How to get there


From your country:

From some countries neighbouring the Philippines you can fly directly to Puerto Princesa, Palawan with Philippines airlines.

For other countries you have to fly to Manila first (or Cebu city), then to Puerto Princesa (many flights, but 200km from Taytay), or El Nido airport in El Nido (Air Swift, little more expensive, 60km from Taytay Poblacion), or the new San Vicente airport (80km from Taytay)

From Philippines:

For domestic flights, you can fly directly to Puerto Princesa from Manila, Cebu, Iloilo, Davao, Clark airport, and probably Leyte now. You can also fly to Puerto Princesa, San Vicente or El Nido from anywhere with a stop in Manila or Cebu city. You can chose Philippines airline, Cebu Pacific airline, or Air Asia.

In Palawan:

From Puerto Princesa you take a Taxi (maybe 120 pesos), Jeepney (15 pesos), or Tricycle (more than 60 pesos) going to the Bus terminal close to new market in the north of the town. From there you take a bus or a van going to Taytay. Price should be around 350 pesos. Time, around 4h in a van.
From El Nido Airport you take a bus or van in El Nido terminal bus, going to Taytay. Price should be around 150 pesos. Time, around 1hour.
From San Vicente airport you take a bus or van going to Puerto Princesa in the terminal bus. You stop at the corner with the Puerto Princesa North road and you wait a bus/van going north. Price should be around 250 pesos. Time, around 2h30.

By boat:

Another option is by boat (2GO or Montenegro ferry) from Manila going to Puerto Princesa, with one stop in Coron (starting price around 1,500 pesos. Time, 36 hours).
Or go to Coron from Manila (update soon price and time), and then take a boat going to El Nido (Coron - El Nido about 800 to 1500 pesos, 4 to 6 hours). Then from El Nido you will take a bus or van going to Taytay.
There is also boats from San Jose in Mindoro going to Coron, then take another boat from Coron to El Nido or Puerto Princesa.
