The sky was getting bright so we headed out. The plan was to find and join an island hopping tour, which was a pretty easy thing to do even if you’re there by yourself. In El Nido there are many island hopping tour operators and they all have standard prices for the packaged tours. If you’re in big groups it’s probably better to hire your own boat though, could be cheaper and you have the freedom to explore the islands, also to get away from the crowded spots frequented by the other tour groups.
We took the island hopping tours from the first friendly looking tour agent we saw near the pier/market, whom also recommended us a decent place nearby to stay for the night, called D’ Strong Tower Inn. The islands and rock formations in El Nido somehow reminds me of Halong Bay, and Raja Ampat islands.
So here’s the two days and one night El Nido journey in pictures.
