For our 1st Anniversary we decided to go to El Nido. It’s one of my dream places. Seeing images of El Nido made me stop and think if it was really that beautiful…
We were able to book a flight via Cebu Pacific Air for around 3,000 pesos roundtrip for the both of us. Not bad right?
Sharing with you our itinerary for the whole trip.
We arrived Puerto Princesa at around 10:30 am and was able to get a van (Lexxus shuttle) outside the airport going to El Nido. (650.00/person) The trip was scheduled to leave at 11:30 and took us aroundd 5-6 hours to get to El Nido. (including stopovers)
After checking in at Rovic’s Pension (1,700/night) We walked around and realized that El Nido is a very small town. You can actually visit all the places in one day.
We decided to eat dinner at Squido’s (Buffet at the mountain) Food was fairly okay for 250 per person, don’t expect much though, it’s not like Buffet 101, Vikings or the like. It’s kind of a buffet for a house party. 🙂
After that we went out for a few drinks. Then went to sleep.
Our 1st island hopping tour – TOUR A. Met new friends and had so much fun!
Big Lagoon, Small Lagoon, Simizu Island, and 7 Commandos Beach
P1200/person. Lunch, mask & snorkel, life vest and tour guide are included.
Tour started at around 8am and ended at 5pm. After the tour we passed by a few food stalls and saw the famous Belle Ile Crepes!! Of course we had to try it out! I got the Nutella! It was to die for!
We ate dinner by the beach at Bacuit Grill. Food and drinks were awesome! 🙂
Our 2nd island hopping tour – TOUR C.
Hidden Beach, Helicopter Island, Secret Beach, Matinloc Shrine. P1,400/person. Lunch, mask & snorkel, life vest and tour guide are included.
**we weren’t able to go to the Secret Beach since the waves were too strong.
Tour started at around 8am and ended at 5pm.
We ate dinner at the Art Cafe. Really yummy pizza!
Our trip back to Puerto Princesa. Grabe! We already knew there was a storm coming. Super great timing, it rained so hard this day. Good thing we were done with our tours, but I feel unfortunate for those whose tours got cancelled. Anyway, we left in the morning hoping to go around Puerto Princesa. But we were so tired and we thought of just buying passalubongs so we won’t have to the following day. We ate at Kinabuch – this is not to miss!
Is it really over?! That’s it 5 days. #sepanx but oh well. We’ll definitely go baaaaaack!!!
El Nido is a the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to. Now I do believe in Paradise.
