Pre-book El Nido island boat tours with Palawan Alternative. We offer an easy way to reserve tour slots and government permits online. Booking your island-hopping tour in El Nido has never been this easy!
To combat the destructive effects of cheap mass tourism, the local government will reasonably implement tour price changes, carrying capacities, and time limits to some of the iconic sights around Bacuit Bay. This will require tour companies to reserve permits and slots on behalf of their guests in advance. The changes will help in preserving and protecting our nature for future generations.
At Palawan Alternative, we strongly advocate for sustainable travel so we are very much in favor of all these changes. We need to protect our home too. This is why we always encourage our travelers to be mindful of their impact socially and environmentally.
