      • Hi, Irene! Thanks for dropping by… here is my puerto princesa itinerary https://violetxplorer.wordpress.com/tag/puerto-princesa-itinerary.

Here is the number of our guide for PPUR 09213112831… they have the cheapest combined group tour (but good service) for the underground river Php 1300 only and maybe they could arrange your El Nido transfer.
        If you need more help just let me know. Enjoy planning and enjoy Palawan. 😀

  2. Hi me and my friends are planning to go to puerto prinsesa can you help me plan our itinerary we will be arriving feb 3 2014 7:10 am and we’ll back to manila feb 5 6:50pm. thanks your help is greatly appreciated

    • Hi Christine! Sure! I am happy to help you plan your trip. How many people to travel? the bigger the better (tour packages) but if not, lets try DIY to save few pesos.
      I suggest for
      *Day 1: PPUR tour + Ugong Rock + Sabang Zipline + Tiangge + Ka Lui (dinner);
      *Day 2: Honda Bay (7-4PM) + temple (before 5PM) + Ka Inato (dinner 6PM) + firefly watching (by 8 PM); and
      *Day 3: City tour. baker’s hill, mitras ranch, palawan museum, baywalk, cathedral, plaza quartel, WWII museum. Kinabuch and noki nocs for lunch and early dinner (near the airport, too).
      Now, all u have to do is to find a perfect hotel/hostel w/c is accessible to the tourist spots in the city. tricycle fare would be cheaper, u can save few pesos and u’ll never be late for your flight.

      Notice: Activities for each day are jam-packed (suitable for high-energy traveler). Never waste any moment. Sleep and travel time is the only rest.
      I hope this may help. xoxo
