The Apartments at El Nido (AptElNido for short) is an apartment complex located at the center of El Nido town with 10 well appointed apartments, a total capacity of 48 people and 3+ designated speed boats for island hopping.
This is the best experience for the family where you feel like a local living in your own apartment in town. The best part is that you have a private speed boat service to take you around the islands, minus the tourists, and the #AptElNido team creating the best island picnic experience for your family.
Highly recommended! Here’s our The Apartments at El Nido experience…

Search any travel blog for the best countries to visit, and we’re sure that Japan will rank high on any list. The country has become a favorite stop for professional travelers and everyday tourists alike. Top 10 list after Top 10 list highlight just how fun and amazing Japan can be.
We here at Our Awesome Planet make no exception to this informal rule as we frequent Japan whenever the opportunity arises. We’ve had the pleasure to cover most of the island archipelago in every season. And while Japan is great to visit all year round, Team Boom and Sean find that the best time to go is definitely during the Autumn months (September, October, November) when the climate is perfect, not being too hot nor too cold.
We suggest taking advantage of the cooler climate to visit some of Japan’s more rural areas and countryside. Central Japan has so much going on, and we rather enjoyed our trip, which we found was a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.

We celebrated our 17th Wedding Anniversary with the family with an intimate kaiseki meal.
