just want to share lang yung travel namin sa puerto princesa para atleast i can help naman for the ideas once nagdecide kyo na magtravel there. we stayed at RAQ Pensionne.. super sulit ng stay. very accommodating ang mga staff & even yung owner as in hands on. Meron na din silang sariling travel agency so no need maghanap pa. mga tourist guide nila hindi boring kasama kasi kapag travel syempre importante yun para hindi antukin. may service from the airport, yung service naman na ginagamit sa tour eh van naman at malamig ang aircon then may free food pa every tour. wait na mention ko ba na may free souvenir din every tour kaya wala ka ng problema sa pasalubong mo. haha! kung ilan kayo ganon din karami souvenir na matatanggap mo.

basta if you want the BEST experience i recommend you to stay in RAQ Pensionne.. malinis yung rooms, may free breakfast, may souvenir every travel, accommodating & friendly staff, mabait na tourist guide at sya pa magluluto ng food kapag honda bay tour na. two thumbs up :D

hope you enjoy once nagtravel kyo sa puerto princesa!

If you are eyeing Puerto Princesa,  you may want to try out Hibiscus Inn!  It is #1 in TripAdvisor.

Here is a link from their website http://www.puertoprincesahotel.com/

I have also posted a review in my blog about our Palawan visit  http://juvyann19.blogspot.com/2010/10/out-working-in-puerto-princesa-palawan.html.

first time sa Puerto Princesa and so I need help...
« Reply #4 on: January 09, 2012, 01:47:32 pm »

I was able to book a trip to Puerto Princesa for June one time na nakaagap ako ng promo. This would be our first time ni hubby na makapasyal ng Palawan, so it would be a 3days 2nights trip. As for hubby mas prefer niya na DIY na lang kami at wag ng kumuha ng package somehow i agree baka kako mas makatipid pa kami  ;D tama po ba o mali?

Pa-help naman po sa mga nakapag-try na po mag Palawan dyan  ;D the following are my basic concerns rightnow:

Place to stay - hindi kami maarteng mag asawa what matters to us is we have a place to spend the night after a day ng pamamasyal (since pamamasyal naman talaga ipupunta namin dun) saka safe na mapag iiwanan ng gamit na rin. Kaya baka po may mga alam kayong affordable, comfortable and safe na mga Pension House or Inns.

Visit to UnderGround River - mura na po ba yung P1,500/pax na nakita ko online or may alam pa po kayong cheaper?

Crocodile Farm - true po bang sa hapon lang sila nag bubukas? I am drafting our iterinary and yung City Tour namin fall sa last day namin e 2pm flight namin pabalik ng Manila.

eto po pala draft ko ng lakad namin pa-critic naman po kung alin ang pasok o hindi  ;D pasensya na at first timer

1. ETA to PP Airport 0840h Monday
2. Monday afternoon Island Hopping
    Pandan, Snake and Starfish Island
3. Tuesday Undergroung River Tour
4. Wednesday City Tour in the morning
      Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm
      Crocodile Farm**
      Butterfly Garden
      Baker's Hill

      then at 2pm yung flight namin pabalik kaya po ba yang City Tour until before lunch?

pasensya na at napahaba thanks in advance po sa mga makakatulong  ;D  ;D

Nag DIY lang din kami nung nag Puerto Princesa. ito yung existing thread about puerto princesa na ginawa ko before, backead ka for more info.

http://www.smartparenting.com.ph/parentchat/index.php/topic,19241.0.html

ok na yung iti mo na
day 1 honda bay
day 2 UR
day 3 City tour

pero kung maaga mo natapos UR, pwede mo na idiretso ng city tour, ganun ginawa namin dati. kaya yung third day, pahinga na kami, nag palawan museum lang kami. may blog post ako about PP just in case you need it. yung crocodile farm, parang pag weekend sa hapon langs iya open, 2PM yata.

^thanks much sis... may nabasa kasi ako 2 different blog regarding crocodile farm visit and nabanggit na naghintay pa sila mag open ng 1:30 bago sila nakapasok and thats weekdays... i will consider your suggestion na isingit na ang city tour if may time pa sa Day 1 and Day 2 lalo at mahirap maghabol ng time pag iniisip yung flight pabalik  ;) thanks again...


one more concern nga pa po pala regarding DIY island hopping... sabi around 1k+ ang rent ng boat i wonder lang po if may permit pang dapat kunin. if meron how and where to secure a permit? thanks

^kung airphil ang nabili mo ng ticket, kaya yan, ganyan din flight namin dati, delayed pa nga nung papunta. sa honda day, i-whole day mo na. pero yung city tour pwede mo masingit sa UR, madali lang UR, 45 minutes lang yung sa cave. matagal pa yung travel time.

malapit lang ang airport, kami nga super aga nagpahatid, ending naghihintay kami sa labas ng airport at sarado pa, tuwing may flight lang yata nagbubukas, e past 2PM pa flight namin.  :(

ang may permit lang sa UR, pagdating namin ng day 1, kumuha na ko ng permit bago maghonda bay para makakuha ng maagang sked.

share ko sayo blogpost ko para may idea ka. DIY yan.

^sis, may parang mini kubo dun, dun kayo magregister and magbayad, may choice ka naman na makishare ng boat para makasave ka o i-rent niyo yung boat which is P1,500 nga. compute mo sis, kung san ka mas makakamura kung mag agency or DIY. hirap kasi 2 lang din kayo.

yes, sis pwede makishare para tipid, yun nga lang parang kumuha ka rin ng tour kasi kung lilipat na ng island, kahit ayaw mo pa, lilipat ka na rin kasi kakahiya sa ibang kasama. parang may food na rin yata kasi pag sa agency ka kumuha, siguro yung island hopping and UR pwede ka na mag agency para less hassle pero city tour kahit magrent ka lang ng trike, i think P500 lang bayad, not sure kung ganun pa rin rate til now.

^DIY na lang talaga sis ang City Tour since isisingit singit na lang namin eto if saan may ample time and Island Hopping na rin since nakikita ko na mas tipid, if incase na above P1500 makuha naming boat just for us may menos pa rin compared if we will a package na nasa P1,200/pax  pang pasalubong na din yun ;D UR naman I am considering Audissie Pension Package for P4,800 inclusion of room accommodation and UR thats good for two na ...

^P1,200 ang island hopping, ang mahal nga, mas menos kung kuha ka na nga lang ng boat, solo niyo pa at walang kasama. ok na rin yung package mo, hindi lang ko familiar sa pension. sa ysabelle mansion kasi kami nagstay. first choice ko puerto pension kaso one room na lang available nila, e i need 4 rooms. 1 month before pa ko nagpabook nun. pero ok naman ang stay ko sa ysabelle, ok din food.
