Palawan is an eco-tourism destination, located southwest from the Philippines' main island of Luzon. It's made up of 1,780 islands and islets, which make for wonderful exploring opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast that include hiking in dense rain forests, diving and snorkeling in sparking blue waters, and viewing wildlife that are endemic to the island. Much of the coastline is surrounded by coral reefs, making it ideal for divers and snorkelers.
