    Awesome post! Hadn’t heard of El Nido…. Danielle’s looking into a long weekend in the Phillipines as a holiday from her stay in China. Is El Nido easy to get to & would four or five days be worth it?

      Hey Paz! 4-5 days in El Nido is perfect! She would fly into Manila, couple options for El Nido below.

      1) Fly to Puerto princessa ($50ish) and then take a 5hr bus to El Nido ($8).

      2) Fly straight to El Nido on ITI air ($100-150). Tricky little airline which has it’s own terminal, you need to book by emailing them, and take a shuttle/taxi after you arrive to Ninoy Airport. http://www.itiair.com

      Another option is Baler for amazing surf (beginner/intermediate). About 6-7hr bus north of Manila. We loved it there too. Check online to confirm the surf is right when she’s going.

        Perfect, thanks. We’ll hopefully get to El Nido another time when she and I are together and we have more time. Seems a little too much for her solo traveling plus it’s only a long weekend. Looking into Baler right now, also looking at Subic Bay which is ~2 hours from Manila. Where’d you stay in Baler?
