    The underground river is definitely a must-see if you happen to pass by Palawan. It is gorgeous and very well taken care of. Didn't get the massage part. On the way back we stopped by a smaller local attraction where you can do some caving (its optional). I didn't do it because I got so sick from the van driving (which is the worst part of every tour in Palawan).
