El Nido by private van from Puerto Princesa, 5 hrs?

When I first started researching, I read that travel time between PP and El Nido is 8 hours. It sounded terrible. I felt like my only choice was to bite the bullet, book the expensive resort, pay their outrageous price so I can book thru ITI, so we wouldn't have to endure the drive!!!! We have 2 kids age 7 and 9.

Then I read more posts here. Some say 5 -6 hrs. by private van. This sure sounds a lot better than 8 hrs. I even called El Nido Boutique and Art Cafe, also said 5 hrs., is this true? I am planning to go next year with my family during Holy Week itself (April, dry season)

From your experience, how long did it really take you to get to El Nido by van? Thank you!

Thanks so much.
