Best Time to Visit
Puerto Princesa is the best visited during the Balayong Festival (March 4), which celebrates the beautiful Palawan Cherry Blossoms. The most pleasant time to explore Puerto Princesa is during the dry season between December and May. It can get a little too hot between April and May, though, and rainy between June and November.
