Just a few years ago getting to Port Barton was almost impossible. Today, with a national highway and a new road through the jungle, it is a piece of cake (kind of). There is also a new road from Port Barton to San Vicente that gives easy land access to top destinations around Port Barton.
All means of transportation are relatively cheap. There are three competing airlines so if you monitor their promotions, you can fly to Puerto Princesa for as little as USD 30-40. Riding on a tricycle in Puerto ranges from as little as 10 Peso (1 person, Cathedral to Junction 1) to 100 Peso (2 people and baggage, Cathedral to San Jose Bus Terminal).
Safety on the road, like everywhere in Asia, is low. Drivers put a lot of rosaries on their back mirror and make the cross sign 3 times before driving but happily overtake on double solid line at 120 km per hour. Stray dogs and proud turkeys cause a lot of hazard when they decide that the highway is the best place to stroll at the dusk.
