Palawan 3D2N Itinerary

3D2N trip to Palawan, possible?
Yes it is. Even going to EL Nido is possible. Really hectic though.

Assuming you will arrive between 9AM - 2PM, a good way to start your day will be a quick tour around the city. Baker's Hill, Butterfly garden are my fav destination (if you talk about priorities).

If you arrive later than that, I advice you to just negotiate with a tricycle to get you to Iwahig firefly watching(REMINDER: let them call Iwahig Firefly first to secure you a tour. You can contact them before arriving Palawan so they can arrange a reservation for you). Itll cost 700 per tricycle. 3-4 people in one vehicle.

Before heading to Iwahig, MAKE SURE to drop by the Bus terminal (if u take the bus) to reserve for the last trip for El Nido. (or van. Just ask around for information, help is everywhere)

Make sure too that you will get a reservation for the underground river for your 3rd day in Palawan.

You will probably arrive at El Nido the next day 4 AM in the morning. Since check in time for most(ALL) hotels in El Nido is 2 PM. Checking in before that will automatically cost you one night, so just find yourself a hotel later and decide to just hang around in the terminal or the town till 6 to 7 AM.All shops are still close, so keep it down and sleep on the beach.

You must then avail for a tour, and while your at it, reserve for a hotel to check in later just for showering purposes and then get urself some fresh bread at Midtown Bakery for breakfast ^^

After the tour around 5 PM, get a Van or Bus to take u back to Puerto Princesa for your underground river tour. You will be spending another night on a car. Yeah!

You could also just disregard going to the Underground River and just enjoy the night in El Nido. Just wake up early to catch a bus or van for ur trip back to Puerto Princessa. Do last minute shopping before you headback home.

If you would stay in Puerto Princesa, then this wouldn't be a problem. This will all depend on your flight details though. If you start your day early in Palawan, then you will be doing more. If, on the other hand, your flight is schedule in the afternoon, then you better brace youself.

I will be happy to answer any of your questions, if you have any.
