Finally some free time to catch up with the blog! This post is about one of the best trips I have made in my life. Not only because of the place we visited but because of the people I went with: my sister, sister’s boyfriend (now her husband), and my brother came all the way from Spain to visit me in Seoul. After one week in Seoul, we decided to fly to the Philippines and visit El Nido.
From left to right, Javier, Ana and Curro in Manila.
Although its islands are among the most beautiful in the world, the capital of the Philippines, Manila, is quite an underdeveloped capital, with much poverty and not so many nice places. Fort Wayne is one of its few tourist attractions.
The plane that would take us from Manila to El Nido. It is operated by Seair and can only fit around 15 passengers. There are only 2 (or 3) flights a day.
Doing the ckeck-in to El Nido.
This is the airport at El Nido. The best way to go from there to the resorts is by tuk-tuk. You will have to bargain the price with the drivers though.
El Nido is a very small town that lives mostly of tourists, fishing and agriculture.
Art Cafe’s main entrance. Art Cafe is the main meeting point for tourists in El Nido. There you can have a refreshment, a meal, or even book your flight back to Manila, like we did. There is also free wifi available.
Some of the views that you can enjoy in El Nido.
Diving is another activity that you should not miss if you have the chance to visit this place.
It is amazing how clear the water is here…
No Photoshop here. This is just how water looks in El Nido.
The Hidden Lagoon can be visited on one of the many organized trips around the nearby islands. Totally recommended.
Nothing like this beautiful sunset to say goodbye (or better, see you later) to this beautiful country 🙂
