in a garden hammock while you sip some hibiscus flower tea at the Hibiscus Garden Inn on Abueg Rd. Bancao Bancao Jacana, Puerto Princesa. Truly an intriguing, affordable, clean, and charming place to relax, ran by a friendly staff, what else could you ask for?


your outdoor adventures by filling up at one of Puerto Princesa's many excellent restaurants. This choice was by far the hardest to make due to all the great dining options in the area, surely no one should ever have trouble finding good food here! We recommend the Kalui Restaurant on 369 Rizal Avenue due it's uniqueness, great food, and abundance of vegetarian options that in our opinion, sets it apart from the others. The ambiance here is something to be experienced, usually a reservation is needed, and sandals must come off, where am I?
