Great Palawan Escape: Puerto Princesa + El Nido

Last September 11, 2010, we launched ClubTravelNOW!TM with you amid the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Coron, Palawan.

This year, join ClubTravelNOW!TM once again as we celebrate our first anniversary in – for sentimental purposes – Palawan still, but this time at the precious grandeur of world-class nature destinations Puerto Princesa and El Nido!

Great Palawan Escape: Puerto Princesa + El Nido
The ClubTravelNOW!TM Anniversary Edition
September 10-13, 2011

Experience the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Underground River or the Subterranean National Park in Puerto Princesa. Currently vying to be among the world’s newest natural wonders, see it for yourself before the world comes to discover it first.

In El Nido, marvel at the pristine beaches and islands that we will cover by island hopping. These sights include Miniloc, Simizu and 7 Commando Islands on Day 3; and Matinloc, Tapiutan and Helicopter Islands, including Cagbatang Beach, Matinloc Shrine, and Star Beach. And if weather allows, also get to see the Secret Beach. All on the Day 2.

We will be billeted at El Nido Four Seasons Beach Resort – one of El Nido’s best resorts. Located along the beach, it has a spectacular view of the Miniloc Island, Helicopter Island and 7 Commando Beach – not to mention, front-row views of majestic El Nido sunsets.

All meals are included in the package, except for Day 2 dinner so you’ll get a chance to choose from among El Nido’s eating places. Every day, enjoy your breakfast at the resort, lunches during the island hops, buffet dinner on Day 1, and for Day 3 – experience the hospitality of El Nido through the dinner to be hosted for us by the kind El Nido Mayor Edna Lim.

All rooms have airconditioning, a mini bar, cable TV, hot showers and a private terrace to enjoy the fantastic view. Room-sharing is at 3-6 persons in a room. Limited 2-person rooms are also available with extra charges.

For once again being part of this memorable occasion with ClubTravelNOW!TM, you’ll definitely get a souvenir shirt. We’re still arranging for sponsors to provide you with great freebies you’ll definitely enjoy. (Like to give a sponsorship? That would be awesome! Please get in touch with us.)

Of course, it’s with your friends at ClubTravelNOW!TM – members old and new. Seeing Palawan is a great treat enough, but enjoying it with ClubTravelNOW!TM friends – you can’t get that anywhere! And it’s tons of fun for sure!
