The Philippines never fail to attract tourists from all over the world. It is considered as haven of gorgeous beaches. El Nido, is one of the popular vacation destinations in the country which is located in the northern part of Palawan. In 2011, the Underground River in Palawan was nominated as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature and won the title the following year.
After receiving this worldwide recognition, Palawan has become a more coveted vacation spot for tourists.
Getting to El Nido Palawan
Recently, to get there it became easier for vacationers as there are different ways to choose from. One is to fly from Manila to Lio Airport El Nido via AirSWIFT, the only airline that offers that route. The flight, which starts at around $116 (Php6000), is considered the most convenient way to get to El Nido.
From Lio Airport, an airport personnel can help you get a “tricycle” (motorcycle with a sidecar) to drive you to town for around $4 or Php200. This would be a great option if you haven’t arranged for your hotel to pick you up.
A one-way trip that costs $116 may not sound great if you travel on a budget.
