El Nido Adventure – 2012


Not everyone has the luxury of visiting El Nido. Aside from the monopoly of one airline service (will cost you 7-12k one way on average ticket sale), not everyone can endure the 5-6 hours of travel from Puerto Princesa to El Nido. Plus, the common notion is going there is expensive. Well, true… but my blog last 2010 proves that it can be cheap if you are wise enough on choosing accommodation, food, and tour… thus, this is the sole purpose of my blog, to make your journey easy… 🙂

On island hopping, the first thing you will do is to plan ahead based on your length of stay, budget, and weather.

Guimaras Islands


After wedding coverage the previous day, we decided to visit Guimaras. The island is known for its sweet mangoes. Actually, some considered it as the sweetest in the world.

How to go to Guimaras?

In Iloilo City, take a taxi to bring you to Ortiz Wharf. From there, you have to pay 13 pesos and the ferry will take you to Jordan Wharf in Guimaras. Travel time is approximately 15-20 minutes.

The Mangrove Tour


My trip to mangroves was prearranged by the local tourism in Manjuyod. I paid 1 thousand pesos.

Pathway to Sea

The scene was quite interesting at first.

But when I reached the end, I’m not sure if I was disappointed or just too curious that I expected to see angels singing hallelujah between the mangroves.

Mangroves

Well… maybe this is just not my cup of tea. I prefer water and sand than plants perhaps? For 1k pesos… I think it’s not worth it as oppose to some blogs that I’ve read. The scenery around might be enough to compensate though.
