Traveling with friends can make or break your adventure. Either you have a blast or burn yourself out. It usually takes time to plan but it is more cheaper and merrier. You just need the right people to make sure you spend your trip full of good vibes

Lucky for me I just had the right mix of fun-loving and easy-going college buddies for an El Nido island hopping getaway. When we were planning for an awesome adventure, we made sure to explore the best island named Palawan, Philippines. Let me share to you 10 things why it is more fun to travel with your squad.

When in El Nido with your squad, you can:

1. Enjoy the road trip.

6 hours trip from Puerto Princesa to El Nido is more fun when you own the van.

2. Start a boat party.

Most of us were first-timers and bumped our kayaks often. We were like inside a big arcade game.

6. Indulge into an island feast.
