Puerto Princesa: Underground River and Firefly Watching Tour

1. Puerto Princesa: Underground River and Firefly Watching Tour

Begin the day with hotel pickup from downtown Puerto Princesa or the airport and head to Sabang Wharf, arriving around 8:00 AM. Board a pump boat and cruise into the mouth of the cave, home to monitor lizards, monkeys, snakes, and other wildlife, some of which is exclusive to Palawan. Following a short walk, ride a paddle boat to the Underground River and marvel at this unique natural wonder. Grab an audioguide and sail through the narrow waters, past stone walls with hundreds of years of history. Keep an out for interesting shapes and colors in the caves and on the walls. Upon return to the wharf, lunch will be served. Savor a feast of local cuisine and then set off on the optional excursions, either a zip-lining adventure or a peaceful mangrove paddle boat tour. Return to your hotel for some downtime before heading back out for the evening portion of the tour. Drive to an offsite restaurant for your dinner before heading on to a river located some 30 kilometers from the city center. Aside from the fireflies and the stars, you'll also see the water light up by the bioluminescent plankton. Following the tour of the estuary, return to the wharf and then to your hotel.

Puerto Princesa: Private Sunrise Trek at Mt. Magarwak

2. Puerto Princesa: Private Sunrise Trek at Mt. Magarwak

The day begins with pickup from your hotel in Puerto Princesa between 3:00 AM and 4:00 AM, then heads towards the base of Mt. Magarwak where adventure awaits. Arrive at the base, which is just on the outskirts of the city, and listen to a safety briefing about the trek. Once you’re ready, begin the ascent towards the summit, following your guide along the 300-meter mountain trail. As you trek through the mountain landscape, see native flora and fauna along the trail which is surrounded by luscious jungle. After around an hour of trekking, arrive at the summit and enjoy a well-deserved rest while your guide prepares a light breakfast. As you wait for the sun to rise, enjoy your breakfast accompanied by tea and coffee. From the summit, marvel at the transformation of the sky as it is illuminated with light and color when the sun rises. Soak up spectacular views across Honda Bay and watch the water glisten and glow in the sunlight. At the end of an unforgettable experience, begin the descent down the mountain at around 7:30 AM. Back at the base, hop in the van for the return trip to your hotel, or if you selected the optional add-ons visit Nagtabon Beach for a refreshing swim, or relax and unwind in a nearby hot spring.
