|LA CASA TERESA, our home in El Nido.|
El Nido is a lovely place to visit, especially during summer–widely known for its beautiful beaches, karsts and island hopping activities. Since we stayed outside the town, we experienced the authentic local hospitality which made me fall in love with El Nido. Local hospitality include friendly strangers offering a lift on their motorcycles while we wait for a tricycle to pass by.
|ROAD SIGNS. La Casa Teresa is a bit far from the road. Road signs are placed along the main road in Corong-Corong.|
Original plan is to choose a resort where Kareen and I can just roll on the sand all day long. So we choose La Casa Teresa as our home for 2 nights and 3 days for its location (beach front!) and they offer free breakfast. And they did not disappoint. There might be some downsides staying away from the establishments and tourist haunts but we still love the place.
|VERANDA WITH A VIEW. This spot has an amazing view of the sea and the sunset and the common dining area.|
|WALL PERSONALITY. Resorts are pretty big on wooden decors.|
La Casa Teresa is a few minutes away from the town. One has to ride a tricycle to take you there. Transportation cost is a bit costly, we have to make use of our time at the town. Make sure to ask the locals in the area the transportation cost because some drivers take advantage of tourists.
There are no neighboring restaurants around. We had our dinner at the Four Seasons Inn (beside La Casa) since we checked in at 6pm our first night. Option is to go to the town for some grub, but vehicles going to the town are intermittent. And delivery is not an option, there’s no Jollibee or McDonald’s in the area.
Though, our accommodation is located by the beach, we’ve never seen people swimming in the sea–only a bunch of outrigger boats minding their own business. And the sea is not swim-able right out front.
It is common knowledge that there is scheduled power interruption. When you wake up in the morning, be sure to bring a flashlight to avoid bumping on things. Since power outage starts at 6am to 2pm, that means no a/c and taking up a challenge to take a shower in the dark.
|PRICELESS VIEW. Only at La Casa Teresa.|
