How many days should I stay in El Nido?

Planning a trip El Nido can very difficult, figuring out a schedule, organizing tours, and finding people to trust to take care of you can be stressful. At The Birdhouse El Nido we strive to provide a stress-free trip from planning up to your leaving paradise. Below are some example itineraries, based on the amount of time you will spend in El Nido, that include the most popular destinations and tours.
Of course for those who want to be the crowds we can always help organize private boats, sunset cruises, set up proposals on secluded islands, or get you off-the-beaten path.

Tours A and Tour C are the most popular island hopping tours which include stops at various lagoons and beaches with some snorkeling in between and a grilled picnic lunch.

Tours B and Tour D are less crowded, just as beautiful and have their own hidden gems that await visitors.

If you’d rather stay inland we can help arrange tours to Nacapan and Calitang Beach (Twin beaches), Duli Beach for surfing, San Fernando for northern El Nido tip beaches, or hikes to waterfalls.
