With our very nice bangkeros
Red and Green
Yay! I can’t believe I haven’t finished this post. It’s been months since our El Nido trip and I am still struggling to finish the last part. So before I visit another place again, let me finish this first. 🙂
For our second tour in El Nido, we chose Tour A which consists of the Big and Small Lagoons, Shimizu Island, Secret Lagoon and 7 Commados Beach. If you want more activities like snorkeling and kayaking, this is the tour for you. I think I spent most of my time during our tour just snorkeling and swimming my way to the different lagoons.
The weather was gloomy outside but we were determined to continue the tour. We were picked up again by a trike driver from Nothern Hope Tours. He dropped us at the booth near the pier where we waited for our bangkeros. They were the same guys who toured us the other day. Also, since the activities will be mostly underwater, we rented a gopro. We really wanted to capture the beauty of El Nido’s marine life so we decided to rent an underwater camera. After receiving the gopro and the instructions on how to use it, we sailed to the Big Lagoon.

Finally! After a month, I am able to blog about my recent trip in El Nido, Palawan. September went by really fast for me and it was one of the busiest months this year with all work stuff, travel and appointments. I won’t be saying so much in this post but instead let the photos do the talking (and I hope they do justice, too). So here it goes…. Continue reading

On to our final full day in Puerto Princesa.
We had the usual early morning breakfast at the rooftop of Jamp. Then we waited for our tour guide to pick us up. Our guide arrived at around 8 am, then we decided to go to the nearest store to buy snacks and drinks (with that I also meant booze. hehe).
Then we also went to the dive shop where we rented swimming gears like snorkels, swimming shoes and camera case (for underwater photos). After about an hour of traveling, we reached Honda Bay. We registered again at the tourism office then rode our boat.
Excited kahit puyat.

Group Photo muna!
We woke up early that day considering we had inuman session the night before. Yes, walang pinipiling lugar sa inuman. Haha! We had our breakfast at the rooftop of the hotel before packing our things and waiting for our tour guide.
Our guide fetched us at our guesthouse. Then before going to the Underground River, she asked us if we wanted to buy Off lotion first. She said that there were insects in the river so putting lotion would help protect our skin. After buying lotion, she gave us an option to head first to the Ugong Rock Formation. Since we were all up for adventure, we said yes and went there first.

Yehey! Kumpleto na kami.
Our flight left NAIA Terminal 3 at 6:55am. After 1 hour and 10 mins, we arrived Puerto Princesa Airport. There were many tourist who arrived with us considering that it was still the rainy season. After arriving at the airport, we went out to look for our free shuttle service to Jamp Pension house.

I really thought that the location of our guesthouse would be near the malls and restaurants. However, it was 30 mins away from the hustle and bustle of the main roads. Ruby got our guesthouse from a promo from Agoda. It was really cheap so we grabbed the sale. Anyway, it was still a relaxing place and the rooms were big enough so we just enjoyed whatever were offered to us. I paid Php1300 for a 3 nights stay at JAMP Pension House inclusive of breakfast.
