Can someone clarify the situation with permits for the Underground river in Sabang for me please, as I'm reading conflicting reports. Put simply, what are my chances of turning up at the office in Sabang, and obtaining a permit for the following day or following days.? ( I'll be there 3/4/5 April) I'm staying at one of the resorts in Sabang, and although not a cheapskate, I do feel P 2,800 is a bit excessive, taking into consideration I could walk to the river from the resort, or that I could certainly buy a day trip including transport from PP for less than that.!! I'm happy to pay good money for a private tour, but this P2,800 is to join a general tour group on a boat from the pier at Sabang.....although it does include a Resort Lunch.....which is probably half the cost..!!!!!
So presuming I manage to obtain a permit, is it possible to just turn up at the river,and hire a boat/guide ??
Alternatively, are there agencies that book tours STARTING Sabang ( permit, entrance and guide) with no PP transport
