Puerto Princesa Underground River is in the Subterranean River National Park located at the Sabang port. It is 80 kilometers north of the Puerto Princesa City Center; and definitely one of the stops you shouldn’t miss.

Tours at the cave usually start by using canoe that can take up to 9 passengers including the guide. Passengers will also use life jackets and hard hats. Once you get inside, the place is totally dark but there is a torchlight provided in the front seat. Most species you’ll see inside are bats and cave Swiftlets. As the guide navigates you through the cave, it is time for you to amaze and use your imagination as you see different rock formations everywhere in the cave. It is best to book your tour in advance if you want to visit the underground river. We booked ours through World Holiday Travel and Tours.
