Puerto Princesa holidays

Puerto Princesa is a city in Palawan, an island in the west of the Philippines archipelago. With a population of just over 200,000, it is more low-key than other cities in the country and is known as the ‘Greenest city in the Philippines’. The city was founded in 1872 by Spanish colonialists exploring the island, and is still the commercial and cultural centre of Palawan today. Located in the centre of the island, and with good transport links and daily flights to Manila, Puerto Princesa is the main gateway to the beaches and natural attractions of Palawan.
