            Information and activities to plan your holiday in El Nido

            El Nido is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines, but often travelers ask about when to go and where to stay.

            We hope that this article will help you to plan an enjoyable trip to El Nido.

            When to go:

            El Nido can be visited all year round.


            High Season

            The most popular period is from November to early May.

            Christmas, New Year and Easter are the most important holidays in the Philippines and is the time that El Nido can be very crowded.

            If you’re travelling during high season it’s best to have accommodations pre-booked well in advance.


            Low Season

            Many travelers are worried about the weather in Palawan as there is nothing worse than having the holiday ruined by bad weather or typhoons.

            Good news is that El Nido is rarely in the direct path of the typhoons, however, you may expect some storms with heavy rain and strong wind if you travel between June and October. Storms may last for a few days

            Usually, when it comes to the rainy season, El Nido gets its rainfall in short sharp showers in the late afternoon or early morning.


            Bad Weather

            Adverse weather can delay or prevent travelers going on island hopping tours or taking a ferry.

            Keep in mind that all tour operators in El Nido and Ferry Companies do not take any responsibility and are not liable for any extra expenses due to the bad weather.

            If you travel during the wet season it’s always a good idea to purchase a travel insurance.

            Most travel insurance policies have cover for being unable to make your trip if it were reasons beyond your control, such as adverse weather conditions.

            Where to stay

            There are many different types of accommodation in El Nido ranging from budget guestrooms to luxury beach resorts. Most hotels are located on the mainland between El Nido downtown and the nearby beaches.

            The hotels on the mainland are perfect if you want to go island hopping and explore some of the most amazing beaches such as Duli Beach and Nacapan Beach.

            The most exclusive hotels are on the islands of Bacuit Bay. They are perfect if you want to enjoy a relaxed vacation in one of the most stunning locations in Palawan.

            However, keep in mind that the prices of these hotels are quite high, compared to hotels on the mainland, starting from PHP 20,000 per room /night.

            There aren’t any budget hotels on the islands.


            Luxury: Lagen Island Resort

            Perhaps it’s the most exclusive resort of Bacuit Bay located on the secluded Lagen Island. The resort has a total of 51 rooms that evoke charm and quiet luxury.

            There are Water Cottages built on stilts above the water, and Beachfront Cottages with a panoramic view of the cove.


            Mid-Range: Casa Kalaw Resort

            Casa Kalaw is a boutique resort conveniently located along the Lio Beach, few minute-drive from El Nido airport.  Casa Kalaw is a Filipino-inspired hotel which provides warmth, comfort and convenience for getaways and intimate gatherings.

            Join a group tour or take a private boat?

            A private boat is recommended for exploring Bacuit Bay.  You will have the flexibility to customize your itinerary, pace, and start time.

            On the other hand, join-in Tours are cheaper but you will have to follow the group’s timetable and long waiting time before departing.
