Manila International Airport
3 Hours Before Flight Time
Meet your hosts at the airport in Manila and be greeted with a name sign. Your own personal driver will then take you to your hotel, the famous Bayleaf Intramuros, where you’ll have the evening to relax and get ready for the fun ahead.
Manila is huge and fascinating. Your knowledgeable guide will pick you up at the hotel in a comfortable SUV in the morning for a complete and individual tour customized to your interests. Visit the old Spanish city of Intramuros with Fort Santiago, the San Augustin Church, and the Casa Manila Museum. Visit Chinatown, Escolta, and Quiapo Church. If time allows, see Luneta Park with Orchid Garden and the Manila Baywalk. There are endless sights to see in town! In a short time, your guide will enable you to get a broader impression of Manila. You’ll experience a cross-section from the past to the future from slums to the most modern neighborhoods with lifestyle apartments in Manila.
Pack up and say goodbye to Manila, heading to the airport to catch your flight to Sabang near Puerto Princesa on Palawan. You’ll arrive and drop your things in your hotel and head straight to the beach to soak up the sun. Spend the rest of your day relaxing, swimming in the crystal clear waters, or taking a long walk on the beach. Enjoy your evening with a candlelight dinner at your hotel or venture into town to find some local food.
Your full day in Sabang is completely up to you! Hop a boat tour to explore the island from the sea or opt to lay on the beach and enjoy the beautiful sun, sea, and sand. Head into town to meet the locals or rent a motorbike and go explore the jungles of the Philippines. Whatever you choose to do, your local guide is there to help you along. You can count on excellent recommendations for places to eat, things to see, and more. You’ll love relaxing and having fun on Palawan.
One of the biggest claims to fame of Palawan is its underground river. Head to Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park where your guide will take you through the park to see the island’s magnificent nature. The highlight will be taking a boat ride along a stretch of the 5-mile long underground river. You’ll put on helmets and life jackets and glide through the turquoise waters. Your guide will tell you all about the park’s geology and natural features and will take any questions you might have. After lunch, swim at the park and even enjoy the zip line!
From the middle of the island, you’ll head up the north to explore the legendary greens and blues of El Nido. Swim in both the Big Lagoon and the Small Lagoon where you can experience clear water as you’ve never seen it before. Take a boat out to Secret Lagoon and escape some of the larger crowds. If you want to beach it, head to Seven Commandos Beach or Nacpan Beach, two of the island’s most famous places to take a dip. Spend hours on the sand or taking long walks with the incredible rocky islands all around you. Whatever you do, make sure to do it outside in a swimsuit!
Take advantage of your free time in El Nido however you’d like. Rent a kayak or standup paddleboard and hit the sea to explore. Relax on the beach or at your stunning hotel. Go out for lunch in town and take a walk around. Hire a private boat and cruise through the gorgeous islands off the coast, stopping wherever you wish to get out and explore. Go snorkeling, freediving, or cliff jumping in the lagoons. The possibilities are truly endless! Your guide will be happy to recommend the perfect activities for you.
An El Nido Island Hopping Tour is what awaits you today! Get picked up in the morning by your local guide and head out on the water for a day of adventure! You’ll zip over water so blue you’ll doubt your own eyes and islands so picturesque you’ll think you’re in a movie. Your guide will take you to a number of the best spots in El Nido where you’ll have time to explore each one. Around midday, you’ll have an awesome picnic lunch either on the boat or your own secret beach in the lagoon. You’ll also have access to a mask and snorkel so you can pay a visit to all the fish of El Nido.
Spend one final day in El Nido catching up on anything you missed out on so far. Head to Matinloc or Shimizu Islands where you can experience the true meaning of paradise lost. Visit the Matinloc Shrine where you can see religious offerings. Venture into the Cudugnon Cave where you can have a fantastic and exciting adventure. Go for hikes around the area in search of the best panoramic views you could ever imagine. Or, hire a boat once again and set off into the sea with the pure intent of simply going where the wind takes you.
Spend one final morning in Manila where you’ll have time to walk the city one last time. Your guide will suggest places to go. When it’s time to catch your flight, you’ll be transferred back to the airport to head home, but not without memories of the gorgeous Philippines to last you a lifetime.
