Overall Guide : Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center The Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center is situated on National Road, Barangay Irawan, Puerto Princesa City and one needs about 30 to 40 minutes to reach this place from the city. The intention of... more this center is to protect the endangered species of crocodiles. There is a hospital for disabled and sick crocodiles. The materials procured from crocodile skin are put into proper use. There is also a mini-zoo where some of the endemic animals of Palawan can be seen. Cuyo Fort Cuyo Fort is situated in Poblacion, Cuyo in Palawan. It is regarded as a unique and most ancient fort in the Philippines. In the interior of this fort, one can view the singular Perpetual Adoration chapel in Palawan, the convent and the church. The construction of this fort was over in 1680 and is a naval structure of the early Spanish era. Tabon Museum Tabon Museum is situated in Quezon and is separated from Puerto Princesa City by almost 155 Kms. The National Museum of the Philippines supervises this museum.

Overall Guide : Beautiful, pristine islands untouched by commercialism. Island hopping and snorkeling is a must. Cheap but delicious foods all over urbanized Puerto Princesa. Clean, well-governed and organized place. Friendly people. It's great that their government decided to limit commercial development and... more expansion within the confines of the city proper of Puerto Princesa and leave the islands alone and untouched. If you're thinking of making a "bucket list", this SHOULD be in your list.

Overall Guide : Nice place but very expensive. El Nido should regulate transportation fare - tricycle and the food is very expensive. A P 40.00 veges is not worth.
Not to be missed El Nido , Honda Bay , Underground River
