Itinerary & Expenses – 7 Days in Palawan (El Nido, Puerto Princesa)

Like most of our other travels, we initially plan to go to just one place and end up going to other nearby areas. In this case, the nearby place isn’t so near. The 5-6 hours land travel from Puerto Princesa to El Nido was so worth it. We’ll definitely be back to Palawan!

Please feel free to pick and choose which portion of our itinerary you’d like to use. Do make sure that you allot enough leeway for travel times and delays.

Please note that the following are our major/necessary expenses. This does not include purchases like snacks, supplies, souvenirs, etc. Prices are on a per person basis (except accommodations) unless otherwise specified. You also may have noticed that some meals didn’t make it into this list. It’s hard keeping track of those, cause I eat a lot! Hahaha!
