Underground River, Bioluminescent Plankton, Fireflies, Zipline, Las Cabanas, in-depth exploration of Lagoons and beaches in El Nido, Palawan and Manila Shopping!
Our reasoning is simple – El Nido is a place of magical exploration and fun, it hardly makes sense for you to spend $$$ just to sit in an overwater bungalow and not partaking of any of the activities and attractions that El Nido has to offer. We would rather suggest that you spend your money on what counts (like El Nido Tour A for example).
Majority of the international travelers and tourists coming to the Philippines, will first land in Manila. Now Manila itself is simply a city, albeit a major and vast one, but if it is beaches and water sports and island adventures that you are after, your destination in the Philippines should be El Nido, located in Palawan. So, how do you get from Manila to El Nido?
If you haven’t heard about El Nido in Palawan, Philippines, then you truly have been living under a rock! This incredible destination has swept the travel world with constant waves and glimpses of Philippines hidden treasures. To break it down simply, ALL tour operators in El Nido offer 4 island hopping tours: Tour A, Tour B, Tour C and Tour D. This is a review of Tour A, which we did in El Nido on our very second day.
A short boat ride later, our Bangka set anchor at what looked like a tiny secluded beach. We looked back at our guide with surprised looks. What were we supposed to do? Where was the Secret Lagoon? He pointed to a rock on the left side of the boat, roughly 20 metres away. “Go. Swim.” That was all he said.
