Other Options

  • Go to Port Barton and spend a night there. If the Magdalena has a scheduled trip during your visit, you can take the boat for P150 and join a tour from Port Barton which will then cost you P800/person. If you have a budget of at least P1000 per night, you’ll spend around P3600/person for this option. If you want more details about Port Barton, read our separate post: Port Barton Travel Guide.
  • Travel to El Nido and spend more time there. Many choose this route while exploring Palawan. You can read more about El Nido here: El Nido Travel Guide.
  • You can return to Poblacion and try to get on the last bus bound for Puerto Princesa City. If you take this route, you’ll have to skip Erawan Beach and will just have to visit San Vicente as a long and tiring day trip. After returning to Puerto Princesa, you can visit its attractions, which you can read in detail here: Puerto Princesa Travel Guide.
