Van ride to Puerto Princesa
Again, we woke up early for breakfast and our trip back to Puerto Princesa.
|last breakfast at casa cecilia|
By 7:30am, Kuya Joseph and the van was already waiting outside of the hotel. Kuya though would not be able to accompany us back to Puerto Princesa kasi may other guests siyang kadarating lang din sa El Nido. Anyway, mabait ang driver na kinuha ni Kuya for us and safe naman magmaneho.
Stopped at roadside, for last picture taking of El Nido islets.
|we'll be back!|

Tourists flock baker's hill for their goodies like hopia, bread, casuy which are sealed and good for pasalubong. They are cheap but taste good. Saktong pangpasalubong. Aside from that, people are free to roam around their garden and have pics with the characters there. See some of our pics below.

We then went to a souvenir shop before checking in for PALO ALTO. Medyo mahal yun ibang items so di kami masyado namili dito. Won't mention the shop and place anymore but this is just 1-2 blocks away from MCA pasalubong Center which is where the cheaper pasalubong items can be bought. Yun mga printed shirts dito rin mas marami mabibili so if your guide suggests for another place, just tell him to go to MCA dahil mas mura talaga dito. Did not have much time anymore so decided to go there the next day na lang.
PALO ALTO BED AND BREAKFAST
Already advised them in advance that we'll be checking in late. Arrived there at 4pm na. Check in was fast, they gave out welcome drinks and assisted us with our luggage. We booked 2 deluxe rooms with loft, again 1 for 4pax and the other for 5pax.
They have a pool (located at the other side of the compound) and a resto. The place is very clean and quiet, has a relaxing vibe and if you really want to be with nature, then this is the place to be. Though its a bit far from the city center, need to take a trike ride (around 5 mins) just to go to the main road.
They do have a shuttle service available, however these are scheduled and you are about to go outside of their schedule, you'd need to pay 300 per ride (for the whole group) to the city center and then another 300 back to the hotel. If you have cash to spare then that's ok but if its a budgeted trip, then you'd probably think that it'll be cheaper if you just go by trike ride.
now for the rooms.

We had a great sleep in this room. The bed and pillows are soft, good quality linen. Place is very quiet and sleep quality is great! Towels are clean and soft, water pressure is good. Electronics are all working well. Aircon is cold and enough to cool the room.
Got the rooms for around 5k per deluxe room with addt'l 750 for addt'l pax, for the quality that we get, ok na ok na siya. Cons lang talaga is medyo malayo siya sa city center pero that's what you get if you really want a good sleep. Medyo maingay kasi pag near the main road kumuha ng hotel.
