Having lived in El Nido on and off since 2005, I have seen how the little town has grown over the years. When I was last back there this year, there are so many more accommodations available that I felt making a master list would be very useful. The El Nido Tourism council has come up with a map and this will be our guide. This list was compiled in September 2012. *updates are ongoing with the photos and details*

We will use these maps as guide:

Casa Buenavista, El Nido, Palawan

Palawan By November 11, 2012 Tags: , , , , , 4 Comments

What I like best about Casa Buenavista is that it is at the end of Rizal street, so it’s very accessible, and right by the beach! But it can also get really noisy because this is a very busy street and a very busy part of the beach too. Boats come and go all the time. It is right next door to Marber’s Restaurant and Aplaya Bar and Restaurant, which are both good places to eat and drink at.

Casa Buenavista itself is located on the second floor so one has to go up the stairs, to a balcony with a beautiful view, and in the reception area.

The Before-and-After El Nido Photo-documentation Project – Rizal Street

Life in El Nido, Palawan, Photography By October 9, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , 6 Comments

Many of the photos of Rizal Street that I have now are taken in 2012. In 2006, there wasn’t anything interesting much about this street that I did not take a lot of photos of it. Rizal Street is what visitors coming in from Puerto Princesa will take and see first when going into El Nido town.

Now, as development moves from the poblacion towards Corong-Corong, more and more lodging and pension houses are being built along this street.

I have this grand plan of blogging about ALL the accommodations in El Nido town, including the ones in Brgy. Caalan and Brgy. Corong-corong, but this will not materialize, I suppose. There are now so many of them, from low to high budget, that I just did not get the time to cover them all.

I did try to start with the ones on Rizal Street, beginning with Viewdeck Cottages, but that blog will have to wait.

On Rizal Street, coming in from Corong-corong, these are what you will see:
