Hellowww guys, just got a short and simple post today because other than the Underground River, we really didn’t do much in Puerto Princesa.
From El Nido, we hired a van and drove for about five hours to Puerto Princesa; we arrived around lunch time. The driver of the van took us straight to a buffet lunch restaurant (can’t remember the name!) but the food was good.
After lunch we made our way to the waiting area for us to get on a boat. We had someone arrange this for us since the lines do get quite long. He had already listed us up in the morning so we didn’t wait too long for our turn.
The boats are quite small, I would say good for 6 to 8 people. It’s about a 15 minute ride to get to the island.
Once we arrived, our guide, again queued us up for the underground river tour. We waited a while for this, maybe 30 minutes. There were a lot of people!
The also give you audio guides for the tour because they want to limit the noise made inside the cave.
I don’t any pictures inside the cave but its really so amazingly beautiful! One of those places that you have to see with your own eyes. I have a few videos though that I’ll try to upload soon!
I hope that in the years to come, it stays like this and the local government protects its beauty; it is of course a UNESCO World Heritage site. And now leaving you guys with a reminder, for any place you go:
