The island, full of beautiful landscapes and lonely beaches with varied marine fauna, is one of the most precious jewels of a country with more than 7,000 islands that tries to open a gap between the tourist destinations of Southeast Asia as a paradise for diving and snorkeling .
The gateway to the umbrella island It is located in its capital, Puerto Princesa, where the airport is located, although it is convenient to banish the idea that in Philippines People speak Spanish, it is relatively easy to understand people. As a general rule, Filipinos are friendly and speak English in a very intelligible way and, in the case of the palahueños, the perception of tourism as something clearly positive facilitates the life of the visitor. Of course, it is not so frequent to run into European tourists.
Travel guides often refer to Palawan as the last border of the Philippines, a paradise, little exploited by tourism, the most remote from the Philippine archipelago and with very simple infrastructures. Palawan has two of the main attractions of the Philippines, both wonders of nature: on the one hand the Underground River National Park, the longest in the world under the surface; and on the other, the beaches of El Nido and the Bacuit archipelago, one of the most spectacular places in Southeast Asia.
The trip usually includes food on the beach of Sabang and return to the Puerto Princesa hotel.The true jewel of Palawan It is located 274 kilometers north of Puerto Princesa. It is easy to get there, as buses and vans leave from the terminal of the capital of Palahueña, but the trip is long and arduous. Going along the irregular route – stretches of highway with bumpy roads are interspersed – can take between five and six hours by van.On the contrary, the best start to enjoy El Nido may be to sit on the beach and feel the only tourist who is practically enjoying one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
