As its quite popular, be prepared to travell on yoir tour with crowd of people on the boat. I rather recommend onw of the smaller travel offices on the same street that are... More

Hello, we do never use powder in Artcafe for our fruit shakes. At the moment, Mangos are not every day available since it's Off season for Mangos now and they are shipped from other provinces to Palawan, once a week. The demand is high. Sometimes we have to wait till they get ripe or it can been made into a... More

We were lucky enough to only have 9 people on our tour and we had a good amount of time at each destination before the other tour boats turned up which made us feel like we were on our own private islands! However unlike the tours we took in Coron our guide on this tour was very quiet and only... More

Trip was amazing with the sights, there were too many tourists and some times it was unsafe, best to to this tour if you are a strong swimmer.

We used the art cafe tour booking upstairs to organise our boat trips in El Nido, they were friendly and flexible with weather issues and even contacted our accommodation to let us know about cancellations and re booking. Healthy meals as well but slightly pricier than local places!
