Manila to Puerto Princesa. Catch the 1-hour domestic flight from Manila (MNL) to Puerto Princesa (PPS). The main airlines are Cebu Pacific and Airphil Express (Philippine Airlines). These flights run all day, every day, and a one-way ticket runs approximately US$25-50. Air Swift also offers direct flights from Manila to El Nido for ~US$150 one way.

Puerto Princesa to El Nido. The Roro and Cherry bus lines have departures to El Nido every 2 hours. This 6-hour trip costs US$8-12. 12 seater vans running the same route cost about US$15, and local buses costs about US$6 (but take an extra hour).

El Nido to El Gordo's. From the bus terminal it's a 10 - 15 minute tricycle ride (motorbike with side car) or a 15 minute walk from the center of El Nido town. Ask for directions to Tandul and then ask for "El Gordo's" - the locals know where we are and are always happy to help. Our coordinates on Google Maps.
