I posted an inquiry about Palawan earlier but didn't get a reply from anyone who actually live there. I'll try again, maybe I'll get lucky this time. Palawan is one of the three areas I've ID'd as possible retirement home for me. And I have narrowed it down to Puerto Princesa and immediate surrounding areas...maybe as far south as Aborlan.
I'd like to hear from any expat currently living in Palawan...or perhaps someone who used to live there and left to go elsewhere...for whatever reason. Local folks (Filipinos...including balik bayan.s) are of course welcome to chime in. I want to make it clear first....I have visited Palawan before, so I know a little bit about the place...but I'm far from being an expert.
So I'd like to hear from those folks about the weather patterns in that region. I heard some parts of Palawan do not get typhoons that frequently ravages the other regions. Is this true? How about medical service? Let's assume I settle in Puerto P. I don't expect it to be as high quality as that of Manila...but at least adequate? I am a minimalist by nature so I can get by on very little as far as conveniences go and can easily live like the local folks there. I don't need a job to earn an income to survive as my pension will adequately cover my needs. I don't drink nor smoke....but am very sociable and make friends very easily and pretty much get along with everyone. Whatever experience you can share that might help me decide....both good and bad. Maraming salamat!
