Own experience: When I travelled to El Nido, I decided khổng lồ take the van from Puerkhổng lồ Princesa lớn El Nivì & try out the bus on the way bachồng. I expected the bus would be less bumpy & offer a bit more comfort, but that was not the case. The roads are quite narrow and there are quite a lot of turns.

Please take down the suggestion of using Bookaway to lớn get a van. They will book through Eulen Joy Express who are a local taxi firm. Look up their review online – they are not a good company. We recently had an awful experience with them và don’t seem to lớn be the only ones! They won’t take you directly khổng lồ your hotel; they stiông chồng you in a tricycle at the kết thúc of a 5 hour van ride to lớn find your hotel. Not igiảm giá.

I just thought it would be good for people to be aware as Bookaway is a middleman & is not responsible for the unique of service after they’ve sầu booked your travel.
