Puerto Princesa (Palawan) Nomads

Puerto Princessa

Puerto Princesa is the capital city of Palawan and is accessible by plane from Manila and Cebu, as well as overnight ferries from both major cities, as well as ferry from San Jose in Mindoro (to Coron). The Island of Palawan is the new ‘hot spot’ for Philippine tourism as most of its locations have been overlooked for years in favor of places like Boracay and Bohol.

Coron and El Nido are the most famous tourism spots located to the north of Puerto Princesa and they are post card picture types of places, however not really feasible to be a Digital Nomad unless you can do everything from your laptop and don’t need a major urban center at short notice.

Puerto Princesa is ok as an urban hub, however it is not really comparable to Manila or Cebu as it is very provincial and set up mainly for the port and local business needs. If you want to experience Palawan we recommend it more as a tourist location than a Digital Nomad location, unless of course you can work 100% remotely.
