El Nido’s four island resort options let you get your fill of the Philippines’ pristine waters, ancient limestone cliffs, and abundance of wildlife. 
Your experience in the sparsely populated Palawan, an archipelago of 1,000+ islands, will be dictated by your choice, whether it’s “adventure,” “discovery,” “sanctuary,” or “luxury” you’re after. Still, at the end of a long day of snorkeling at a marine sanctuary, El Nido is extremely invested in preserving the land for the future and enriching the surrounding communities.

El Nido Resorts

El Nido Resorts, El Nido, MIMAROPA, Philippines

The crystal clear lagoons, white sandy beaches, giant waterfalls and landscapes dotted with palm trees make the Philippines a tropical paradise. Nestled above the scenery, in the treetops of Palawan, is a boutique glamping spot known as The Birdhouse. Here you can sleep in a nest overlooking Bacuit Bay, a handful of tropical islands and the beaches of El Nido.

Our friend Laura Altesa of travel blog Suncherries recently stayed in one of the nests and is sharing her take on the spot below. From the bike rides on palm tree laden fields to hobnobbing with the locals, her favorite memory? The sweet, juicy mangoes.
