Every person in the Philippines knows El Nido which is famous for its beautiful beaches, nice hotels and good conditions for diving.
We also wanted to visit the place so we took the ferry from Coron and after 4 hours arrived to El Nido.
We booked La Salangane Caalan Beach Villa for 3 nights and paid 6 750 PHP without breakfasts. The place is very nice but far from the town center and quite hard to reach. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the stay.
As we arrived at the evening, the plan was to rent a motorbike for the next day and visit Nacpan Beach – the place recommended for everyone to visit. Unfortunately, the road leading directly to the beach is bumpy and a lot of people have motorbike accidents there. We also did :(
As we went back to the town and visited the clinic to clean the wounds, we ate the dinner in one of the restaurants with the proper WiFi connection – Art Cafe. Even though the prices are higher than in other places, the restaurant is affordable and we visited it couple of times.
The next day we went by tricycle to Las Cabanas Beach. The place is also very attractive with the beach bars and restaurants. What is more, there is the zip-line between two islands but because of our injuries we couldn’t use it.
Unfortunately, famous El Nido wasn’t kind for us. Despite the motorbike accident, we also had stomach problems.
But for sure the place is worth visitting and hopefully the next time will be better for us ;)
After 3 nights we took the plane and visited another Philippine island.
P.S. No avocados eaten!
