There’s this possibility that when a traveller visits a place for a second time it would not be as magical as the first time. I’m glad to know that on my second time in El Nido, Palawan it was still as beautiful as it used to be when I went there for the first time.
I was fortunate to join Marky Ramone Go of Nomadic Experiences and my new friend Pam Bringino on this trip. They got there a day ahead of me, which is good as they could do El Nido Island Hopping Tour A without me. For the next 2 days I’ll be joining them for Tour B and C.

Tour B (800 Pesos/pax)
Wake up at 7AM then breakfast, around 8AM we’ll book for an Island Hopping Tour B, at 9AM we’ll ride the boat and start hopping.
Our itinerary for Tour B was to visit Panggulasian Island, Snake Island, Cudognon Cave, Cathedral Cave and Pinagbuyutan Island. But due to some circumstances going around El Nido there were some modifications to the itinerary.
First stop would be Panggulasian Island. I thought we were going to an island and lay on the beach for a while but there was a resort being built on the island so we were not permitted to go there but we can do snorkeling at nearby shallow sea in front of the island.
Next is my personal favorite for Tour B, the Snake Island. We went up to the top of the hill which showed superb view.

Then went down and since our lunch was not still ready, we decided to experience why the island is named Snake Island. A long sandbar connects this island to another island where we walked during the low tide.

Then I saw another unique sea creature and I shall call it a Sea Dog. According to our boatman/tour guide the dogs from the other side of the sand bar would swim across the sea around 11AM because they know that people will be having their lunch at the Island.
