Not all travelers is interested in history but in this place, its HISTORY and NATURE combined. Tabon Cave was discovered by Dr. Robert Fox with the Manunggul Jar, the Philippine's National Treasure and the Tabon Skull which is the earliest securely dated proof of human existence and that can only be found in the WORLD'S BEST ISLAND, PALAWAN.

If you are not into long travels to get to the destination and if you are not into historical tourism, this destination is not for you! Great that the long land travel is dissuading a lot of people, the caves is still intact and relatively free from human destruction. Things you need can be bought from convenience stores at a...

Only few people get a chance to go to these caves as it is quite far and tedious to travel from Puerto Princesa. We were able to go here because one of our relatives is from Quezon, Palawan, and they were the ones who arranged our boat and permits. Visitors need to get permits issued by the local tourism office.... More

For archeologic and historical buffs, this place is a must to see where the the first proven human occupation of the Philippines was found. A 3 hour van ride and 45 minute banca ride one way from Puerto Princesa to Quezon is needed to visit the Tabon site. It is maintained by the governernment, and the entrance fee is a... More

First, the most important things to know about the Tabon Caves: 1. There is a small museum (maybe 15 minutes worth of attractions) in Quezon but the more entertaining part is the actual caves. It literally has about 50 feet of exhibits. The admission is small, maybe 10-15 pesos, but the boat is considerably more. 2. If you go on... More
