El Nido with Rainstorms, Dolphins & Glamping

In my last blog post, I wrote about my dream to visit Balabac. I explored the fantastic place in the Philippines, which includes 31 islands with stunning beaches, beautiful sandbars, and diverse marine life. But now, it was time to head to El Nido.

While travelling with friends in Balabac, I was in El Nido as a solo traveller. I took a bus from Puerto Princesa, and about 5 hours later, I arrived in El Nido Town Proper and checked in to my great hotel. I not only encountered heavy rainstorms but also spotted dolphins, turtles, sea snakes, and I even slept in a very luxurious camping tent.
