      Which tour is better?

      Coron Island Jun 29, 2015 at 6:58 AM

      Hi. We're choosing between Siete Pecados/ Barracuda Lake tour against Calauit Safari Tour. Which tour is more worth our while? We already have arrangements for the other tourist spots which are usually island hopping/swimming activities.
      Thank you.

    • El Nido and Bacuit Archipelago

      Palawan Jun 16, 2015 at 1:16 PM

      We have bought flight tickets to Manila, leaving Christmas Day and will stay for two weeks. Our plan is to stay two days in Manila and then fly to Puerto Princesa on Palawan.

      We have read all previous posts, but still have a couple of questions regarding Palawan and where to stay.

      1. We plan to go to El Nida area and stay there. Should we stay in central El Nida to have close to the boats to Bacuit archipelago or should we choose to stay at one of the braches close to El Nido?
      2. Which of the beaches close to El Nido is the most beautiful one? Lonely Planet lists Palabayan and Las Cabanas
      3. Or should we stay on one of the archipelago islands? We have been recommended Miniloc, but the only hotel we find there to book online is Miniloc Island Resort, which is a bit more expensive than what we have planned to pay. Can someone recommend a hotel for about $120 on Miniloc? Or should we opt for another island?

      Thanks from Lena

    • Hiring van or car in Coron town.

      Coron Mar 30, 2015 at 1:19 PM

      I am travelling from El Nido to Coron by outrigger boat. When I arrive in Coron, I have to get from the pier to my hotel, Al Faro Hotel, located in D'Pearl Bay area, which is about 50 minute drive from Coron town. Since I am not arriving in Coron at an exact time, I can't make arrangements for the hotel van to pick me up. Does anyone know if there are cars or vans for hire in the pier area that I can hire on the spot and will take me to that area ?

    • where to stay

      Palawan Jan 25, 2015 at 8:32 PM

      There are four of us going to Palawan in late April. We will be there for 5 nights and are planning on flying into El Nido and spending all of our time in that area. What are islands and beaches that can't be missed in the Bacuit Archipelago? I think we would like to spend 2 days relaxing on the beaches, and three days exploring a few islands.

      Other ideas were to fly into Puerto Princessa and spend the night in Sabang to see the underground river and then head up to El Nido, but I know that one day would be all driving.

      Thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.

      My wife and I are planning on travelling to Palawan for anywhere between 2-5 months in late 2015 (depending on the weather and visa requirements). We've got a winter to spend and we love sandy beaches and clear waters. Where would you suggest staying for this period of time? We'd like to have the opportunity of nearby island hopping, excursions to beautiful beaches etc. What is a good way to find an apartment for long term rent? Thank in advance for the help!!

      Where to stay in Puerto Princesa

      Palawan Dec 16, 2014 at 7:04 PM

      Hey all, we are backpackers traveling to Palawan in late Jan. We land in the eve and are looking for a good place for 2 nights. Preferably a place with pool. We will spend up to $50ish per nite because we want comfort after a 27hr flight. (after that we will be back to backpacker budget) It would be ideal to find something in walking distance or bicycle to restaurants, beaches,etc.
      Can anyone help out with recommendations.
      Thanks SO much :)

What do you suggest to us? Please HELP us? We are very busy!!!

    • How safe is it to explore northern Palawan on a motorcycle?

      Province of Palawan Nov 7, 2014 at 3:32 PM

      Hi, everyone! I plan to visit Palawan soon and would like to rent a motorcycle in Puerto Princesa. I thought of going toward El Nido and exploring all the beaches along the way as well any other things that catch my attention. I understand that there are unpaved roads that go trough jungle. How safe is it to travel there alone? Someone advised me against this because it is too dangerous. That if I really wanted to do it, I should have a group of well equipped and armed people and a trusted guide. How much of this reflects reality?
