i was amazed in the wonder of nature in this place, the place was kept sacred by the people who manages the area.It was a sacred place to the natives of Palawan.

As we visited the river during the height of the peakseason, it cannot be a surprise that it was crowded at the river. But the whole trip took 9 hours, and we sat in the boat for 40 minutes. Alright, there was a lunch and transfer from PP included but the waiting really ruined it for me. The underground river... More

It is beautiful, but super touristy. We stayed in Sabang and went early. I would recommend staying an extra day or two in Sabang, it is beautiful.

I attended the doctor's convention in Palawan with my siblings. So naturally, there were too many people and the lines were always long. But I think that's what FUN is all about,Being with friends and colleagues. The underground cave in the river is fantastic. It is awesome and overwhelming. The rock formations are fantastic. Definitely a must-go place.

A lot of tourist attractions call themselves 'special' but this one truly does live up to it's name. Due to a rare geological occurrence, the underground river is one of the few caves in the world that is partially navigable by boat. It seems that the geological activity is so rare that this river is truly one of a kind.... More

Don't get me wrong, the underground river is great but until Tourism Palawan fix up their services for tourist, it's best to go elsewhere. First of all, tour services there will pack you in a van with other tourists like a can of sardines. And for an hour and a half ride one way from PPS, we had to take... More

if you have the time on your side, and fancy a couple of days on a beautiful beach.... can highly recommend a stopover in Sabang..By doing this you beat the hoardes of busses that invade Sabang twice daily from Puerto Princesa. This is the civilised way to see the Underground River....at your leisure. We stayed at the Daluyon Beach and... More
