For my 24th birthday I chose Palawan of all places I could go to celebrate it. Accompanied by codename Vic we spent 3 days and 2 nights there. Dos Palmas Resort and Spa is a one hour boat ride from Puerto Princesa's Lourdes Port. Only 100 guests are allowed on the island.

|the best birthday gift ever :)|
It was a perfect choice to celebrate the wonderful 24 years of my life. Accompanied by someone who makes me smile and loves my little and annoying antics. Though I wanted my family to be there and celebrate with me the conditions won't permit. One of my deepest wish during my birthday was for my Dad and I hope it will be granted.
Enough of the melodrama, if you want to book you can go directly to Dos Palmas website. Or for Day Tour packages I would recommend to book one at Wild Rock Travel and Tour, I have tried them twice and their services are superb.

There are also other activities you could try at Dos Palmas such as Biking, Kayaking, Snorkeling, Swimming and Scuba Diving. They have recreational area such as Tennis Court, Basket Ball Court and Pool Table. Sadly, we didn't try kayaking since we were hooked up with swimming in the sea and snorkeling.

|Hey there scuba mates|
Around Dos Palmas. I really enjoyed just walking under the sun. I don't care if get too tan :P, just love the salty and fresh air coming from the sea. The sound of the waves as it hits the shore. And the calming feeling of the big blue sea. The vastness of the sea makes you feel so small, it's as if reminding you that your one tiny grain walking and living on earth.
