guano (bat poop!) in your mouth. This is definitely a must-see spot in Palawan, and is perfect for nature-loving travelers.
Another place you may choose to visit after the underground river is Ugong Rock, where adventure junkies can get their fix by spelunking, rock climbing, and ziplining through scenic rock formations.
