The province is quite large and includes more than just the island of Palawan. The main resort areas are Puerto Princesa, where most classic beach resorts are, El Nido, the backpacker-friendly town that is home to island-hopping tours, and Coron, an island just to the north that's home to hot springs, lagoons and diving.

Alternate Philippines accommodation options
If you're in the Philippines for work, a stay in an apartment may be the right fit as prices are often equal, or less than, hotel stays and offer facilities like kitchens and, in many cases, swimming pools. We found hundreds of apartment options available on Airbnb starting as low as $15 per night.
With more than 7,000 islands to discover, taking to the water in the Philippines is one of the best ways to explore the country. For something a little different, you can even book boat accommodation, also on Airbnb.
