La Princesa has been serving tourists and excursionists since 2009. Tied up with various hotels, resorts and restaurants all over the country, La Princesa continues to make dream vacations come true, hassle-free and wallet - friendly. Owned and managed by the mother-daughter tandem, Ms. Francisca and Gemma, who were once tourists of the city and was captured by its beauty, La Princesa aims to showcase the splendid sights and people of the country with quality service at a price you deserve. Located at the heart of Palawan, our office not only serves the tourists of the island, but also the whole country. La Princesa is a one-stop travel locus not only for tourists, but also for divers, mountaineers, beach bums, gun enthusiasts, soul-searchers, thrill - seekers, wanderlusts, or even people who'd just want to get out of their boring routine and try something out-of-the-ordinary.
Nothing defines Palawan more than the water around it. With seascapes the equal of any in Southeast Asia, and wildlife terrestrial and aquatic, the Philippines’ most sparsely populated region is also the most beguiling. Because of its silhouette – a long sliver stretching 650km all the way to Borneo – there’s a certain liberating logic to travel here.
Centrally located Puerto Princesa (Puerto) is the culinary capital and primary gateway to nearby rural and oceanfront tranquillity. The majority of travellers go north to El Nido or Coron town, base camps for island-hopping, snorkelling and diving adventures in the Bacuit archipelago and Calamianes group.
The coastline serves as an alternative highway ferrying travellers in bangkas between fishing villages, tourist-friendly towns and a maze of uninhabited islands. In the south where the topography is more rugged, it’s possible to explore jungle-clad mountains though facilities are decidedly rustic.
