A few weeks ago, Puerto Princesa celebrated the Feast of the Forest, or what they locally call as “Pista Y Ang Cagueban”. To celebrate the festival’s 21st year, about 2 million trees were planted by over 60 thousand participants coming from different places in the country. With projects such as these, the city is bound to continue being the number 1 destination for ecotourism in the country. A lot of tourists are still expected to get a Puerto Princesa package even during the off-peak season.
So, you may be wondering, what’s in store for you when you get a Puerto Princesa package and visit the city in the forest?
Before we dwell on the awesome Puerto Princesa tourist spots that you’ll visit during your trip to Palawan, you’ll be happy to know that Puerto Princesa has been noted to be a zero carbon city, with over 60% of its land area covered in trees. This means you’ll get fresh air on your vacation – a great step up compared to the polluted air in the metro.
Now, onto the best part… Here are some of the most popular tourist spots you’ll visit when you book a Puerto Princesa package.
Puerto Princesa Underground River
Being the most popular tourist destination in Puerto Princesa, St. Paul Subterranean River National Park, should be on top of any tourist’s list of places to go to.
A Puerto Princesa package with an underground river tour also includes a buffet picnic lunch at Sabang beach, where you’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy the beautiful white sand beach.
A Honda Bay tour offers an unparalleled experience of Palawan’s diverse marine life. The tour includes visiting various snorkeling sites like the famous Pambato Reef. You will also get to see an island that sinks and rises with the tide. The island is called Luli island, which is a short term for lulubog-lilitaw.
You can get this tour with a Puerto Princesa package offered by Hopping Buddies Travel & Tours.
Palawan Crocodile Farm
The farm houses Saltwater Crocodile and Philippine Fresh Water Crocodile, two of the endangered crocodile species in the country. The facility is also home to many of Palawan’s native animals like the Talking Mynah, Palawan Peacock Pheasant and Palawan Bear Cat.
This destination is included in a Puerto Princesa City tour package from Hopping Buddies Travel & Tours.
Puerto Princesa Butterfly Garden
In this garden, you will find beautiful species of butterfly that are similar to those found in Malaysia and other countries in the Southeast Asian Region.
Hopping Buddies Travel & Tours offers an alternative trip to the Binuatan Weaving Center if you are not interested to see the butterfly garden. All you have to do is to inform the agency of your preference when booking a Puerto Princesa package.
