Looking for the most stunning natural getaway for your vacations? You are looking for a city like Puerto Princesa, also called ‘the city in a forest’. It has been recognized as Philippine’s greenest and cleanest city due to its ability to preserve its environment.
The highlighting aspect of Puerto Princesa is simply the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River. It is also recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The river is also famous as it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and perhaps the longest underground river. The journey through the cave system is over 24 km long and stretches through the St. Paul Underground River Cave and then out to the Southern China Sea.
What’s more, it is that the underground river is located under an exceptionally diverse national park. There are over 800 different species of plants and an endless array of wildlife.
Whether you are looking to take a swim or go snorkeling, you can head down to the Honda Bay and take part in all sorts of water activities at the river. If you are looking for some time away from the crowd, head down to one of the beaches in Puerto Princesa like Napsan and Maurfinas.
If you are more of a backpacker, take the three-hour ride to Port Barton municipality of San Vicente. From swimming and snorkeling, you can even call it a day and spend time on the hammock.
