Nearby attractions

Tamilok (Woodworm in Vinegar and Lime Juice)
Attraction
0.54 km away

A trip to Puerto Princesa wouldn't be complete without tasting the Tamilok. This worm-looking creature is actually a mollusk that thrives on rotten mangrove wood. It is usually eaten as a ceviche—soaked fresh in vinegar and lime juice. Those with stronger stomachs can opt to eat it raw, however. It can also be grilled or dipped in batter and deep-fried. Its texture can be described as soft, slimy, and very chewy. Most restaurants have this in their menu, but for travelers who want it newly harvested, the people behind the Mangrove Paddleboat Tour can find one for you. Just let them know a day in advance.

Cashew Nuts
Attraction
0.54 km away

These delicious, hearty nuts can be found in either roasted, salted, or chili flavor in the local market and souvenir shops. You can get a glimpse on how these are manually produced in the backyard of humble and cheerful women in Barangay San Jose. The best time to buy cashews are when they are in season, between May and June.

Palawan Heritage Center
Attraction
0.91 km away

This is an interactive museum where visitors are given guided tours about the rich culture, heritage, and biodiversity of Palawan. The museum is approximately the size of a basketball court, whose sections highlight local fine arts, hologram and dioramas of indigenous tribes, and essential archaeological finds in the Palawan archipelago. The tour begins with a short video of existing cavemen isolated in the mountains. The rest of the tour puts the spotlight on the Tabon skull cap, the Manunggul Jar, the Tagbanua Tribe, and the South Sea Pearl, as Palawan is known as the best producer of that highly precious pearl.
