TBT: El Nido Island Hopping Tours

Pin It

El Nido has always been on my bucket list. When Cebu Pacific started to offer a direct flight from Iloilo to Puerto Princesa last 2012, I grabbed the chance. Fortunately, I was able to fit the El Nido tours in our 6-day itinerary in Palawan. I have always thought it was very expensive to go there because it looked so luxurious. I didn't know there are affordable guest houses in El Nido, big thanks to the Internet!

From Puerto Princesa City, we took a bus going to El Nido. The trip was approximately 5 hours including one stop-over for lunch. We arrived at El Nido at around 4PM so we just strolled around after we found a guest house and settled our bags.

Our favorite hangout place near the beach was the Pukka Resto Bar. The bar has live band performing reggae songs that's perfect for a relaxing beach vibe.

El Nido Island Hopping Tours

There are four types of island hopping tours in El Nido and all have standard prices per person. However, I found out through my research online that you may also rent a boat for around 2000-3000 or higher for any of the tours offered. I forgot the exact prices on our 2-day tour but prices are negotiable with the boatmen. Renting a boat is cheaper if you are a group of 5 or more.
