It was just a dream to me when I was a child to visit one of the best tourist destinations in the Philippines. I told myself soon I will explore the beauty of Palawan, and I finally made it. Palawan is famous with their rock formations, white beaches, and lagoons. One of their destinations has been included in the 7 Wonders of the World. Also, one of the best destinations in Palawan is El Nido, 6 hours land travel from Puerto Prinsesa Palawan but there are flights directed to El Nido. The town of El Nido is very picturesque. Tour businesses, restaurants, and places to stay were just everywhere. It somehow really developed and urbanized.

What Tour/s should you take?
There are different tours in El Nido that you can try but if you're not staying there for a week you the most recommended tours are A and C. Locals are kind they will tell you the minimum fares and basic price of everything that you need.

INFO to take down notes:
1) It is not the same with other develop beaches that you can just flaunt your bikinis and trunks in the town, still the town is part of a conservative country, you can add some tops to if you're going to stroll the town proper.

2) ATM is available in the town proper there are hotels that has ATM machines that you can use. For Credit Card users there few establishment where you can pay through cards, but there are some where you can pay and transfer money online like Gcash, Paypal, Paymaya, WeChat.

3) The local government is also helping to preserved the beauty of El Nido by not allowing any tourist to bring and disposable materials while doing the tour (island hopping). Please help also and put your garbage in the designated trash bins.
