BORACAY please, not Bora! – April 2012

What’s the most popular Summer destination in the Philippines? Say Hi to Boracay! I spent 3D/2N vacation there with my loved ones to splash ourselves in the beach and the white sand.


Date of  visit:

April 22-24, 2012

Hotel Accommodation:

La Carmela de Boracay


Zest Air via Kalibo Airport


Day 1: Summer Laughs

We availed online vouchers that offer a hotel accommodation with free breakfast and an airfare for 3D/2N with a promo price. We grabbed it since it’s a good pay for a visit in a Peak season and less hassle for us.


The bad thing was we got an afternoon flight going Kalibo and a morning flight going back to Manila. So it’s like we’ll be staying for 2 days all in all. Nevertheless, that made our days in Boracay well spent.

After an hour flight to Kalibo, we hired a van and took us 1.5 hours to Caticlan where we paid for fees and rode a pump boat. Then, we rode a tricycle and finally, we landed in the White Beach.

 Every second counts. After we checked in the  hotel, we swam in the beach right away! I was in awe when I saw the sunset! The Philippines is really beautiful!

  And hey, we bought souvenirs in our first day, what can you say? ;p

The day is not over as the Island is really awake  until night time. There are lots of foods, drinks and a lot of people walking everywhere!


Day 2: First Time Fun 

I got sick after this day, why? Take a look.


Yes, the day is filled with exciting activities and unforgettable memories. It’s my first time to ride a banana boat, to try helmet diving/reef walking and to snorkeling!

We also did Island hopping to visit the some remarkable Islands.

Day 3: Happy and Craving for more

 Our last day is mostly preparing our stuff since we have a morning flight. I am happy I spent my Boracay trip with my family and I certainly will go back in this gorgeous beach.
