Ferry from San José to El Nido

Ferry from San José to El Nido

There are two possibilites if you want to travel from San José (Mindoro) to El Nido (Palawan). Either you take the plane but you will have to fly back to Manila and then to El Nido / Puerto Princesa or you take a ferry to Coron and afterwards to El Nido. When we were there, the fast ferry from San José to Coron was in maintenance mode for several months already. Locals didn‘t expect it to be repaired any time soon or at all. So you will have to take the slow ferry (Banka) which takes around 6 to 7 hours and costs 800 PHP per person. Please be aware, that you can’t buy tickets in advance. You will need to go the the ticket office before your departure, which is located 1-2 km away from the port. They only allowed around 30 passengers so there was enough room to lay down on the benches, although it was not that comfortable. Depending on the day you will get a better boat. They served us some rice with fish during the ride.
In Coron there are many fast ferries to El Nido which take around 3-4 hours and are very comfortable. It cost us 1750 PHP per person. Mostly your accomodation will assist you in booking a ticket, so it‘s very easy.
