La Salangane has rooms and a bar and restaurant in the heart of town, as well as an apartment/villa in Caalan. I have not been to La Salangane II in Caalan and the photos here are mostly of the bar and resto.

I have been in El Nido two months when I first walked into this restaurant. It was a bright and sunny afternoon and I was completing a photo walk around town. It was one of the last accommodations located on Serena St. that I was supposedly documenting, and it was nearly four in the afternoon. I walked in there, and met two very amiable men, a French and a Spaniard, and forgot to leave.

Amidst bottles of San Miguel Pale Pilsen and my cocktails, we talked about music, movies, cuisine, and travel all over the world.

The owners and staff at La Salangane know how to throw a party, which they usually do on Friday nights, mostly with the expat community in attendance. So, I would have to be honest and say that if you are not into parties, it is ill-advised to book a room here if your stay falls on a Friday night.

But if you are, there is music and lots of dancing, and the most clean fun you will ever get in this quiet little town (aside from Balay Tubay of course). Check out the photos here on their Facebook page.

On that low-season afternoon though, I found the place empty, with only the sound of the crashing waves.

The place underwent some renovation on the second week of September and I did not get to see how it looked after.

What I love about this place is their rum. I would actually come back to it again and again just for that. I have always been a rhum kind of girl.
