San Vicente Palawan Strategic Location | San Vicente Palawan Master Plan
Updated: June 2017
San Vicente Palawan is eyed to be a practical and convenient gateway to El Nido
once the airport becomes operational. With many beautiful tourist attractions and exciting activities, being a practical & convenient entry point to El Nido also means that tourist will not allow missing the chance of experiencing San Vicente Palawan. As such, it is eyed to cater to a greater number of tourists than El Nido because it will also service tourist to the Underground River and its very own tourists.
While El Nido is serviced by smaller planes via a private airstrip, the airport in San Vicente is a public infrastructure designed to cater large commercial aircrafts which can
provide affordable air fares to passengers.
Land travel to El Nido from the City of Puerto Princesa, takes around 6 – 7 hours which can be significantly reduced to 2 – 3 hours if tourists will be coming from San Vicente. Currently, majority of the tourists of El Nido enter Palawan via Puerto Princesa Airport.
