So we decided to book roundtrip flights from Manila to El Nido on Airswift without much prior research. We really would like to do an island hopping tour but I'm not sure how it would work with our schedule.
We land in El Nido on Jan 24 at 8:15AM and depart back to Manila on Jan 25 at 5:35PM. I knwo, not much time, but it's all I had to work with and El Nido has been on the list for a while, so forgive me.
Most tours I've seen run from 9AM-4PM. With the flight landing at 8:15AM, I'm not sure we'd have time to make the 9AM tours, even with we just drop stuff at the hostel and head out. I'm not sure how often the ships arrive after 4PM, but that would pose an issue if we didn't make the flight back to Manila.
Are there any early bird tours that we could look at doing, I read someone saying they might have some that leave El Nido at 7:30AM? Or maybe some half day ones instead? I guess going private is an option, though pretty expensive.
My goal originally was to do an island hopping tour one day and rent a scooter and visit the waterfall/Nacpan Beach the next.
