El Nido is not only a nature’s masterpiece as it is endowed with rich natural marine life. This hidden paradise prime itself as one of the best place in the Philippines when it comes to biodiversity as it hosts more than 400 species of corals which is eight times greater than that of the Caribbean.

Snorkel underneath the Miniloc House Reef and swim side by side with a one and half meter long Jackfish, which is considered to be a rare treat and get dazzled with the exotic and vibrant life forms here.
