Off the Beaten Path Palawan: Liminangcong

This is the second time around in Palawan (Puerto Princesa-El Nido-Liminangcong) that happened last September 30 until October 13, 2015. But first, let me blog about Liminangcong as an off the beaten path I’ve ever done in my life.

How To Get To Liminangcong?

Liminangcong is a small town in Palawan. A friend of mine invited me to go there as she has now a family.

  • From El Nido, I took the bus and asked the driver to drop me at Cataban Crossing. Waiting for a van going to Liminangcong was not easy as there were people waited on the waiting shed. To make things easy for me, I hired a motorcycle for P500.
  • From Puerto Princesa, you need to go to the terminal. You can take a bus which is cheaper. A van is more expensive (around P450-P500) but convenient.

Arrived Safely in Liminangcong

Going to Liminangcong was not easy as the road was really difficult. I arrived there about an hour. Good thing I arrived safely. So happy to finally meet my friend’s family.

I brought my laptop with me so as a digital nomad I was able to work. On a Sunday, we decided to have an island hopping with the family. We were so lucky that we were able to borrow the boat without paying anything. I could say I was really lucky.

Getting Around Liminangcong

We rented a bike for an hour and we were able to roam around the town before going to the island hopping. We saw a little spring with a family enjoying the cold water.

Well, would you ever stay in this place?

We settled on this island for our lunch and this is a very cool place for snorkeling. I always have my snorkeling mask and gear with me. Too bad, I don’t have an underwater camera.

Few hours before I have to leave Liminangcong, I asked some friends if there was a waterfall nearby since we saw a spring. The family who enjoyed the spring told us about it so with friends, we went on a little hiking. The rain started to pour and my DSLR camera was at risk. Good thing, I was able to get some photos as if I was using a GoPro.

I would love to bring my friends here someday. We can buy food at the market and rent the boat. It’s a trip worth sharing with friends.
