General notes

During the off-peak season, cancellations of the trips are not at all uncommon. It is always better to rely on morning departures.

Most vans make a brief stop at a canteen halfway between Port Barton and Puerto Princesa for a toilet break.

Some parts of the road are still unpaved especially the road that stretches from Port Barton to the junction with the main road. As soon as you are done with this unpaved stretch, the rest of the road should be fine.
