Still no BANK, no ATM in El Nido

Reposting!

There is still no bank and no ATM anywhere in or near El Nido.

There are plans of BPI putting up a bank, but as of now, BPI has not build anything yet.

Bring Cash. You can change USD, Euro and other currencies in El Nido.

Credit Card are accepted in only few establishments.

You might want to pay you accommodation in advance.

I have not been to El Nido, but in common with some other more remote Filipino towns or localities, is it common for accommodation proprietors to levy a surcharge of five per cent on credit card payments?
