This tour is a bit pricier than many others but definitely worth of every penny! Our boat was comfortable and cosy and the group size was only 8 people when the most crowded boats we saw fit over 20 passengers. The driver was very fast and the schedule was planned so that we were always at the places either before all the other boats or after them. We enjoyed the secret lagoon all alone and big lagoon with a handful of other people so everything was just peaceful and super beautiful! Snorkling spot was great too! I was quite worried of the lunch at the boat after reading about how common food poisonings are in El Nido, but we were just fine. Kayaking around the big lagoon was once in a lifetime experience! I would definitely recommend booking via Boutique and Artcafe!

We ate at the cafe several times and love the fact they serve fresh locally grown produce. Coffee is also good. Staff are attentive, well dressed and happy to help with questions when ordering. The owners are often present and it is great that they are active in keeping the island plastic free and support community projects. Their little bar on the beach is also a perfect spot to sit with a drink and watch the sunset. Arlene was our friendly waitress. We appreciated the help the booking office gave us when we had to book flights to return home early during the coronavirus outbreak. This was a stressful time for all but the staff remained calm and smiling and helped as much as they could.

Beautiful places and very nice staff! We had lunch in a “private” beach and the time we spent in every place was enough to enjoy it. Recommended

I am back in my hotel having just completed this tour today and LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THIS CREW. We're outside the Big Lagoon. I've just kayaked through it. It's the kind of beauty that inspires wonder with the universe. Really and truly worth it. So I've kayaked back to the entrance of the Big Lagoon and I'm chilling on the pambot (that's the name of the type of canoe with a gas engine and the beams on both sides) and decide that I'm going to jump into the water with my cell phone and waterproof case because, Instagram, amirite? Reader, when I tell you how obsessed I am with control, even I am surprised by my recklessness. It will surprise none of you that as soon as I hit the water, my phone (and my heart) sinks 12 meters to the bottom of the water. One of the crew members sees my plight and immediately throws on fins and a goggle to see if he can get it for me. After the first go, he is able to locate my phone but it's just slightly out of reach. He attempts it at least 5 more times. Meanwhile, another crew member kayaks across the way to recruit a professionally trained free diver to see if he can get it. He snags it in one breath and manages to pick up a pair of sunglasses for himself. TBD on whether my phone will turn on (it's still drying out). But even if the phone is a loss, I am confident that I can recover the data. And that would not have been possible without the crew on my tour today. I'm such a lucky bastard; anywhere else in the world the crew would've just shrugged their shoulders and said, "sorry, champ." Not in El Nido. And not with this tour operator. I'm so so grateful for these guys. I had such a fun time on the tour with them. Snorkeling was a particular highlight for me. If I can pay forward my gratitude by directing future guests to the Artcafe, I'll consider this essay-of-a-review worth it.
