Prior to our trip, I already packed everything a week ago. I do this every time not because I’m very much excited but rather I don’t want to be in a hurry and forgot something in the end. Our departure time for Caticlan is around 4 in the afternoon so we have plenty of time. We left home in the morning since we have to commute all the way to NAIA Terminal 3. Taxi from Magallanes to the airport is below Php100. We paid the terminal fee which cost Php 200.00 each, my daughter is still free of charge since she’s below 2 years old.
We arrived at Caticlan past 4 in the afternoon, we ride a tricycle to bring us to the Caticlan port. We paid the environmental fee and port fee for Php 50 each. To reach Boracay, you have to ride a boat which cost Php 25 each and then we ride another tricycle to bring us to our hotel (La Carmela de Boracay), this cost Php 100 since we rent it privately.
After a few minutes of relaxation in the hotel, we decided to get-off and enjoy the beach. However, when we went outside it was already dark, so instead we went to D’talipapa to buy souvenirs.
This photo was taken an hour after we step in to the beach of Boracay. Both were enjoying the sea breeze..
A photo of the hotel we stayed for two days…lucky for us that we got a good deal! :)
My daughter Gab enjoying the heat of the sun! :)
Boat rental ranges from Php 1500 to 2000. There’s a lot of boatman around the island who will approach you and ask if you want to avail of the tour, just be good in bargaining. Prior to island hopping, you have to register and pay in Station 3 where the boats are located.
In our island hopping, we visited some of the islands near Boracay such as Puka beach… we opt not to try snorkeling since based from our experience the first time we went to Boracay, theres only few small fishes around the area, it’s very different from the places that we went before like Palawan and Bohol…

Parasailing…we didn’t tried it not just because it’s expensive but we’re afraid of heights! :)
