- According to the staff of PPUR Office they now have an allotment of 100 slots solely for walk-in visitors. This makes the success of getting a permit through walk-in or do-it-yourself higher.
- If you’re planning to do the walk-in to get the PPUR permit it is best that you visit the PPUR Office as soon as you get to Puerto Princesa.
- There’s a higher probability of success if you schedule your visit to the PPUR on Monday to Thursday and avoid holidays.
I hope this helps when you visit the Underground River when you Do-It-Yourself.
These are the information I got from my recent visit to the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) Office at the City Coliseum. The details here may not be updated. It is better to contact the PPUR Office directly for the updated way on how you can get a permit.

- Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) Office is no longer located near Badjao Inn. They already moved to the City Coliseum.
- El Nido ETDF and Accommodation receipts from Port Barton are no longer honored. Staying overnight in Sabang is also no longer honored. The only way now to get a permit is to visit the PPUR Office at the City Coliseum.
