El Nido town offers an embarrassment of choices for the budget traveler; pension houses and beachfront cottages often go for as little as $20 a room. The low-cost El Nido hotels and resorts listed here leave more room in the budget for diving, island-hopping, and more of the many activities you can do in this laid-back Palawan beach community.
