The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is located about 50 kilometers north of the city of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. The National Park is located in the Saint Paul Mountain Range on the northern coast of the island. It is bordered by St. Paul Bay to the north and the Babuyan River to the east. The City Government of Puerto Princesa has managed the National Park since 1992.

Rizalina “Dayan” Seachon-Lanete and her sons — Congressman Scott Davies Lanete (3rd District) and Mayor Joshur Judd Lanete II of Placer town — are tapping the best minds and resources overseas to help them change the political and social landscape of the distressed Bicolandia province.
