We could see El Nido town from the distance, marking the end of our memorable trip. The quaint El Nido town with limestone cliffs as the backdrop.
My vote for the best merienda for the trip is this Suman with Latik!
The recommended tip is P500-P1,500 for the entire trip, which is shared among the entire crew.
The El Nido Port is quite busy, and you usually have to pass through the other boats.
Thanks to the Tao Philippines Expedition Crew led by Romy for the awesome 5 days and 4 nights from Coron to El Nido!
Touchdown, El Nido Town, where tricycles are waiting to bring you to your lodging for P20 special trip.
Our Melting Pot or OMP is the highly recommended backpackers place at P500/night for a shared room, and P600/night for a private room. It was fully booked.
I stayed at Biolina’s Guest House upon Romy’s recommendation.
P1,000/night for twin sharing beds with air-condition…
…and a nice, decent shower and toilet with hot water. 🙂
I was able to freshen up and make it just in time for the 5.00pm English Sunday mass at the St. Francis Assisi Parish in El Nido down.
After dinner, we all agreed to have an 8.00pm reunion at Sea Slugs.
The food was a bit expensive and not that good in comparison to what we had on our expedition.
Thank you to my travel buddies Dallas and Miranda from Wisconsin, Adrian and Raqui from New York, Rich from the UK, and Alex from Germany for an awesome Tao Expedition experience!
TAO PHILIPPINES Tao Expeditions has been described as ‘One of the most pioneering cultural eco-tourism projects in the Philippines’. It is a journey to the most remote region in Palawan to discover a tropical archipelago of hundreds of paradise islands, inaccessible to independent travelers through its remoteness and lack of tourist infrastructure.
