Your Destinations

Take a journey to the Palawan Archipelago, considered "the last natural frontier of the Philippines".

Sparsely populated, it is home to the lush wilderness with unique biodiversity. Its beaches, lagoons and tropical forest are still incredibly well preserved. Its relaxed atmosphere surrounds you with an intense feeling of escaping everyday life, from arriving into the country, you will be amazed by the karst formations, emerald waters, the underground rivers and labyrinths of limestone. Open your eyes wide, you will only see this once in your life!
