Half day and 1 night in Puerto Princesa

April 21, 2016

(Português no fim)

We only spent half a day in Puerto Princesa, one day more would have been nice... Not much more though, I don't think there's much to do there. Probably most people think that the underground river is in Perto Princesa, for example, but its actually a 1h30/2h drive away, in Sabang. We didn't see any beach either, you probably would need a boat or a tricycle. We stayed in Orange Mangrove, a clean and nice place, with the most friendly people!  Having no windows was the only negative aspect, but for just one night its ok. Actually we are starting to get used to places with no windows LOL.
We wondered around the baywalk park, we rented a bike for the kids and spend the afternoon running behind them. There's a lot of food stands and it's cool and relaxing, a good mix between locals and foreigners. We met a really nice Mexican women that ended at our table sharing beers and a dive master from Holland. We had an early morning flight from Puerto Princesa to Boracay, thats why we decided to leave one day early from Sabang and sleep in Puerto Princesa, I'm so glad we've done it! We loved it!

Our place / A nossa casa...
 Our jeepny journeys... There's always space for more people / As nossas viagens de jeepjy... Há sempre espaço para mais um!
Bay walk park... And very good parenting, kids giving us beer to drink LOL / Bay walk park... Ser bons pais e ter os miúdos a darem-nos cerveja à boca hahahahah
Só estivemos meio dia em Puerto Princesa, um dia mais teria sido ideal... Mas não mais, não parece haver grande coisa para fazer por lá. Provavelmente a maioria das pessoas pensa que o rio subterrâneo é em Puerto Princesa, por exemplo, mas está a 1h30/2h, em, Sabang. Não vimos nenhuma praia, deve ser preciso apanhar um barco ou um triciclo. Ficámos no Orange Mangrove, um sitio simpático e limpo. As pessoas eram muito simpáticas! Não ter janelas foi a única coisa negativa. Mas já nos começamos a habituar a casas sem janelas hahaha.
Andamos a passear pelo Bay Walk park, alugámos umas bicicleta para os miudos e passamos a tarde a correr a trás deles.  Há varias barraquinhas com comida, o ambiente é muito giro e relaxado, com uma boa mistura entre turistas e locais. Conhecemos uma mexicana muito simpática que acabou na nossa mesa a beber cervejas, e um dive master Holandês. Tinhamos um voo bem cedo no dia seguinte, por isso decidimos sair de Sabang um dia antes e passar a noite em Puerto Princesa, ainda bem que o fizemos. Adoramos!

  1. I love these photos!!! I almost feel as though I were there with you (haha, I wish!). And that is excellent parenting!!! I think I need to teach my children to do that, too. ;)

    1. LOL! The only problem is that they will probably start to drink beer sooner than they were supposed too... The talk about that being bad for you won't work! LOL

  2. Yo quiero un triciclo de esos! jejeje

    1. Es ideal... Los niños quieren tener uno cuando volvamos a Madrid jajajajaja
