Description

Spend 10 days exploring pristine lagoons and picturesque beaches with this multi-day tour package to Cebu, Puerto Princesa, Port Barton in San Vicente, and El Nido. Cebu and Palawan are known as two of the top beach destinations in the country, so this is a perfect trip for those craving a tropical getaway. This Philippine vacation package is also inclusive of comfort-level accommodations, roundtrip flights (Manila -  Cebu - Puerto Princesa, El Nido - Manila), roundtrip land transfers, daily breakfast, and five tours. 

Your Philippine vacation starts when you arrive at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, where a driver will fetch you and take you to your assigned hotel. The day after, you’ll catch your flight to Cebu. You’ll then be escorted to your new accommodations in Moalboal after landing at the airport. On day 3, you’ll go on a tour around Moalboal, which will let you witness the famous sardine run and visit Pescador Island and Turtle Bay. 

Then, on the following morning, you’ll go on a whale shark-watching tour in Oslob. While there is a big chance you'll spot these creatures, sightings are not guaranteed. This tour also includes visits to Sumilon Sandbar and Tumalog Falls. For the fifth day of your trip, you’ll check out of your Moalboal hotel and fly to Puerto Princesa for the Palawan leg of your vacation. The next day, you’ll go on a shared tour of the Puerto Princesa Underground River, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before checking in at your new accommodations in San Vicente. 

For your full day in San Vicente, you can choose to go on one of four island-hopping tours. Then, on day 8, you’ll head to El Nido via land transfer for the last portion of your trip. After settling at your hotel here, you’ll set out on an island-hopping tour to the popular Big Lagoon and other nearby spots.
