I did not write about the trip chronologically. I was moving backward, writing about Puerto Princesa first, then Sabang, and, lastly, El Nido. The real sequence of events is found below:
Our six-day itinerary
The above itinerary can be squeezed into four tight days if you really want to. It's possible, just travel from Puerto Princesa to El Nido at night and from El Nido to Sabang early in the morning. And be really tired during the tours.
Since I am not an "Amazing Race" kind of person, I took it slow with nine friends, consumed six days, with a wallet that got thinner by the day.
Palawan on the pocket. Figures are all in Philippine pesos.
- Meals in restaurants in El Nido go from Php150 to Php250, based on the handful of restaurants whose menu I checked.
- Expenses shown do not include plane fare (to and from Cebu) and tips.
