At 6 in the morning, when we got up, it started to rain very hard, so we could not start pedaling until 11:30, when it finally stopped raining. Stage also very beautiful although much more solitary than the previous one, with almost nonexistent traffic. As well as in the last stage we crossed many villages and there was a lot of rural life, in this the human settlements are little abundant, although we also believe in some. We will pave a lot for sloping slopes (at least in November), although quite a few cyclops, except for a small section where the mud forced us to get off the bike. The stage is quite mountainous and, although the total accumulated unevenness is not very large, in a very sunny day, the heat can play a bad trick. However, we will always find shadows where to rest, as we will cross many kilometers of leafy tropical forests. We will find few road shops, in fact, Apurawan, which is more or less in the middle of the stage, is the only a little town, where we will find small shops-restaurant where we can get used, even in a very basic way . We were caught by a couple of storms that lasted for hours, more than we would have liked, and made us rocking well and they reminded us that in November it is still raining a lot of days, because until December, the rainy season ends in Palawan. Although it may seem annoying, wet is pedaling it quite well, as it appreciates the body cooling that this entails. At kilometer 15 the encircling of the track ends and then we find some sections in between also indicated, although most of the route is on the dirt track. About 8 km before Napsan, the track is again visible. We make night at the only accommodation in the village, the Bajero Inn, a simple but arranged accommodation where you sleep from 400 pesos per room (€ 6.6). We took a nice bungalow for € 700 (little more than € 11.5).

Platja de Berong

Berong is a simple and very rural town where we found a modest pension where to spend the night. It has a beautiful beach that did not look too much due to the gray sky.

Apurawan

Apurawan is the only little town between Berong and Napsan. Aside from a beautiful beach, we will find a shop-restaurant where we can get used, even if it is very basic. We caught a good storm.

The outskirts of the town of Apurawan gave us beautiful rural prints, although the rain again caught us completely and no longer left us until we came to Napsan

Riding the last little neck in the rain, which no longer left us almost until we reached Napsan. Luck that the strong heat of the island makes water more a gift than a martyr.
