118dot93dot73dot30 moved page 39028i4r039tu3903u90t39t to El Nido over redirect: New title doesn't make a lot of sense - I think the old title was more intuitive...
[[image:cadlao2.jpg|thumb|right|400pxupright=1.3|Cadlao Mountain in El Nido]]'''El Nido''' [http://www.elnidotourism.comEl Nido] is a coastal town in settlement on the [[Philippines]] island of [[Palawan]]. El Nido is comprised of 45 islands and islets; limestone cliffs are also found here, which form a Karst backdrop similar to those found in [[Ha Long Bay]], [[Krabi]] and [[Guilin]]. El Nido is a popular destination for locals during the long holidays of the Holy weekWeek but, but until recently , has been relatively unknown to foreign tourists. El Nido is more than just a stereotypical tropical paradise. Beaches, clear waters, jungle, steep limestone cliffs and stunning inlets make for one of the world's most beautiful seascapes.
Before El Nido became a popular tourist destination, fishing and harvesting swift nests ("Nido" ) were the main source of income. Nowadays tourism has become the municipality's main source of revenue; however, the authorities are trying to keep it sustainable and hotel chains are refreshingly absent. Huge tour groups are nowhere to be seen. El Nido is also known for water sports such as diving, snorkeling and kayaking.
