      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 :)

      Hi, we are a couple arriving in Manila in December for a 7 days of vacation. We would like to go to Palawan but I read that the best of the island is el nido which is far away from puerto princesa. Is There a flight from Manila to el nido? Does the island offer good attractions (excursions,good beaches, ecc) also in the rest of the island? How can we move on the island? As alternative we are thinking to go to Coron with a flight. 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?

The hotel should be decent as well. Any suggestions? We looked into trip advisor but hard to say which is a good stay. Please help! Thanks!

      My husband and I are booked to go to the Philippines in April. We are planning to stay in El Nido or Puerto Princesa? Which one would you guys recommend? We plan to stay there for approximately 4 nights before heading to Boracay.
      Are there tour groups there that do last minute trips? Or should we prebook? Also, if we decide not to join a tour until we get there... how easy is it to get a cab to our hotel?

      We are trying to organise a family holiday to Palawan and have been looking some of the pre booked tours. The plus side with the tours is everything is arranged, but then I am worried we might miss out on other sights and tours sticking to the schedule. Would it be better/cheaper to just try and base ourselves somewhere and then look at what tours/outings we can organise ourselves?

    • Bringing jetskis to northen palawan

      Province of Palawan May 14, 2014 at 8:12 AM

      So here is my idea... Go to northen palawan. Find a freighter or something that can transport 2 jetski to northen palawan (el nido area) and meet up with the skis there. Probably be based in some simple resort in el nido. Plan is to use the jetski a to explore the surrounding areas of interest.

      Questions: assuming I can get my personal skis to el nido, would it be safe to "park" them on the beach of the resort where I'm staying and not worry about them?
      Questions: since they run on fuel and will eventually run dry, are there facilities in the area to get "clean" fuel?
      Questions: I've never been to the place but have seen and analyzed dozens of videos, is using jet skis to explore the place practical?, in terms of distances, should I have enough fuel on the skis to go island hoping without having to refill the tanks every 2 hrs or so? Planing on a leisurely pace not going full throttle ....
