I started off my photo walk on Rizal Street with Viewdeck Cottages, also called El Nido Viewdeck Inn, one of the newer accommodations in El Nido. It is one of the first b&b you will see, on the right side of the road, coming in to El Nido town from Corong-corong or Puerto Princesa.
The cottages are 40 meters up from the road, up the hill, so be prepared to climb a bit! Though if you are staying here and you have luggage, the staff will bring them up for you.
I was in for a surprise. The b&b is pretty! They were in the process of building of a reception area and a few more cottages when I came by. I chanced upon the owner, Rudy, supervising the construction and he was very kind to show me around and was also very pleasant to talk to. It was my first stop so I was raring to take photographs and the place is very photogenic.

El Nido Viewdeck Cottages is a bit far from all the action in town, so it is advisable for those who want peace and quiet, does not mind the distance – which is a tricycle away (Php10) or 5-10 minutes walk depending on inclinations, but would not be good for anyone who minds going up the stairs or wants to be right by the beach. They do have superb views!

I really loved those hammocks under the trees. Though of course you have to be prepared for anything and put mosquito repellent lotion on, just in case.
