Puerto Princesa Part 4: Dos Palmas

Posted on: September 13, 2010

Day3 at Puerto Princesa was spent mostly on the island operated by those behind Dos Palmas.  The highlight of the day was the group’s snorkeling adventure and the feast that we had for lunch (If you noticed, this trip was just filled with food food food!).  By 3-ish in the afternoon, the group was on the way back to the Casa to recharge.  We were supposed to head out for dinner, but due to the mountains of food that we consumed at the Dos Palmas buffet, we decided to laze about in our rooms, eat junk food and spend the evening listening to music and playing Uno instead.

There’s really no better way to share this day to you than through the photos that we managed to take.  By the way, underwater photos were courtesy of The Boyfriend’s Lumix. Enjoy! 🙂
