    MULTICABS

    by davidjo Written May 25, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    local transport

    Multicabs are small vehicles which can accommodate up to 12 passengers and run on set routes. Each multicab will have the destination on the side of the vehicle as well as on a board that you will see by the driver's window. The multicabs only drive shorter routes, probably not much more than 15 kilometers, and inside the vehicle there will be a fare list which you should find behind the driver's seat. The fares are regulated, and you can hop on/hop off wherever you like.

    VISIT CUYO ON WAY TO ILOILO

    by davidjo Written Apr 9, 2012

    There are normally 3 boats a week that leave Puerto Princesa for Iloilo in Panay, anf they all stop at Cuyo. The Milagrosa Line leaves PPC at 15.00 on Thursdays and Sundays, arriving in Cuyo at 7 am but it will not continue the journey to Iloilo until 5 pm which gives you time to explore Cuyo, which is well worth doing by the way. Cuyo is a small friendly village and you must climb the hill (mount Aguado) for a beautiful view of this island and surrounding islands.The Montenegro line departs PPC on Tuesday 18.00 arriving in Cuyo at 9am and continues it's journey at 16.00.

    WALK OUTSIDE THE AIRPORT

    by davidjo Written Mar 8, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you arrive at Puerto Princesa Airport and you don't have too much luggage avoid the trike drivers that are waiting for new arrivals as they intend to be a little expensive. Just walk 100 m to Rizal avenue and flag down a trike, it should be cheaper. The airport is very near the centre of town so you may be able to walk to your pension house.

    Just to inform everyone tricycle fares were increased this week from 8 pesos to 9 pesos per person. They can carry as many as 5 passengers and you can stop them anywhere, but if you want a special ride you must negotiate the price.

  • Honest tricycle driver

    by dsumugat Written Nov 21, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting around the city is easy with lots of tricycles around. Puerto Princesa has basically good, cemented road so taking tricycles in doing tours is pretty practical and comfortable.It is challenging though to find an honest driver. We were lucky to find one: Kuya Walter. He is one honest driver and I highly recommend him. You can contact him at this number (09269503674). He brought us to Iwahig Penal colony, city tour, and honda bay...

    Topstar Travel and Tours

    by stamporama Written Nov 11, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Topstar is one of the companies that provide professionally guided tours around the city, including Honda Bay island hopping and trips to the Underground River. They are reasonably priced, provide pick-up service from your hotel and tour packages include entrance fees, boat rides and lunch (for Honda Bay and Underground River trips).

    If you lack time and are unable to stay even a night in Puerto Princesa, it is possible albeit tiring to fly and tour the river and be back within a day. Just book the first flight from Manila, the last flight back to Manila, then arrange with Topstar to pick up your party of at least 8 persons from the airport, head straight to the river, then return you to the airport later in the day. This is something to consider if you've been or will also head to Boracay so you can skip Honda Bay.
