The Boracay Dream
Since I was child I always dream of going to this place. I place where I only see in TV ads, poster and movies. I admire this place because of its exquisite beauty and fine sand. So I made a promise to myself that when the time come that I can afford to go there I will surely make an annual visit to that place. So let me share to you my personal experience visiting this very beautiful place in the Philippines.
Boracay Travel Guides
The Boracay Experience
We booked our flight from Air Philippines going to Kalibo International Airport. Upon arrival at the airport we ride a van going to Caticlan Jetty Port which will take us to the Boracay Island. The travel time from Kalibo to Caticlan was about 2hours. So if you will be planning to arrive at the Kalibo International Airport you may also consider the time travelling going to Caticlan. There is also another airport nearer in Boracay which is the Caticlan Airport. It can only accommodate smaller planes that why we decided to go to Kalibo Internation Airport, well that's my personal choice though because I don't want to ride in a small planes I'm scared hehe.
When we arrived at the Caticlan Jetty Port we ride a ferry going to the Boracay Island. This is just a 15-30mins ride across the two islands. We stayed at Frendz Resort Boracay a small resort situated between the Station 1 and Station 2 of the island. On my next hub I will create an exclusive review about this resort and tell you my story on why did we opt to stay in the resort.
We stayed in Boracay for 3 days and 2 nights, our entire trip was fun-filled activity and lots of good memories. I manage to take some photos of the place and I hope that you will also appreciate it.
