It took us nearly three years, but we finally made it to Puerto Princesa in Palawan (along with some friends)! The Underground River was the main attraction and reason for our trip. So we decided to stay at the Sheridan which is near Underground River, but it is a two hour drive from the airport. The weather was not the best since there was a typhoon in the country, which meant we got some heavy rain. However, that didn’t stop us from having fun and doing everything that we wanted to do. We were able to stay for three nights and had a wonderful time.
Our flight was delayed in Manila, so to pass the time the kids shared the iPads.
Sheridan Resort had nice rooms and friendly staff, but the food wasn’t great…we discovered Daluyon Resort/restaurant nearby that had AMAZING food
The clouds were coming in, but we still stuck with our plan to do the Underground River

Other people waiting to board the boat for the Underground River asked to take photos with Matt.
On the boat ride to the Underground River we could see the “Sleeping Giant” in the mountain.
We made it to the Underground River…Blake stayed at the resort with a babysitter.
Our group is ready to enter the caves of the Underground River.
Bats and swallows were in the cave.
After a huge downpour, we all decided to go swimming. The kids really liked this trench and spent a good portion of their time here.
The dads did boogie boarding and had some pretty decent size waves.
After swimming we decided to do the zipline over the ocean. Mason was a bit scared and probably too young as well to ride by himself, so Tia went with him.
Kalani got to ride the zipline by herself and we bought the photo the company took of her.
We did a mangrove tour and saw 2 different snakes in the trees…and we got wet with another downpour.
We waited for the rain to stop and then used these umbrellas for the tour which came in handy since the rain started up again. Our three-year old friend had a nice nap towards the end of the tour.
Dinner buddies…this little three-year old LOVES Tia.
We went to Daluyon Resort for lunch and saw a monitor lizard. The kids were all very impressed.
The walk between the Sheridan and Daluyon was along a dirt road and the kids had a great time exploring.
Palawan 2015 was nice and we are so glad that we were able to be with friends.
