Mitra's Ranch was our third stop during the City Tour. The place was was perfect for relaxation and a feel of the cool-Palawan breeze. You get to have a 180-degree view of the Sulu Sea and the rest of the island on top of the hill. Perfect for family day picnics and some peace and quiet. They have a pony for kids to enjoy while teens and adults can try the 3-stop Zipline. We didn't get to do the zipline since the rain was about to come in.. But Mitra's Ranch is a nice place to go back to someday for an afternoon picnic.

Another one of those short stops if you avail of the city tour. A ranch at Sta. Monica Heights better known as Mitra's Ranch. It was jampacked with people when we arrived. The cattle was on the far end of the ranch probably to avoid the visitors. :-) For a fee you can ride horses and take pictures. This year they installed not only one but three ziplines but it was never our cup of tea. Have not gotten over our fear of heights. Couldn't get a solo shot of the rest house as there were people everywhere posing, running, jumping… just typical tourists trying to find the best spot to get a snap shot as a souvenir to take home like we did. Hehe. Sadly, the house is no longer available for visitor viewing. Forgot to ask our guide why? hmmm. The sun was up, blue skies, white clouds, weather was perfect to showcase the panoramic view of Puerto Princesa and Honda Bay.

The ranch is owned by the family of the late Speaker of the House, Senator Ramon Mitra. I guess that's the main reason why this place is included in the tour. Best time to visit is not during peak season so you can enjoy being enveloped in the serenity and beauty of nature. Oh by the way, there's no entrance fee.

Nothing much to see in the actual place because you are only allowed to roam on the grounds. It's a massive infrastructure but the view of the mountain and forest is very pleasing to the eye.

Liked the vast land of the mitras, make me dream of my dad's farm at pampanga. Dreaming it will be developed as well.

Only nice view, have horse, and others. but honestly only the nice view, if you have time is good, but really you can live without this site.
