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!

I Highly recommend this tour. The places that we visited were all beautiful. From the amazing rock formations to the white sand beaches and the crystal clear waters. We have an amazing guide who made sure of our safety and that we had a great experience during the whole tour. Too bad our go pro got water damaged at our first stop . we were not able to get as many photos as we like but we surely had the time of our lives👍🏼

Its always nice to know the history of every place that you visit and we started our tour by exploring the coron town proper. our guide was really fun. he was actively offering to take out photos. We had ao much fun hiking, getting souvenirs and visiting different parts of the town. Coron is a small town but it is always nice to have someone tour you around if you are new in the place plus our guide shares history and stories of the different places that we have visited . :)

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.
