Puerto Princesa: Shared UNESCO Underground River Day Tour

5 reviews
With this tour, you'll get to visit one of the longest navigable underground river in the world. With the help of your guide, you'll get to know more of Puerto Princesa and the wonderful flora and fauna found only in our island. Book this trip if you wish to have a fun-filled day in the city.<br><br>The activity includes pick up from your hotel within 15 kilometers of the airport. We will advise you of your exact pick up time before 7 PM the day prior so you know what time you'll prepare. Have a heavy breakfast because travel time from the city to the wharf is 2 hours. <br><br>Waiting time is inevitable considering that this is one of the most popular tours in Puerto Princesa. Despite this, your guide will endeavor to provide you with one of the most memorable trips in Palawan.<br><br>Lunch will be served at a local restaurant and after, you have the option to join a zip line flight and help the local community who organizes this activity. <br><br>You'll be back at your hotel at around 4 PM.

This resort is now called Esmeralda Villa. You can reach it by boat from Port Barton or via a bumpy road. Take the boat if you can. This place has a few large bungalows, but caters mainly to day trippers who come and go throughout the day. They do not stay overnight though. Check-in went smoothly and the accommodation is clean with lots of light, plugs, comfortable beds and a good size bathroom. No safe in room, no wifi, no water. There is a/c, but you might as well open the windows (there are screens) to enjoy the breeze. Rooms were not cleaned during our two night stay, so use the towels with care. No electricity between midnight and 17:30, which also means no hot water. If you want to take a warm shower, do it at night. In general quiet, even if the resident dogs made their presence known and bats dropped all kinds of stuff on the thin roof, which woke us up a couple of times. The grounds are very well kept, with leaves swept every morning. There is a smoking section, however smoking seems to happen everywhere. Pre-order your food. Best choice for breakfast was the French toast. Coffee is the three in one kind, like in many other countries in Asia. Not everything on the menu is available all the time, so check. Same goes for drinks. The pizza was good with lots of cheese and a thin crust. You can book excursions to go island hopping, but we decided to take it easy. Good swimming from the beach. A few hammocks are available. Very pleasant surprise. If you can live off the grid for a few days, this is the place to go.

This is simply stunning, a beautiful place. The food was delicious and the staff super friendly. If you can, stay a couple of days and just soak up the sun and the chilled atmosphere. A place to really relax

We had this wonderful white sand beach all to ourselves in the morning before the boats arrive from Port Barton. The water is nice to swim in and use of the facilities (including hammocks) is included in the PHP 50 entrance/user fee.

We chose to have a lazy day here and didn't regret it, we soaked up the sun, had a swim and explored the beach. There is a rest bar here which was little expensive but we only had drinks. There is a 50php pp charge arrival but this allows you to use the toilets/ showers on the islands so in my opinion was well worth it.
