Tours and activities in Palawan.

No amount of beautiful adjectives can really capture the beauty of Palawan. Its waters have all the possible shades of blue: azure, cerulean, and turquoise are just three of them. Its limestones portray yet beautiful, its rich and tragic history. Travelers joining one of the amazing tours here are charmed with the sheer beauty of it islands, secret coves, remote beaches, rich fauna and flora, and colorful marine creatures.

So far, El Nido, Coron, and Puerto Princesa bear the flagship of this long strip of an island that can remind you of your delicious bacon. Palawan is a sliver of an island that snakes through between South China Sea and Sulu Sea. In the map, it is the narrowest, longest part of the Philippines. Take a local private tour to enjoy the beauty of these areas

Since the popular parts of Palawan cluster up north; the rest, you could say, are uncharted territories. Even some Palaweños—the local themselves—have not explored the extremes of this island paradise. It is that raw, that virginal. And they know it should be kept that way.

Palaweños primarily speak Tagalog, but there are distinct dialects used by some such as Cuyunon, Agutaynon, and even Bisaya can be heard here. But perhaps what sets apart the Philippines from its Asian sisters is the local’s ability to communicate well. Filipinos can speak English with ease.
