On our journey to Philippines, I pick Boracay Island as our first stop. Why? It is an amazing destination in the Philippines and a popular one. Philippines is made up of more than 7000 islands and it is divided in to three main islands: Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Boracay is in Visayas, a beautiful island surrounded with amazing white sand beaches. You can fly from Manila or Cebu to either Caticlan or Kalibo airports. But Caticlan airport is much closer to Boracay. From the airport, there are public or private ferries that will take you to the island and it’s about 5-10 min ride. There are so many places where you can stay depending on your budget. It is very important that you book your hotel prior to taking the ferry to the island since it required by the Boracay tourism department, otherwise you won’t be allowed to.
When I was in Boracay last February, 2020, I stayed at the Fairways and Bluewater Resort at Station 1. I really enjoyed my stay at the resort since it was really quiet there, yet only one ride to Station 2. However, if you’re looking for all the nightlife and adventures, stay at Station 2 which is located at the center. Also, you can book your activities online or simply book them in person with licensed agents at the beachfront of the Astoria Hotel for a bargain. However, to move around the island, it is very easy and cheap. You can hire the whole electric ride as low as $3 a trip. For food, you can always go to D Mall at Station 2, basically their downtown area and there are a lot of choices and well priced. Before I forget, make sure you try their famous halo mango. Yummy!
