Puerto Princesa to El Nido (Night Travel: June 2018, 11pm)

I have read plenty of similar scenarios that they opt to stay at puerto princesa at night, then travel to el nido by morning.

Our arrival time in the airport is 9:10pm, but knowing the philippines, we are expecting the flight to be delayed, thus our estimated time of arrival is 10-11pm

We are on a tight schedule, hence can someone recommend night transfers from PP airport to El Nido?

1. We plan to find a similar group that will arrive at night, then take a private shuttle so we won't shoulder 100% of the van rental.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated! :)

Thanks in advance!

The Roro and Cherry Bus are options at that time. Not sure if there will be shuttle buses at that time of night. Expect to be cramped and have speeding unsafe drivers if there is a shuttle.

Daytripper is the only shuttle company I would recommend but they dont travel at that hour.

I would prefer not to travel at night as that is a more unsafe time to travel.

I also heard of The Roro and Cherry Bus.

Do you happen to know how long does it take from Puerto Princesa Airport to their bus terminal?

I can't exactly recall. I think around 20 mins.

Yes, that time of night you will easily be at the bus terminal in 15 minutes as it is less than 5 kms, but if this timetable is correct there will not be a bus for you. As you leave the arrival hall there are two agencies to your right and 4 counters across the road that offer transfers to El Nido. Maybe you can find others interested in sharing but expect to pat 7000 pesos.

Thanks for your inputs!

Well I believe we'll just have to gamble if there are any takers for night time, if not will settle for the night at the city.

Cheers!

There's a direct trip from Manila to El Nido. Use AIR SWIFT.
