    I went Solo to the Philippines, Palawan and other islands as well. I think everyone was younger than I but it did not make a difference. Everyone was cool. Big Lagoon was a great day. Met a beautiful woman from Morocco. Solo is the way to go.

    Special Place to enjoy
    Big Lagoon was amazing to experience and enjoy. The Lagoons is surrounded by rock features that looks like something from Jurassic Park. Water so blue you can't believe it's real, normally don't kayak but we did and it's not to be missed. A real highlight of our trip to Philippines.

Palawan is one of the best island here in the Philippines specially El Nido , I came here with my friends and we're happy to choose El Nido because on the first day we got here we planned to go for a tour and we picked Tour A and we're all amazed to this Island called Big Lagoon, I enjoyed kayaking and swimming here with my friends , The stones are amazingly beautiful and the sea water are clear and clean!

Kayak around the whole Big Lagoon and don't just stay in one place. Seeing the whole lagoon is a breathtaking sight.
