Puerto Princesa

Have you ever been so tired because you’re just sitting there for several hours? Well I did! After a 7-hour drive from El Nido, we finally arrived in Puerto Princesa, Palawan last night. My aunt booked a Family room here at Deep Garden Forest. The room was very big and very cute because of the different sculptures and decorations.








 They have a beautiful winery





Today was our Puerto Princesa tour. We only have two destinations, the Ugong Rock Adventures and the Puerto Princesa Underground River.

UGONG ROCK ADVENTURE
It was called Ugong Rock because of the echoing sound of the rocks produce when tapping it. They offer a different kind of experience. We climbed up through steep rocks, pass through narrow passages and took lots and lots of pictures.










 I finished it! So tired. 

PUERTO PRINCESA UNDERGROUND RIVER
Also known as PPUG was known because it is one of the longest navigable underground rivers in the world. It also became popular when it got to the list of the 7 Wonders of The World. This breathtaking tour takes you on a canoe journey into the first 1.5 kilometers of the cave, where you will experience the beauty of Stalagmites and Stalactites, formed over thousands of years, as well seeing the Bat populations that inhabit the cave.
I had fun because our tour guide was so talkative and funny. He made sure that the tourists won’t get bored and will learn a lot from the tour and we did! Too bad that our camera died because I haven’t charged it last night so I just used my phone instead.

El Nido - Tour C

A lovely day, means a lovely tour. There are only 4 of us on the boat today. Me, my aunt, my uncle and a Spanish Guy. Me and my aunt is talking to him and we were like “Me, no habla Spanish” AHAHA!


FIRST STOP: HIDDEN BEACH
This place is very cool! The view was stupendous plus the heavy sun rays makes the water very refreshing and the place very wonderful!




SECOND STOP: STAR BEACH
The sand is great and the water is so clear! We like to have some snorkeling but it’s so hot, we’ll get burn. lol. We also had our lunch here! Yummy!


I'm helping them to prepare our lunch!

Me, Alberto, my uncle and my aunt are ready to eaaattt!!!

THRID STOP: MATINLOC SHRINE


I'm on the top of the world.

FOURTH STOP: SNORKELING
Idk what spot was that because our tour guide just added it to our tour because he said that we can’t go to the Secret Beach due to a high tide. Oh, we saw a sea turtle here which are incredibly awesome! Alberto, the Spanish guy, helped us on finding the turtle. He’s a very good swimmer by the way.

FIFTH STOP: HELICOPTER ISLAND

It was called Helicopter Island because of the rock formation that looked like a helicopter without a propeller OMG! I saw a lot of cute and colorful little fishes. My uncle said that he saw little sharks which are seen by other tourists too so I believed him. AHAHA!

El Nido - Tour B

To be honest, I enjoyed today’s tour than yesterday. Maybe because we already knew who we are with unlike yesterday and also the places are jaw dropping!


FIRST STOP: PINAGBUYATAN ISLAND
  



Can you see my sexy tummy? 

SECOND STOP: CATHEDRAL CAVE
This is a cave on the side of a limestone cliff. Our tour guide told us that it was called Cathedral Cave because the cave formation looks something like, uhm, idk what it’s called. The thing where you put the “saints” on the church. Well, yeah. HAHA!




THIRD STOP: CUDUGNON CAVE
This is the place where we will be having our lunch but while they’re cooking the foods, we can get to enter the cave! This was really fun and embarrassing. It was embarrassing because the cave had a small entering and I entered it smoothly with my chin up and I was so confident that I can simply go out but then my head hit the rock and a lot of people laughed at me, like, wtf?!? HAHA!





I found the hidden Mickey!

After entering the cave, we did some snorkeling! It’s so fun especially to me that can’t totally swim in the deep. I got to see a lot of different cute and colorful fishes, corals and it was totally cool like so cool!

FOURTH STOP: SNAKE ISLAND
This place is my favorite among all the Islands that we’ve been.  This Island is called Snake Island because of a long sand bar that looks like a snake from afar. On both sides of the sand bar are shallow swimming areas. The “S” was caused by the two opposing currents. An 8-minute hike to the top of the island leads to a view-deck. The view was totally superb. Very lovely.
