El Nido Boutique & Artcafe: One Stop Shop
This is indeed a one-stop-shop.
Souvenir items such as postcards, t-shirts, local products can be found here.
Last minute needed items for the island hopping tour can be grabbed here also --- such as disposable underwater camera, batteries and slippers.
A restaurant at the 2nd floor has a nice ambiance too, especially at night.
Tour bookings can be arranged here too.
What I like most at the 2nd floor are the books and magazines which you can peruse over a cup of coffee.
They accept credit card payment too... a big help to those who do not have enough cash since there's no bank within El Nido.

Souvenir Shop (Miniloc): Way Beyond Budget
There's only one souvenir shop in Miniloc resort. And boy, they're only serving the foreigners! Hahaha! No, I'm just kidding. Actually, the prices are for foreigners! The items are expensive. Imagine t-shirts selling for PhP350.00+ a piece. Kids shirts go for PhP250.00+ a piece. Even small items like keychains, bracelets, and ref magnets are priced above PhP100.00. There's nothing in the souvenir shop that sells below PhP100.00. So it's a disappointment for me coz i wasn't able to buy my friends some pasalubong.
The good thing though is you yourself will have a souvenir already. I got this large banig bag woven by El Nido women (their craft place can also be a part of your itinerary). They give one piece per hut. Thoughtful!
What to buy: There are shawls, bags, scarves, hats, shirts, desk decors, and other knick knacks available. I really liked the designs on the shirts.
What to pay: Above PhP100.00
