Rent a car in Puerto Princesa

I will arrive to Puerto Princesa next April with 5 persons in total. It is cheaper if i rent a car full day for Underground river tour and Honda Bay tour and arrange the tour by myself or I just book the tour for 5?. Any suggestion of car rental in Puerto Princesa and what is the approximate cost? Thanks

Hire a van (google "palawan travel services") and leave all the organisation such as Underground River Permits to them.

This is the City Website, I hope you find it helpful :- http://www.puertoprincesa.ph/index.php

I agree my suggestion on what to google was not perfect!

In you are looking for "self drive" then the answer is while not impossible to find, it can be so difficult that it's best to forget it.

This info from a post by "shmizzle" gives some info, and of course the place where you are staying will organise a van for you.

The tour is 1500 pesos per person. I understand that there is little variation in prices between tour companies. With the paid tour, you ride in a van, have a driver, and a tour guide whose responisbility includes making sure all of the people in the tour get to the proper places and to deal with the permits. The tour guide will organize the boat from the dock to the bay by the underground river and set you up in the queue to get on a boat into the underground river. In the tour, you will also get an included buffet lunch.

If you go on your own, you will have to deal with the permits and boats on your own.

I hope you enjoy the Underground River as much as I did.

Since you are 5 people, I suggests better to book to travel agency rather than renting a van,You can also ask discount for your tours..publish rate is 1500, you can ask for discount. Its worry free tour. Everything is included,including your permits,van transfer,boat,buffet lunch and it is also a guided tour tour guide will give you information during tours. No hassel. Underground River now is always fully book so better to book early for your slots. Hope it helps.
