Must see when in this part of Palawan. The ride from Puerto Princesa can be anywhere from 1.5-2 hrs depending on traffic (and it can get pretty bumpy).

Before you go on the boat with your group (we came on a tour organized via our hostel), you can select to do another activity like zip line. We opted out and just wanted to sit in the sun. This was the only part of the trip when we felt we were being solicited pretty intensely.

The boat ride to the UR is beautiful. Once you arrive, you’re stunned by the beach and then the water.

The audio guide is available in multiple languages and is informative when going through the caves.

Truly a spectacular view and worth the drive and the entry fee.

Stunning! Very much worth the day trip. Although the name is slightly misleading... just as easy to do the day trip from Port Barton as it is from Puerto Princessa

Is one of the top7 world wonder.
And the cave itself is amazing.
You will feel super natural when getting in and feel the real wonder from the Mother Nature.

We tossed up whether we should visit or not, as we’d heard it is super touristy and rushed, and my friend and I had seen plenty of impressive caves before. It didn’t feel particularly rushed to us though, despite being super touristy, and we were both quite impressed with it all. The river is amazing and feels like it goes on forever. The tours go 2km into the cave (which apparently continues on deep enough that oxygen runs out and people that explore it have to take an oxygen cylinder!). It takes about 2 hours from Puerto Princesa to get there. Had I done it knowing what I know now, I think I would have arranged accommodation either in the local town or taken my bag and been dropped off at the junction to port Barton afterwards before continuing up north.

The trip to underground river is worth money and time. Boat ride in the dark cave with audio guide and complete silence is just what you need after some crazy days in the city. This is a unique experience you won’t regret.
