What We Love About Palawan

Palawan Island is one of Philippines' hidden beauties located in the region of MIMAROPA. One of the best ways to explore the area is to go on island hopping tours and enjoy the tropical landscapes of Luli Island, Cowrie Island and Starfish Island - all perfect for snorkeling or a lazy day on the beach. Swing by El Nido to discover Snake Island and visit Cudugnon Cave which was once a local hideout. Check out Palawan's very own African safari at the Calauit Game Refuge and Wildlife Sanctuary and get up close and personal with zebras, giraffes, and the brown deer! Sunsets on the island are a plenty but for a unique sunrise experience, head to Puerto Princesa and hike up Mt. Magarwak!

We had a great time on this tour. The wait for the underground river was going to take quite a long time so we were able to do the mangrove tour and zip line first. Saw some cool snakes on the mangrove tour and the views from the zip line were breathtaking. The underground river was very interesting and the guide provided a lot of fun facts about the features. If you get seasick take some Dramamine because the bangka ride to the cave can be choppy.

This tour is highly recommended, these islands are so idyllic. Water is so crystal clear and the location is very secluded. What I appreciate the most is that the islands are undeveloped and well taken care of. Sobrang ganda ng bulog, samahan mo pa ng banana island then last destination is malcapuya sobrang solid!! I would also recommend Calamian travel & tours, their quality is really the best!!

Totally recommend this tour! Klook was so kind to rebook our tour last minute when we weren’t able to depart from Manila on our supposed flight day. It was such an easy transaction. But most importantly, Calamian Island Travel And Tours made sure that we made the most out of our trip. We had 8 destinations but our tour guides made sure that we enjoyed each one without rushing. While snorkeling, they even set a lifeguard that checks everyone to make sure that everyone’s safe. And our tour guides are the best! Please request for kuya Dalton and kuya Ryan to be your tour guides when you take this tour. They will take care of you and they are easy to get along with. They are also funny and they cooked really good food. They are very hands on, they can take AMAZING PHOTOS OF YOURS and they are just seriously THE BEST. After this tour, we booked another tour with them for the following day because of how much we liked our service. Remember, request for Kuya Dalton and Kuya Ryan 😊

There is a Chinese guide commentary in the underground river, and there are many bats above it. It is recommended not to open your mouth. The restaurant lunch with sea view is beautiful, and the buffet dishes are acceptable. The ATV buggy is very exciting. There is no hair dryer in the hotel’s freshening area, so you have to bring your own towels. Overall evaluation this trip can be bought.
