1. Decide what you really want to do most in Palawan. This way you will know which sites to visit and what tour package to choose. If it is diving you want, go to Coron. For island hopping, head to El Nido. If you want to visit the Underground River or visit the historical landmarks in Palawan, then choose to spend most of your time in Puerto Princesa.

2. Choose an accommodation in a convenient place. If you decide to go somewhere else that is not included with your travel agency’s tour package, you do not have to worry about getting transportation.

3. Find out everything you need to know about fees and permits before you go on a Trip to Palawan. You are looking forward to going to a particular site, only to find out that permits are necessary. While in some sites it is easy to get permits, there are places where you have to book in advance.
