Getting there:  Boracay is served by two airports – Caticlan and Kalibo. The flight from Manila to both airports is about one hour long. However, Caticlan offers the shorter route. From Caticlan airport, you only need to take a 20-minute boat ride to reach Boracay. From Kalibo, you need to travel by bus or private minivan for about 2-2.5 hours to Caticlan and then take the boat ride to Boracay.

Where to stay: Boracay offers a wide range of accommodation from budget to high-end. Most accommodations are situated along White Beach, which is divided into three sections:
  • Station 1 is in northern part of White Beach where the high-end resorts are situated. If you want a less crowded and finer beachfront, this is the best area to stay.
  • Station 2 is the area for mid-range accommodation.
  • Station 3 in the south end holds a large concentration of budget options. This area is popular for backpackers.

    Wow, its truly is a paradise. I wish I can be there right now. Too cold here in NYC today. Love the photos, as usual.

      Hey Kira, thanks! We also wish we were back there right now.

  2. Love your pics! Soooo colorful. Can you believe I’ve been halfway around the world, but never been to Boracay yet? I’ve always associated it with romance, so I’ve promised myself not to go there alone 😀

      Huh!!?? Aleah, that’s a shocker!!! You seemed to have combed every part of the Philippines and you haven’t been to B? We think you should go. Who know’s that’s where you may find romance:):)

  3. So lovely, Marisol, I don’t know how you do it (obviously with a lot of talent), but your photos are my all time favourite. Just stunning :)
