There are some option to go to El-Nido, Sabang, Port barton, Taytay from Puerto Princesa bus terminal.
– bus : there are many kind of bus in palawan. I recommend Cherry bus for foreigner.
– shared van : It is easy to get shared van. Most of van with destination on signboard. Some of operator push many luggage and passengers into small van. Sometimes its not comfortable. But fare is affordable.
– private van : You can ask to arrange at hotels you stay or tour agency. Its quite comfortable but cost is not so affordable.
– taxi : taxi is coming from 2015 in Palawan. The number of taxi is still not many. You can take it at airport, robinson etc.. Most of taxi is operate only into city. Its impossible to go far destination like Sabang, El-Nido etc…
