We have a love/hate relationship with tricycles: we love them because they are exciting, we hate them because they are so dangerous!
A tricycle is a motorcycle that's been altered so it can take a passenger or two (or four) on the side. Lots seem to have sidecars made out of old cars, lots are colourful and all seem to be about as safe as a rusty nail.

Alternatively you can fly to Puerto Princessa and get the Cherry Bus up to El Nido. The bus is bumpy, they play movies or music which seem to be at a really loud volume when you don't want to hear them, and a really low volume when you do.. Still, both the bus ride there and the bus ride back were some of our favourite memories in the Philippines (we're sad):
