The Rustic Inn, Palawan

In between the two retreats I organized over the past weeks in Bahay Kalipay, I was so very blessed to call The Rustic Inn my home in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. This eco and animal sanctuary is the home of my aunt, Diana Limjoco, who moved to the island in 2010. Just recently, her family started accepted guests wanting to experience Palawan uniquely.

Orchids everywhere!
Manong Jun will offer you your fresh coconut as a welcome drink
You'll find many different animals in the property because Tita Diana is drawn to animals especially when needing to save them from harm.

Hello, Musang
A Kingfisher landed on her HAIR one day and wouldn't leave!
Here are the two otters who she saved almost a year ago when humans accidentally killed their mother. The locals then brought these babies to her for saving. Since then, she has researched extensively for their care and provided a home for them within her property.

such sweet siblings! <3 td="">
I think this photo of my aunt perfectly describes how nurturing she is to her darling babies. Such a lovely shot!

a kid-friendly organic playground is pure love
