Finally backpacking El Nido, Palawan.

Its me all alone exploring the beauty of Palawan. El Nido is on the list of my buckets and before I’m on how I can make it happen. El Nido is not an expensive getaway. Promise… I did a lot research before my feet here. And to tell you, I only spend  Php 5,000.00 plus  for three days (excluding the fare).

Tour C Package composed of Snake Island , Matinloc Island , Secret Beach, Hidden Beach  and  Star Beach plus a free snokling in one of the island (forget the name) .

They say ito daw ang pinaka-maganda na tour package because of the presence of those 5 islands. Walang patapon sa El Nido, kahit doon ka lang sa beach watching the sunrise or sunset. Dito maganda mag-reflect on how life blest you with so much.

El Nido on the budget? Yes, you can eat in the carinderia along the town proper for  Php. 50.00 -70.00 per meal. Or if you save enough to eat the best of the best, go for restaurants in front of the beach, budget : Php. 200.00 – 500.00 per meal.

Since I am on a budget, I stayed in back packers hostel “   “ in the town proper. Just Php. 700.00 per night with just single bed, fan  and  a private rest room. They also have free coffee/ tea in the morning.

El Nido is generally safe. The locals are generally kind and helpful to the tourists and to anyone. You can walk around El Nido town at any time.
