What you are waiting for is the 1 hour you spend inside the caves. Very nice, but it doesn't get more touristy than this. We got picked up from the hotel at 7:00am and visited the cave at around 15:00pm, which was disappointing because you only spend 1 hour in the cave, the other time you are waiting to go in, or for permits, or for other groups, or for boats.

Of course, inside the world wonder it is spectacular, one of a kind!

It's a collosal cave that you'd have to be rowed by a boatman for over a kilometer of amazing cave rock, stalactite and stalagmite formation! Our guide was very funny and very accomodating. The best experience in Palawan.

It was nice to be able to see this amazing sites but the road during the time we visited last 2007 is really a bad road... It's a long drive from PPS center to this underground river tour and when we arrived we waited like for an hour or 1 1/2 just to have our turn to go inside the cave.. It is very dark no lights and hard to see just one of the passengers will hold the flashlights but it was worth it to see the amazing natural structures inside!

I hope now they are able to fix the road and able to put some lights inside so it is easier for us to see what is inside!

Overall it is worth a long drive!
