I haven’t seen the place yet, but it’s definitely part of the long list of places in the Philippines that I wish to visit someday. I don’t need to obtain or hold Help Desk Specialist Jobs to achieve that. There are travel sites that offer discounted fares to groups or a family package and I need to avail that to get to Palawan. People rave about the beauty of Puerto Princesa and the amazing feature of its Underground River that directly flows into the South China Sea. I’d really love to see Puerto Princesa right now.

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is located about 50 km north of the city of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. It features a limestone karst mountain landscape with an 8.2 km. navigable underground river. A distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. It includes major formations of stalactites and stalagmites, and several large chambers. The lower portion of the river is subject to tidal influences. The underground river is reputed to be the world’s longest. At the mouth of the cave, a clear lagoon is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water’s edge. Monkeys, large monitor lizards, and squirrels find their niche on the beach near the cave.
