How to Make the Most of Your Off Peak Palawan Trip the Cheapest Way (Tip No. 7)

Tip No. 7:  Find A Ride That Suits Your Budget

There are many options to get to El Nido.  From the airport, there are vans that will take you there straight after your flight.  If you're up to the 6 hour ride, then do it.  But please don't expect that you'll be able to catch up on sleep because the roads are winding and bumpy especially after the 2nd stopover.

Van Fare is only 500 php, but they may charge more at the airport.  Vans at the Terminal leaves every hour until about 6:30 pm.  If you're going on a later night trip, there's a non air-conditioned bus that leaves at 9:30 in the evening.

We decided to try Daytripper Palawan Van.  They charge 850 php for the ride that was available on the booking site.  I was expecting the huge van as what's mentioned on other blogsite, but it turned out that they have two types.  The 11 seater executive coach at 950 php and the 10 seater executive van, which is what we had.  Whats good is that there's only 4 of us sharing the ride and they don't take in passengers along the route. It also includes a free bottled water, banana chips and burp bags.
