The capital of Palawan, this clean and green city is a nature-lover's paradise home to a number of natural attractions including beautiful beaches and wildlife reserves. Home to a wide range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, Puerto Princesa offers everything from quaint lodges and full service resorts to guesthouses and high-end hotels ranging from 3 to 5 stars. A popular tourist destination, the region is also home to the amazing Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.
Renowned for its beautiful beaches, limestone cliffs and lush lagoons, El Nido is a coastal settlement on the island of Palawan offering a refreshing change to the usual tourist accommodation. With very few major hotel chains to disturb the peace of this spectacular holiday destination, El Nido accommodation offers a more traditional and relaxed approach. Most accommodation is positioned on the main road along the beach, parallel to the water, and offers options for all budgets.
Renowned for their gentle landscape, good hiking, lovely beaches and fantastic diving, Coron and Busuanga Island are popular holiday destinations in Palawan. With most of the accommodation concentrated in the main town of Coron, Busuanga Island is famous for its wreck diving, particularly the Japanese ships that wait beneath its waters. Coron on the other hand is best known for its Barracude and Kayangan lakes, home to thermoclines and giant barracudas.
