A trip to El Nido would not be complete unless you visit some of its islands and beaches where each of them has their own appeal. And to make it easier, economical and more accessible for tourists to venture in these islands and beaches, the Local Government therein promulgated four tour packages to choose from. These tour packages will take you on a journey to explore a specific part of the islands surrounding El Nido. You will discover beautiful and preserved islands, clear water lagoons, white sand beaches, snorkeling sites and their hundred of fishes and coral species.

Palawan : El Nido's Nacpan Beach

Nacpan's Twin Beach
Travelers often rate El Nido as one of the best island and beach destination in the world, and that beautiful Nacpan Beach with the iconic Twin Beach of Nacpan and Calitang is my personal favorite. The name El Nido means "The Nest" in Spanish and was named after the nests of swiftlets found in the caves of its 250 million year-old limestone cliffs. The tranquil, clear waters are very inviting for swimming, and it has one of the widest and longest stretch of white sand beach perfect for those who want to achieve golden tan.

A Definitive Guide in Settling The Estate of a Deceased Person

I - FIRST THINGS FIRST. Submit Notice of Death to the BIR within 2 months after death. The Notice of Death must be accompanied with Certified Copy of Death Certificate.

Take note that the Notice of Death must be filed with the BIR having jurisdiction over the residence of the deceased as indicated in the Death Certificate. Thus, even if the decedent is registered in Makati but he resides in Pasig, he must submit the Notice of Death in Pasig. Failure to pay Notice of Death within the required period will result in penalty which may amount to Php 50,000.

El Nido : Twelve Sunset Photos at Corong-Corong Beach

Sail Away
A day and a night cannot exist at the same time but they are linked in a way that one always gives way to the other. And when they meet, something magical happens that any witness knows to never waste any amount of time doing anything even if it is important because when there is sunset outside, you should do nothing but just sit under it.

In Between Pleadings

The pace here is so different... very much different from the chaotic world I left in Manila yesterday. Just after filing my Petition for Review with the Appeals Court in the afternoon, I hurriedly proceed to the airport to catch my almost midnight flight to paradise.

Having accustomed to the rat race of the legal profession and court room battles known as "pressure cooker", I wanted unfamiliar faces, fresh experiences, and a new self.

In El Nido, Palawan, after wandering through its idyllic streets and looking out over the beach from the balcony of a famous Cafe, I wandered westward towards the end of the beach, hoping to savor the scene I had imagined - foreigners in nothing but bikinis, beach side diners buzzing with conversation of languages I can barely understand.

A Day of Prayers at Monasterio De Tarlac

Jesus the Redeemer
As the song goes, it is a long and winding road. And once you left the city proper, the country side view of farmlands will greet you until you eventually ascend. And once you see biblical quotes beautifully planted on a road side, then, you are just few minutes away from the home of a relic from the holy cross - the Monasterio de Tarlac.
