How can I describe El Nido in one word? The word “awesome” is over rated. I think what fits best when you’re cruising the boat and you look around, one word will fit to your mind… “Breathtaking”.
And that is indeed literal in terms taking your breath away because you are being surrounded by the giant pillars that seem to have been shaped by the very fingers of God. The Rock Mountains remind me of the Pillars of the Kings from the Lord of the Rings. I guess that’s why they thought it would be a perfect place for the ending of the movie Bourne Legacy.
I just hope and pray that people won’t ruin the place as they did in commercializing some of the beautiful places in the Philippines. So far as of the time that we went and visit Palawan they were implementing this law that is about waste management. I think I remember that the first offence would cost you P500 and then P2000 and if you want to extend your stay in Palawan you might want to disobey that law for the third time and you’ll have a free accommodation in jail for 3 days, let’s just hope it’s not in Iwahig or you’ll get a bonus summer tattoo.
I would also love to give gratitude to all the residents in El Nido in supporting this campaign like these students who were marching along the beach while picking up trashes along the way.
One of my favourite place or Island that we hopped into is the Hidden beach, that’s the place where I found Nemo (Clownfish) and met him up-close and personal. It’s just sad that we only stayed on that place for a while because when you’re in El Nido there are so many things to do, so many places to go and so little time!
I also love the food, our guide is not just a tour guide, she’s also a lifeguard and a good cook, just see the pictures and needless to say anything. Well if only I could share the smell on-line, I would! But these foods are great set of meals when you’re enjoying this tropical Island and live a kingly life for a moment of your time.
El Nido is not a place like Boracay where you can enjoy night-life, bars and parties, though there are some bars on the streets as we roam around but unlike in Boracay, El Nido actually wants to preserve the natural look of the Island and its beach so thankfully they did not evade the beach with commercial structures… yet.
