After a few days in the water, it was time to get back on our feet. From Cebu Ferry Port Pier 1, we took the Oceanjet Ferry to Tagbilaran. Normally it costs 600 pesos each, but we upgraded ourselves to Business Class and paid 800 peses each.

We chose not to take the Puerta Princesa route, since we didn’t want to waste … Continue reading Hello El Nido! 🙂
