Fastest Internet Service Provider? Cable Internet?  (8 Answers)

Not sure if this is travel related but I might have to stay in Puerto for a month and will need a really fast internet connection. Does anyone know of a company that offers the best/fastest connection in Puerto Princesa, Palawan? Is cable internet available? Our location is San Pedro, Socrates Road to be exact. Any suggestions or leads are appreciated. :)

Puerto Princesa - First Time Traveller  (7 Answers)

Hi, we booked a flight to Puerto Princesa and a hotel 0.5km away from the airport yesterday. Thru a blogger, I got in touch thru text with a local there asking for honda bay and the underground river trip. What else should we visit there? Please give me an idea on the local rates that are affordable, am travelling on a lean budget :)

My son and i will be there on December. We want to travel lite. What essentials should we bring? What should be our itinerary to make the most out of the 3 nights/4D stay? Though the first night maybe late already since our ETA is past 7pm already.

I want my son to enjoy this trip, he is only 13years old.

Hope this community can suggest the best.

Thank you.

It will be my first time to visit Palawan!

Are there taxis from the airport willing to leave the city proper? I will be staying at Sheridan. >

Also, are there tricycles?? We plan to eat at Badjao before going to Sheridan.

Or is it more convenient to hire a van? If you think this is better can you recommend a driver to me? And quote please. >_ I will need Airport > Badjao > Sheridan or just Badjao > Sheridan.

Thank you!

Day 4--city tour. We have already booked our hotel at Hotel Centro but have not made any booking on tours. Do we have to book ahead for Underground river tour and Dos Palmas Day trip?

Nice accomodation please  (5 Answers)

My husband & I are planning to visit PP this March. Which accomodation can you recommend? I was first interested in Niko's but hearing that it is too far away from the market or center of things (having to spend P300 for shuttle service back & forth) made me look at other nice possible places to stay. Hopefully it will have TV, hot showers & of course near good restos & areas to shop.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Royal Oberoi or Liberty Park Pension  (1 Answer)

Hi there.

Help lang po... my family is visiting PP this Nov 6-9 and we still don't have a place to stay.

We are torn between Royal Oberoi and Liberty Park Pension.

We like Royal Oberoi because they seem to have a good tour package. We will be paying 7,000++ per pax for a 4D/3N stay with full board meals and the usual City, Honda Bay and Underground River Tour. Plus they have a BIG pool which my sister and I totally love. But then it seems it is quite far from the city and going out at night will be too big a hassle.

On the other hand, we seem to also consider Liberty Park Pension because of the great reviews on their food. They also have a pool ata but not as big as the Royal Oberoi's. We still don't know how much is their package but judging from the rate they posted on their website, it kinds of fit our budget.

Which do you think is more worth it?

We just want a place near the city so we can maximize the place and is also worth our money... Thanks in advance... :)

Are there any options to fly from PP to Coron town?
