Boracay

Boracay Tours

My free trip to Boracay

Image

Our little fleet. Seair’s Dornier 328

Gusto namin bumack out nung nakita namin  to. FTW!? Buwis buhay pala pag libre!!! hahahaImage

This is how it looks inside. Kitang kita ang pilot at walang cabin crew. Nung sinara yung door ng air plane omg natakot talaga ako. Pero according to Seair’s staff this is their safest plane. In case it crashes it will glide unlike the big ones.

Fast forward: Here we are again in Boracay. It’s been almost 2 years since we’ve been here. It feels great to be back here last January 7-9 2012. We flew from Clark-Caticlan. I like Caticlan airport because it’s near the Island of Boracay unlike in Kalibo 2 and half hours is wasted in travelling.

Image

We have a 2 nights free accomodation at The Tides Boracay in Station 2. Yeah Baby!! I love everything that is free.

Tip: If someone offers you free lunch or dinner in exchange of a “short” presentation, decline. Because it isn’t “short” it’s loooooooong. A lot of you’re time will be just be wasted. It isn’t really free.

During our last stay here in Boracay we were not able to enjoy   the beach by swimming alot because we had a lot of activities do like helmet diving, banana boat, island hopping etc. So we spent most of our time relaxing and swimming at the beach or the Hotel’s pool.

Image

Boracay will always be breathtakingly beautiful. You will never get enough this Island even if you come here every year.

The tide’s infinity pool at the roof top

It’s hard to take photos when there is just the 2 of you. It was raining when we were swimming. It was so cold.

Image

No trip is complete without shopping

Image

On our second day we decided to do more swimming, strolling and avail our free zip line

 even if its gloomy and raining a little.

 Image

This is my favorite photo that he hates so much. Pat is not a fan of couple’s shirts or clothes but I made him wear this in exchange of a surprise. hahaha! Actually the shorts does not fit him but I told him that he has to wear them just for a picture. Good thing is that my boyfriend loves to please me 🙂

Image

While we were taking this photo we saw Koreans lurking in Station 1 wearing couples clothes too..haha!

Image

This is at Club Fairways, Blue and water Resort. We also have free zip line from them. Unfortunately I’m fearless and he’s a chicken. He didn’t have the balls to do it. In fact he was trying to stop me because the wind was so strong and it was raining a bit. But nothing can stop me from having fun :p

Image

See those two people wearing red and white. That’s me and my guide. This activity starts from this point all the way down to the beach grounds.

Image

The wind was so strong and I could not shift my body to go forward.

Image

I was tring to smile but I was screaming out loud. It was so fun! I would definitely do this again 🙂

Image

Chicken and I. The view here is so beautiful. But Only guests from the hotel can swim here

Night life in Boracay: The famous fire dance

Image

Oysters buffet along station 2. Beach front

Image

Unlike the last time that we were here, We didn’t party so hard because there’s just the 2 of us. We drank beer, listened to good live band,  and talked about the future.. chos!

Image

On our last day I woke up early sneaked out and I bought us some breakfast.  We decided to do more swimming in station 1.

Image

May pagka Christian Grey itong boyfriend ko. Sinaktan ako kagabe kaya may bugbog hita ko..haha

Which is fine with me kase ang tipo kong lalake yung mkhang sasaktan ako..haha

Image

When I was taking photos of him, there was a man who approached us. He claims to be in authority and he’s charging Pat for smoking along the beach because smoking and drinks is prohibited. We didn’t have our wallets with us and we were clueless. I told him that ” that laws should first be promulgated before you can impose them” he said that it is the responsibility of our hotel to inform us. But since we didn’t have our money, He just took our hotel room number and names.

Image

 We had coffee at Cafe Del Sol before we left. We wore shirts saying “I’m a fined tourist in Singapore” We were joking about it. He said that we hould change Singapore to Boracay.hahaha

Image

Then again we said goodbye to this beautiful Island. I will always be back 🙂

Image

Our flight was on time. Yeah! I was able to catch my night classes.

Thank You Seair for giving us an opportunity to experience Boracay once again. Before this trip Pat and I had a promise that someday we will come back here together. Just me and him alone. It did happen. Dreams do come true you know 🙂 That’s why I’m dreaming of a honeymoon in Paris. Chos! 🙂

Boracay never failed to mesmerize me.   In fact I want to be one of its protector. I love this place as much as I love my country.  It’s definitely no wonder why I love to wander in Boracay.

P.S. If you’re wondering why I got my free trip from Seair read this post.

