If you’re traveling to my beloved country 🇵🇭 El Nido Palawan should be on top of your list ☝️

✈️ Fly to Puerto Princesa City Airport from Manila or Cebu Via Cebu Pacific, AirAsia or Philippine Airlines or you can fly directly to El Nido using Air Juan or Sky Jet. Heaps of promo fares if you book ahead of time.

🚐 From PPS Airport ride a Van going to El Nido that’s 550 php approximately 5-6 hours of travel & El Nido to PPS 500 php. A lot of shared tour vans waiting outside the airport so no need to book in advance.

🏩 Heaps of cheap pension houses in El Nido, like Cliffside Cottages 600 php good for 2 pax non ac with private cr for 1 night & Faith Rica Pension 1800 php good for 4 pax ac with private cr. Both are located in the town proper.

🏝 For the island tours, there are 5 tours at the moment: Tour A 1300 php; Tour B 1200 php; Tour C 1300 php; Tour D 1200 php & Tour Z: 2500 php ( I recommend you go for Tour A & C if you’re just staying there for 3 days ) Tour Z is a new one composed of the private islands tour especially the virgin and undeveloped ones.

After the island tour have a great dinner along the beach. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from. Price ranges from 150 php to 500 php.


The following day do Tour A, still 5 places to visit and lunch is included in the package rate of 1300 php you can haggle by the way up to 1100 php per pax. 😉

👇 First stop: 7 Commandos

There’s a mini bar where you can order beers 🍺 mixed drinks 🍸 and even smoothies 🍧

After this beach, the next 4 destinations are Lagoons so you can do kayaking for 300 php good for 2 pax or 500 php good for 4 pax.

👇 Big Lagoon

👇 Small Lagoon

👇 Kayaking at Secret Lagoon

👇 Tour A Group, newfound friends 😘

Note: Please do tour C on your first day in el nido then tour A on the following day. Trust me Tour A is pretty much tiring. 😌


Side Trip! Never miss to climb Taraw Cliff.
Shoes for trekking is a must! This is not an ordinary trail. You’ll definitely be climbing 🧗‍♀️ at sharp rocks. Difficulty 9/10 but the view on the top will be worth it. 😍 Best done early in the morning to watch sunrise 🌅 and avoid too much heat from the ☀️  when climbing. Tour guide fee: 500 php per pax.

Also try the inland tour for 1500 php including lunch. You’ll be able to visit 3 white sand beaches: Las Cabañas, Lio Beach & sunset viewing at Nacpan Beach.

Also Nacpan Beach is a great spot for chillin’


Vacation won’t be complete without a night life! I recommend Sava Beach Club if
you want to chill or party! 💃 Must try Jägermeister Bum 🔥

Or a shisha session at Habibi Restaurant & Shisha Cafe 💨 


That’s it! What a beautiful island to get lost to! 🌴 Try eating Crocodile Sisig 😋 And buy pearls as gifts 🎁 or pasalubong  for your loved ones, trust me they’re selling legit!
