Puerto Princesa: Shared UNESCO Underground River Day Tour

5 reviews
With this tour, you'll get to visit one of the longest navigable underground river in the world. With the help of your guide, you'll get to know more of Puerto Princesa and the wonderful flora and fauna found only in our island. Book this trip if you wish to have a fun-filled day in the city.<br><br>The activity includes pick up from your hotel within 15 kilometers of the airport. We will advise you of your exact pick up time before 7 PM the day prior so you know what time you'll prepare. Have a heavy breakfast because travel time from the city to the wharf is 2 hours. <br><br>Waiting time is inevitable considering that this is one of the most popular tours in Puerto Princesa. Despite this, your guide will endeavor to provide you with one of the most memorable trips in Palawan.<br><br>Lunch will be served at a local restaurant and after, you have the option to join a zip line flight and help the local community who organizes this activity. <br><br>You'll be back at your hotel at around 4 PM.

The butterflies flutters around the park, while its natural predators like lizards and snakes are caged in glasses. The park also features crocodiles, pigs, bear and many other indigenous wildlife species. The best part was the demonstration of the Palawan tribal life. The natural smile in the face of the indigenous people, who made Palawan island as their home thousand years ago,is priceless. Having their pet python around my neck was thrilling. The products on display is largely to help their livelihoods. The entrance ticket is 50 pesos. This is a must-visit spot in Puerto Princesa.

Beautiful butterflies but this place is a small zoo. Not sure about the local family as part of the zoo, living in a mock up village! Couldn't quite get my head round this?

Very pleasant gardens with lovely butterflies and cartoon natives. I suppose this is a way of generating income. Enjoyable.

We went here after going to bakers hill, because it was close. 50 pesos entry and we had a short tour around the small enclosure, but it's such a lovely place! Amazingly they have local indigenous Palawan people, and they show some of their traditional crafts and musical instruments, and show some skills like making fire and shooting blow darts. This felt like an absolute gem of a place, and while the butterfly's were amazing, they also had bearcats, (a real thing!) Scorpions geckos, some different insects and snakes. If you're close, I recommend going, it won't take more than an hour and you'll be glad you went. I suggest you buy something or put some money in the tip box, it's so cheap and the money goes to support the indigenous communities.
