Last August, my family and I went to El Nido, Palawan. It was one of the best beach getaways our family did. I finally understood why they call Palawan “umbrella” or shelter. It’s not crowded and you can literally have your own island. The white, serene beaches are very calming and relaxing.
Unlike popular belief, you can have a budget holiday in El Nido. There are lots of small hotels at Bacuit beach, El Nido. From there, you can hire boats to go for island hopping. The food there is fresh and cheap.
We stayed at La Salangane. They have a restaurant and the food was great.
Love it! Superbly loving it!!!!
do you have a rough estimate of how much you spent? esp hiring boats for island hopping 😉
thanks! great pics ha!
Thanks Baki 🙂 we paid 1,500 pesos for island hopping boat per day. We had the boat to ourselves. The fee was inclusive of lunch spread. For this trip, around 5,000 pesos per person was spent ( 3 nights inclusive of hotel, food, van from puerto princesa to el Nido)
5k including airfare i hope? 😛
Wow! Ang mura ng nagastos nyo Jore!!! Shux. Anyway, this travel blog is amazing! 😀 More travels! Hi Carol! 🙂
Thanks Joy! You should go there sometime. It’s really relaxing! Just imagine, reading a book in your own island 😉