Swiper’s Inn Review



Swiper’s inn is located along station 1 beach front of Boracay Island. It used to be a vacation house until it was converted by the owners into a commercial establishment. Now it is an inn that provides accommodation services. The ground floor of Swiper’s inn is a restaurant named Kasbah. While the second and third floor are large rooms which costs P6, 000 per day.

These rooms can accommodate around 6-8 persons. Since these rooms face the beach, the designs of the rooms are perfect because beautiful scenery of the beach can be seen from the windows. The place is beautiful, but chambermaids won’t clean your room if you don’t ask them to. The CR’s structure is not also good because the floor gets wet when someone take a shower. I guess the shower curtains are too short. I hope they do something about that because no one likes a wet floor. Ours was even flooding with water when we stayed there.

Swiper’s Inn is also too far from everything. You have to ride a tricycle because It is far from d’mall, where people shop, it is too far from d’ talipapa where the market is located. If you’re looking for Night life, you will also have to walk far enough to get to Guilly’s island or Paraw.

It’s Boracay please, not Bora

Image

My professor once corrected my classmate when he heard her say “Bora”. “You mean Boracay?” he said. From then on, I dared not say Bora unless I refer to Bora Bora of Tahiti.

In summer 2010 our destination was within the bounds of the Philippines. One of the famous tourist spot here is Boracay Island. It is located in the province of Aklan. They say that it was a hidden paradise  until it was accidentally discovered. Now it is one of the best beaches in the world.

Boracay is indeed a paradise. It’s place where you can actually forget the rest of the world. The beach is spectacular, powdery white sand is wonderful, great restaurants, cheap hotels and fantastic people. There are loads of things you could do here. The locals offer water sports like, helmet diving, para sailing, banana boat, flying fish, snorkeling and many more. If you want to be amaze with nature go Island hopping which costs around 2,500 per group.

Image

Image

If you crave for sea foods, d’talipapa is the place to be. lobsters costs around P1500. Buy all the sea foods you want, and find a restaurant located along the area that will cook for you. And if you want to shop, visit d’mall where you’ll find almost everything that you’re looking for.

The Adventure:

Our Travel Group. We Were with some mama’s friends

Tip: Before purchasing anything or closing a deal with the locals, try looking for cheaper ones, there are hundreds more offering the same, and they are definitely cheaper. Men selling hats at the shore offer their hats for P250 but you could buy them ind’talipapa for only P100. Helmet Diving costs around P800 per head but we were able to close a deal with another, for only P400. remember to get their contact no. so when you get back, you get discounts or refer them to your friends. Find Mang Danny, he lurks around station 2 in front of the Yellow Cab pizza. He offer varieties of cheap. water sports

Island Hopping

Image

Our first adventure is Island hopping. In this activity you will visit 3  Islands. One Island is enough to startle you with the beauties of nature. You’ll see how wonderful the ocean is. You’ll see so many things that will astound you.

Cave in one of the Islands

Beautiful Isn’t it?

Banana Boat Ride:

Image

No one fell! It was so fun!

Flying Fish

 guess this is everyone’s favourit. I saw my group’s smile on their faces after doing this. They love it and they said they’d do it over and over again. I did not try this one because my boyfriend and I just had our time together and swim on the beach.

Helmet Diving

Image

This Activity is Superb. You’ll actually go under the sea and join the fishes and feed them. But don’t be afraid because you’ll have an orientation of what are the dos and don’ts under the water. Well your ear will hurt because of the pressure but the view is amazing. All the pain will be worth it. When I did this I was singingÜnder the sea” while feeding the fishes and for some weird reason a fish bit me.

BEACH PARTY

The famous fire dance

The best thing about being young and being in Boracay is— THE NIGHT LIFE. You’ll meet a lot of party people. Beers are expensive, but when you’re already having fun and going wild. It’s all worth it! Experience beach party around Boracay, get drunk, get high and wake up without remembering anything. We attended so many bars for 4 nights that we were here so I can’t enumerate all of them anymore. But Guilly’s Island is our favorite.

Overall the experience is FUN! FUN! FUN! You haven’t seem them all. There are loads we haven’t tried and experience. What I love about being here is nobody cares about you. Wear what you want, Act how you want, Say whatever and no one cares which is not really a Filipino Culture so It’s like being out of the country too.  It’s definitely no wonder I love to wander.

Watch this short clip I made that summarizes my trip here, this video also won in a travel contest that brought me back to Boracay for free:
