We all know how stressful planning a vacation during the peak season can be. Not only is it difficult to find accommodations that fit your budget, it is also hard to get slots for tours. This is especially true with a Puerto Princesa package that includes the underground river tour. To avoid these hassles, why not get a Puerto Princesa package during the off-peak season? Here are some benefits of visiting the city at this time.
Easier to Get Permits for the Puerto Princesa Underground River Tour
During the peak season, you’d see tourists and even travel agents lining up in front of the Puerto Princesa Underground River booking office as early as 5 in the morning just to get permits. Not everyone will be given permits due to the limited number of slots available. This is the main reason many Palawan travel agencies, like Hopping Buddies Travel & Tours, advise their clients to book their Puerto Princesa package ahead of time.
The situation is a lot different when it’s the off-peak season. You or your travel agent won’t have to line up for slots. While you still have to book your tour ahead of time, it is not as difficult to get permits as it is during the peak season.
You Don’t Have to Make Table Reservations to Some of the Most Famous Restaurants in the City
When people say Puerto Princesa, 2 restaurants always come to mind, Kinabuch and KaLui. These restaurants can be very busy during the peak season that you’d have to make reservations to make sure there’s a table available for you when you get there.
They say you’ve never been to Puerto Princesa if you didn’t visit Kinabuch and tried their famous Tamilok or KaLui for their fresh catch of the day. Dining at any of these restaurants during the off-peak season means eating in peace, as there’s only a few customers in the restaurant. You also won’t have to wait for a long time for you food to be served.
Smaller Group in Tours = Less Crowd
A Puerto Princesa package includes tours to the different tourist destinations in the city. If there’s a lot of people, let’s say, going to the underground river, you’d have to wait for a while before a boat is available for your group. During the peak season, we’ve heard stories from tourists who had to wait for a couple of hours before they were able to ride a boat that will take them inside the river.
Because there’s fewer people traveling during the off-peak season, you won’t have to wait for your turn for a long time. You might even have enough time to kill at the Sabang beach after the tour.
Avoid the crowd and have a fun vacation at Puerto Princesa during the off-peak season. Contact Hopping Buddies Travel & Tours for more information on our Puerto Princesa package.
