Recommend using them, they helped with all my needs. Boats, plain etc. They took the time, and didnt rush anything. Good food at the resturant as well :).

This is a solid place to visit and eat in El Nido. There's an upstairs restaurant and a smaller seating area across the street with views of the harbour. We came twice and were warmly greeted and served on both occasions. Good selection of fresh juice, pizza, pasta and fish dishes. The desserts are lovely also, I recommend the Mango... More

My guess is that every single tourist to El Nido stops by Artcafe at some point during their visit. It is tour and info central. You can even pay for tours using credit card which is convenient. They can book your van transfer back to Puerto Princesa. Art Boutique Cafe offers the very, very, popular Island Hopping Tour A, B,... More

Great idea! It has everything: good food (the ONLY place in El Nido that takes credit cards), all the tours and recreations, shop, tourist help desk. If you are lost or have any questions or need ANYTHING - you could come there and ask for help, reserve transportation or tour. As you can suppose, it's more pricey than other places... More

My boyfriend and I booked an island hopping tour (tour A) via the boutique and Art cafe. The booking at the cafe went smoothly and they had many different offers for activities in El Nido. On the tour day, the places we visited were beautiful, but unfortunately there were so many tourists which made it difficult to enjoy. Moreover, the... More

I did two day trips with the Artcafe: tour B and tour A (I wanted to do tour C but it was cancelled by the coastguard that day due to rough seas). Note that all island tours in El Nido are either A, B or C as they are set by the government. The tours were good and I saw... More

We had two excellent experiences here with tours A & C. This is probably the only tour place where you can pay with credit card, but remember to always have a backup since there's not always signal in the island (you've probably read beforehand to bring your cash, because there's only one ATM in the island and when it's out...

Good breakfast spot in El Nido with nice terrace to relax on. A few decent options for good breakfast and service is quite fast which is rare for Philippines from what we've experienced so far.
