If the ATM doesn’t work in El Nido (which is often the case!) there is another way to get money.
You can use an online service called World Remit and send money to a local shop in El Nido called M’Huillier on Real Street BGY (pictured below).
And it’s super easy to do! Simply visit the World Remit website, select the country you wish to send money to, add recipient details and decide how you would like to pay for the transaction.
The fee from World Remit varies per transfer but it’s pretty decent exchange rate. Once you have made the online payment, you can pick up cash within the hour. Phew.
Planning to do an island-hopping trip in El Nido? We found an overnight trip which includes camping on a deserted island!
