getting out of mactan airport

when i visit a town/city for the first time, how to get to and out of that town's airport is often the top priority in my research list. i figured, it'd be a good idea to compile posts featuring the airports in the country. so far, i've written about the airports in puerto princesa, coron, and caticlan. this time, i'm featuring my very own mactan cebu international airport. i've been to this airport countless of times that it was easy to overlook writing a post about it.

the vetlongwalks' mark and the sandugo pair

I'm straight, but I don't embody a typical girl. I get more highs browsing at hardware stores than I do at women's department. Instead of wearing power heels and dainty sandals, you'll most like see me in my Sandugo rubber sandals. This post is actually a tale of my Sandugo rubber sandals. I'm writing about it because I'm amazed that even after almost seven years, this pair of sandals is still as functional as the first day I've worn it back in April 2006.

Please let me warn you that what you'll see here are actually just pictures of my feet, haha!^^

our trip to coron palawan august of last year was arranged by my sister and her friend. there were 9 of us in the trip and they thought it'd be better to avail of a packaged tour. so, after several considerations and inquiries, we availed of the tour through coron eco adventures. for a 4D/3N package, we paid PhP6,670 each (roughly $160), and the package had the following inclusions:

animal trippin'

i never had a pet growing up. unless, you count the time when my mother raised some pigs to help augment the family income when i was in grade school. then, i helped feed the one or two pigs we had with leftovers mixed with finely chopped "kangkong" and "tahop". anyway, i have nothing against animals, but i never developed certain fondness for them. curiously, in some of my travels, visiting a zoo seemed to become part of the itinerary.

palawan underground river tour

one of the highlights when visiting puerto princesa palawan is the underground river tour. the easiest and most convenient way to avail of the tour is through a travel operator. at least, that's the experience i had when i was there. of course, there is the option to DO-IT-YOURSELF, but i can't cover it here as i don't know how. the simplest explanation, hehe. for this, you have to allot one day in your itinerary. below is a run down of events that transpired during our tour.

how to get to el nido from puerto princesa

el nido is roughly 6 to 7 hours away from the capital of palawan - puerto princesa by land. while there are flights direct to el nido, the flights there are rather few and not to mention expensive. another option to get to this remote island paradise is by boat from coron. however, traveling by boat takes 8 hours. the third option, which is what i will discuss in this post is by land travel via puerto princesa.
if you didn't book a packaged tour, and will be traveling to el nido by public transportation, then read on for a quick how-to guide.
