Both towns offer many options for the budget traveler, while tourists looking for more luxurious getaway have the outlying, secluded resorts to choose from. El Nido is 285 kilometer north of Puerto Princesa. From Puerto Princesa to El Nido there are regular shuttle vans operated by Fortwally Shuttle departing at San Jose Terminal at 7.00 am and if prebooked 11.00 or 13.00 h. (Booking is required). Regular buses travel to El Nido in the morning at 7.00 am, 9.00 am and frequently at 11.00 am. Travel time is 8 hours by bus. Only once a week WGA ferry sails the route Manila-Puerto Princesa and vice versa in 21 hours. They stop in Busuanga Island, Coron town. They do NOT stop in El Nido. These days Seair flies 19 seater planes on certain days of the week to conveniently connect Manila, Puerto Princessa, El Nido and Busuanga. Local motorized outrigger boats (“banca”) are offered very irregularly to travelers between El Nido and Busuanga Island. However, this is not advisable as you are 9 hours on open sea, especially during typhoon season ! Same for the unreliable, irregular sea connection between Mindoro Island and Palawan.
