A special surprise travel to puerto princesa for us since it was my parents’ Silver Wedding Anniversary. A blend of excitement and queasy feelings for a sweet-trip-treat for my family. Another gainsay to a sweet dad who has a colleague in Puerto Princesa to help him do all the preparations for the trip. Ecstatic. Off we go to Puerto Princesa!
We stayed in Puerto Pension Bed and Breakfast Inn located along Malvar St in Puerto Princesa. What’s nice about this Pension house is its great location. Settled in the heart of the City, my parents were delighted in going back and forth to the City Market to the Pension house. My parents also loved the nearby river park/bay where they trotted in the morning as if they were local residents. What is more, for a free breakfast, free airport transfers and a good deal of discount for the duration of our stay. I just love being near the city market for cashew nuts (roasted, fried, cashew brittle). It is really important to like the place you’re staying on holiday. Especially if the weather is bad! If you’re staying somewhere nice, you don’t mind as much if it rains. You can relax, playing bingo online, reading or just hanging out with friends and family. Puerto Pension Bed and Breakfast is the kind of place that puts you at ease and makes you feel at home.
Upon arrival at the airport, our tour guide Kuya Pepito greeted us with a big smile, he brought us to Badjao Seafront restaurant for our lunch, and then brought us to Honda Bay for island hopping. On the second day and third day, another tour guide Kuya Danny brought us around Puerto Pricesa. We’re blessed to meet him as he was very helpful and courteous, he’s the kind of guy that will show you the best places to buy from and just won’t allow us to not get the best out of our trip.
