Not all it's cracked up to be....

So, if you read Lonely Planet, Puerto Princesa is some sort of an adventurer's paradise and the subterranean river is a "must-see." I was underwhelmed. You'll see more in the individual tips, but the bottom line is not that impressive.

El Nido and Coron have more attractions and ground transport between them and Puerto is slow and painful, so think carefully before you arrange your trip around this place, especially if you have limited time.
