Yes, we can meet you in Sabang for the tour. The regular trips depart Sabang at around 9 AM.

Pack light! You’ll be out for about 6-8 hours and moving from vans to boats and back again so you don’t want to be carrying anything too bulky.

Corazon Travel & Tours

Corazon Travel and Tours sprung out of the budget hotel in Puerto Princesa, Corazon Tourist Inn, as the owners wanted to offer their customers better travel experiences than were on offer at the time (2014). (Corazon means “heart” in Spanish.)

The company was recently been recognised by the City Government of Puerto Princesa as one of the best travel agencies of 2017, and received Trip Advisors certification of excellence the following year, 2018. They also received a plaque of appreciation for their partnership with the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, as a travel agent that seeks to promote sustainable tourism and conservation of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Corazon Travel and Tours offer travellers the chance to experience many wonders of Palawan with their Puerto Princesa Underground River Trips and El Nido and Honda Bay Island Hopping Adventures. Their local guides are friendly and super knowledgeable about the areas that they take you to visit!
