Hi everyone, happy 2011! :-)
Leaving for Puerto Princesa in a couple of days and finalizing plans last-minute! We just have a few concerns about our trip up to El Nido with our 5-year-old:
First, will our 5-year-old son have to pay the same rate for the van from Puerto Princesa to El Nido? Is it P500 or P600? Any chance anyone can send me the contact details for the van and schedule for the van to El Nido?
Also, since we're spending 3-4 days in El Nido, we're definitely planning to do some of the island hopping tours. After reading about the tours though, we're a little hesitant to bring our 5-year-old to some of the islands/lagoons if they're too far out at sea (meaning rough waves and bad boat ride) and if he'll be able to enjoy it since he doesn't really know how to swim yet. We're especially worried about taking him to places which will require him to swim through hidden entries, through rock walls, etc. He's a real trooper and loves travelling as much as we do and is always up for new adventures but we want to keep our travels safe, too! We would really appreciate it if anyone can give us tips on the best tours to take with a small child and how we can go about booking tailormade island hopping tours! :)
Thanks so much, everyone! Looking forward to hearing from you guys! :D
