5D/5N Puerto Princesa-El Nido, Palawan DIY Itinerary

Going to some places you’ve never been before is really really fun and exciting. But remember to plan your trip ahead for you to avoid unnecessary expenses and headaches.  

Last month, our family went to Puerto Princesa & El Nido, Palawan. We had a lot of firsts there. First time to  book a flight, first time to ride a plane, first time to do a whole day island hopping and first time to do a bloody itinerary for this 5 days-5 nights Puerto Princesa-El Nido Palawan Trip.

Here’s our itinerary which actually took several revisions until we finalized. You may use it {or not} if applicable to your schedule. You can also check the links for each tour for more specific  details.
