IMG_0014On our 4th day, we decided to visit Nacpan beach. We ask around and we were able to get the services of Charlie (real name? hehe) . I suggest directly negotiating with tricycle drivers around El Nido instead of tour operators.

Tricycle rental is just P1,000 but each tricycle can carry up to 4 passengers for only P1500. For larger group, you can rent a Van at a standard rate of 2,500 pesos for your almost whole day tour.

The trip took an hour. We enjoyed viewing the countryside!

If you prefer a quiet  stay at El Nido – Telesfora Beach Cottages is the perfect place to be with. It is located at Corong-Corong, 5 minutes away from town proper filled with people, locals and tourist alike – away from the buzzing sound at night.

From the town and back will only cost P10-P15 by trike. Not bad!

Where is the best place to spend your honeymoon? Diana had one place in mind… El Nido, Palawan! We headed to Puerto Princesa 2 days after our wedding last 4th of May 2013 (SDE c/o Aisle 1401).

Our accommodation was secured a few months ago but our itinerary wasn’t even done (never started to begin with!). We gathered as much information as we can via the World Wide Web only 3 hours before the flight. No itinerary? No problem!

IMG_9483

Our flight was around 4pm, from NAIA Terminal 3 via PAL express and we arrived at Puerto Princesa around 530pm. We were welcomed by dozens of tour agents, van rentals and tricycle drivers. We decided to speak with a tricycle driver and ask if were could we spend the night.  He offered us to bring us first to a van rental service that will schedule us a ride the following day to El Nido.

Fortwally Travel and Tours offered us to take their night trip going to El Nido, instead of spending the night at Puerto Princesa. I, then, called Chat of Telesfora Beach Cottages (El Nido) and she brought good news that we could check-in earlier that night. We will be staying at Telesfora through the remainder of our 3 night, 4 day trip.

Fortwally also arranged our tour for Day 1 and Day 2. Each tour starts at 9:00 AM and ends around 5:00 PM (varies).
