Rather than take a 6–hour ferry from El Nido to Coron on the Palawan Island of the Philippines, we decided to book a 3–day “liveaboard” boat tour and do some island hopping instead.
This is Dan with NY See You Later, and we did extensive research—well, Emille did extensive research—so that you don’t have to. She found that Buhay Isla had the right combo of price to number of positive reviews.
We visited 4–islands each day and slept in beachfront bungalows. On Liveaboard tours, you usually sleep on the boat, so this was a nice change. Activities included visiting remote islands, cliff jumping, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking and exploring caves.
Roda, Eric and the entire staff kept the party going with excellent food, drinks, excursions and their sparkling personalities. All of the travelers aboard became instant friends, and we took some epic subway handle shots with them.
Buhay Isla Expedition in Palawan, Philippines, we hope to “see you later!”
