Welcome to Puerto Princesa, a coastal city on Palawan Island in the western Philippines! Acting as a base for boat trips through massive limestone caves and an underground river, Puerto Princesa is well-known for its seaside promenade lined with palm trees that draws walkers, bicyclists and joggers year round.

Spend the afternoon touring the biodiverse Subterranean River National Park, a protected area of the Philippines. The park is located in the Saint Paul Mountain Range on the western coast of the island, about 80 kilometres north of the city centre and contains the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River. Dive into the local scene and dine at an authentic Filipino restaurant for dinner.

Rise early in the morning to enjoy breakfast at your hotel and hop on a boat for an island-hopping adventure in Honda Bay. Just 45 minutes north of the city proper, Honda Bay features multiple stunning islands with white sand beaches.

Spend the day adventuring its many islands, snorkeling with the starfish, lounging on the beach, and eating at an island buffet. Visiting the islands of Honda Bay is at the top of many traveler’s bucket lists, so be sure to not miss out on this incredible opportunity.

Before beginning your departure home, enjoy a final breakfast at the hotel and, depending on your timeline, explore the town of Puerto Princesa. As you’re ready, say your goodbyes and head to the airport for onward journeys and departures home.

Maligayang pagdating sa Pilipinas!

Comprised of over 7,000 islands, the Philippines is a Southeast Asian country that sits in the Western Pacific Ocean. Its capital, Manila, is famous for its waterfront promenade and centuries-old Chinatown, Binondo. Seemingly, the small clusters of islands all tell their own tales from featuring a famous, 19th-century citadel to rice terraces, underground rivers and pristine beaches.
