You have to at least do it once! Do the trek to and take the boat back. It is a must experience nature attraction in the Philippines.

I was mesmerized by the beauty of this underground river. No wonder why it was on the 7 Wonders of the World. 😁

Out of the way but a unique experience. Several hours out of Puerto Princesa by private charter. Reasonably priced souvenirs and buffet lunch available. Buffet lunch is average and costs about $4 with water. Tour includes noisy motor boat ride to location of River entrance. A short walk and then a wait (depends on number of people) for your 1.5km...

Amazing!!! Really deserving to be included in the 7 wonders of the world! The boat men is funny and knows what he is saying. They volunteer to take pictures of you before you enter the cave. People in Palawan are really approachable,

you cant come here without visiting this underground river. really was incredible. Not as many tourists as I expected however that could be to do with the media. I imagine this would be a very touristy place but however for us it was incredible and defiantly recommend it.

We visited in 2013 and its way different now. They only allow 1500 people a day now and they let you wear a head piece to listen when you started going inside the cave.its more improved compared to our first visit. It's amazing always but im glad they get a way of preserving the place and it's beauty.

Great tour to do. The whole process takes a day to do but so worth it. You can take pictures without the use of a camera bag as the boat ride into the cave is calm.
