Heralded as the Philippines' last frontier, Palawan is paradise for soul-seekers, nature-lovers, and travellers who are looking for a one-of-a-kind getaway. Palawan's many tropical islands provide the ideal backdrop for anyone who wants to commune with nature, where sleeping in Palawan hotels guarantees the gentle sound of the waves and the cool sea breeze will lull you to sleep. The absence of commercialization and the locals' way of life which has protected Palawan's biodiversity and ecology, lures travellers to come and experience what the Palawan islands have to offer.
Puerto Princesa, Palawan's capital, is the starting point for many destinations around the region. Puerto Princesa is the most developed area of the region, and has just about every modern amenity needed, including shopping malls, restaurants, clinics, and Palawan hotels to choose from. However, it has still succeeded to keep intact a provincial, relaxing way of life. Puerto Princesa offers many types of accommodation in Palawan for every budget; Asturias Hotel has international-standard amenities with value for money, while Casa Linda Inn and Puerto Pension are some of the many others that provide affordable yet excellent Palawan accommodation.
From Puerto Princesa, one can choose to go to several other destinations. The sleepy town of El Nido is among the most popular, situated about 7 hours up north, for its virgin tropical Palawan beaches, mystical lagoons, majestic limestone formations, rich marine life and biodiversity, and extremely laid-back way of life. There are also a variety of El Nido hotels to choose from, including luxury Palawan resorts such as Miniloc and Lagen Resort, while rustic yet genuinely local establishments such as the Alternative are a favorite of backpackers.
Further up north is the island of Coron, located in the Busuanga province. Similarly to El Nido, Coron's diverse and exciting landscapes and laid-back environment make it ideal for those who want peace and quiet in an exotic destination. Apart from surrounding islands and white sand virgin beaches, Coron is especially known for stunning lakes and wreck diving. Coron hotels let you appreciate nature, as they use natural materials and are set in breathtaking settings. For budget travelers, Kokosnuss has backpacker accommodations while Sangat Island Dive Resort offers more upscale yet nature-friendly accommodations.
