Additional Location Information
Fly from Manila to Puerto Princesa airport in Palawan:
Palawan is a one hour domestic flight from Manila airport. We find Cebu Pacific and Airphil Express to have the most competetive prices currently. Book as early as you can to get the cheapest prices for your flights. Our assistant in Puerto Princesa is happy to assist guests to arrange for the payment of domestic tickets, as most airlines won't accept telephone payments.
From Puerto Princesa to Port Barton:
The daily jeepney from Puerto Princessa to Port Barton leaves around 8.00 AM every day and costs only Php 300 per person whilst a good quality 4x4 airconditioned Shuttle Van can be organised for a direct trip from the airport to Port Barton for around Php 4500. We have an old 4X4 Pathfinder utility available for groups of 3 or 4 without aircon for Php 4000. The trip is 146 km, mainly on a good concrete road with little traffic. The last few kilometres of the Port Barton road is deteriorating again after recent repairs and a 4x4 van or truck is advised for the trip. The trip to Port Barton from Puerto Princesa is picturescue as it follows the east coast of Palawan and then weaves through the small villages that dot the countryside. You'll see a wide cross section of Filipno culture and life along the road. It's a 3 hour trip to Port Barton and Villa Marguerita.
Monkeys and native animals can be seen along the scenic route which travels north over Palawans beautiful mountains and beside its fantastic coastline.
