Travel with us This 2019: Our 8-Day Palawan Trip

The Philippines is our favorite when traveling together because the country is full of immensely beautiful landscapes and seascapes. There is a way to travel for everyone in this country, and as we call Philippines our home, we decided to host an 8-day travel retreat where we can travel with 10 of you, and bring you to some of the most beautiful islands of the country.

It’s really quite hard not to be impressed with Palawan’s beauty, even if we’ve visited a few times now. We haven’t even flown our drone yet in the islands plus there’s so much more to visit that we ourselves can’t wait to go back.

In our 8 day Philippine travel in the end of 2019, we’ll explore together, take photos and videos together, get a chance to learn about the country and find out how you can use travel as a way to build your next travel working lifestyle.

What’s included in the trip:

  • All accommodations during the whole trip
  • All the inland and island hopping tours and transport during the whole trip together
  • All breakfasts for the whole trips, meals during the island hops, and 2-3 dinners (including the welcome dinner)
  • Required gears during island hops like the life vests and snorkeling masks

What’s not included:

  • Flights to and from the Philippines
  • Any meals and additional drinks not mentioned in the final inclusions of the trip
  • Additional kayaks and boat trips outside the included trips and tours
  • Travel insurance while traveling to the Philippines (required)

The following will be the itinerary in the 8-day Palawan trip in the Philippines:

8-day Palawan trip

1st Day: Puerto Princesa

Puerto Princesa is the capital of Palawan and we’ll meet here for a welcome dinner. We’ll be spending a week together so it’d be great for all of us to get acquainted and to relax as we prepare for the next days of swimming and island hops

2nd Day: Puerto Princesa

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, Underground river

We’ll do a day tour to the Underground River, a Unesco Site. It’s a two hour trip by van and we have to wake up early for the tour. After that, we’ll have time to reach Port Barton for sunset time

Sunsets in Port Barton are breathtaking and we’ll prepare to sleep in the island.

3rd day: Port Barton

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, Port Barton

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, Port Barton

We believe that the island hopping in Port Barton is some of the best in Palawan, and sometimes even better than El Nido! Snorkelling is the best here, and we’ve seen some of the bluest waters in Palawan here in Port Barton. We’ll have ample time to snorkel with turtles and fishes, and stop by white sandy beaches to get all the tanning you need!

4th day: Port Barton and El Nido

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, Port Barton

We’ll go to El Nido and catch the amazing sunset in Las Cabanas (Ziplining in Las Cabanas could be an option). Las Cabanas is one of the most popular places for sunset in El Nido so it’s a good place ot just relax, have a few drinks and just watch the beautiful sea scapes and enjoy the evening.

We’ll stay in El Nido for the night to prepare for next day’s island hops.

5th day: El Nido

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, El Nido

El Nido is very popular for its huge limestones, the lagoon trips, the very beautiful boat tours, and of course, some of the most amazing water and sea scapes so this is definitely one of the highlights of the trip. We’ll do a mix of the best island hops in El Nido and a possible party boat option while we’re doing the island hops. 

6th day: El Nido

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, El Nido

Apart from the popular El Nido island hopping, there are actually inland tours in El Nido and another beach that is very beautiful. We’ll visit Nacpan Beach, and do a few more island hops and other inland activities, plus we’ll experience some of the local life as we spend time together talking about blogging, travel life, the digital nomad lifestyle, and we’ll help you answer all your questions and decide if it’s for you or not!

7th day: El Nido and Coron

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, Coron

We’ll say goodbye to El Nido, and visit Coron first thing in the morning. We’ll visit the island for some beach and island hops, hike to Mount Tapyas for sunset, and visit the hot springs in the evening.

8th day: Coron

8-Day Travel Itinerary in Palawan, Coron

Diver exploring shipwreck underwater. Gunboat at Lusong Island

Coron’s underwater is one of the best with the shipwrecks for the free diving and other diving activities, the amazing underwater sea creatures, and of course the island hops. We’ll spend the whole day visiting Coron’s best and finish the trip with a goodbye dinner.

There you go! We are so excited to explore Palawan with you and if you have any questions, make sure you subscribe to our list here so you get all the additional details of the trip including prices, where we’ll stay, and all the other trip details.
