The Underground River was the best tourist spot I visited here in Palawan. As a resident of Palawan, I got to see at a discounted rate! I went to the River without any prior knowledge on it. Lucky for me, the tour was educational and I learned a lot! I learned that the River is a world heritage site and that it’s full of rock formations. The whole tour was fun, and having friends along made it more memorable. There were a lot of negative comments about the place and the tour. They say it’s overcrowded, the waiting times are too long, it’s overrated, but for me, it was the best. I’d recommend it to friends and family so they’ll see the beauty of the Underground River themselves. I hope its beauty will be preserved so I can bring my children there in my next visit.
