Tabon Caves, Palawan, Philippines

The best way to get to Tabon caves is by boat. In fact, it’s really the only way. I jump on a small wooden fishing vessel and we push off from the dock. In the distance, I can see our destination. It looks like an island covered in green forests. Deep blue water with just a hint of choppiness lies between us. The sails unfurl and we rush forward.

I chat with the Filipino captain, who speaks some basic English. In our conversation, I learn that it’s not actually an island we’re heading towards – it’s more of a peninsula. However, it’s attached to the mainland but by a dense mangrove forest that’s almost impossible to easily pass through. Hence the boat.
