Planning a trip to

El Nido?

El Nido is a Protected Area

Much of El Nido – including Bacuit Bay and El Nido Town – lies within a national park called the “El Nido-Taytay Managed Resource Protected Area.” Certain unsustainable activities like commercial fishing, hunting, and logging, are not allowed in El Nido. Visitors are asked to pay an “Ecotourism Development Fee” to support the park’s management, so that El Nido’s forests, coral reefs, and beaches remain healthy for generations to come.

Ten El Ni-Dos

Do admire the corals but remember that they are very delicate. Damaged when touched, stood upon or walked on.

1.

Do treat the terrestrial and marine fauna as you would people. Be friendly yet respect their privacy.

2.

Do remember to bring home whatever you brought in to El Nido. Beach litter is made up mostly of non-biodegradable items and are sometimes mistaken as food by animals

3.

Do help keep the waters of El Nido crystal clear, the sand powder white, and the forest lush and green. Cigarette butts, cans, and plastic wrappers belong in trash bins.

4.

Do marvel at the unique marine and terrestrial formations. As many as they may seem, the shells on the beach are finite in number.

5.

Do mingle with the members of the local community but respect their culture and traditions.

6.

Do uphold the rights of all innocent children

7.

Do understand that all things are related to everything-- every single organism and object has its particular role and contribution to the environment.

8.

Do accept the responsibility to sustain and heal the Earth; whatever we sow, we shall reap-- there is no other way with nature.

9.

Do respect all forms of life and recognize the limits of El Nido’s life support systems. Together we can help keep El Nido’s resources as rich as it is now.
