This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads.
This is the view from my guesthouse in El Nido, the Philippines. Located on Palawan, a long slice of land reaching northward to Mindoro and southward toward Malaysian Borneo, and bordered by the South China Sea to the west and the Sulu Sea to the east. It’s also stunningly beautiful. El Nido was always a stop on the route for those heading to Palawan, but given that it was fairly isolated (when I visited in 2009 the only way there was via cargo ferry, private chartered flight – too expensive!, or bus on muddy roads), it was not as touristed as elsewhere in the country. That’s changing, so we thought we would provide some info for those looking to visit.
