Boracay is paradise!

 
A very delayed entry.

Last February 19, I finally got to see Boracay! My next stops will be Palawan, Bohol and Batanes.   I’ve been to a few of our best destinations like Puerto Galera, Batangas, Tagaytay, Cebu, Ilocos Norte, Baguio and Dumaguete, but there’s still so much to see. 🙂

Back to Boracay. Thanks to my hubby who arranged everything, I had a great time in Boracay. Everything was perfect! The Boracay Regency service was impeccable. Here are some of the things I’ve learned about escapades in this island:  

1. It’s great to go during off-peak seasons (meaning don’t go in summer). Sounds crazy, I know but the best part about going during off-peak is you gate off-peak rates, same service and less crowd. With less crowd this means that you have more attention for you and less need for queuing. Best period is a few weeks before the peak season, Like the first few weeks of February.

2. I love station 1. Best part ever. Very quiet and secluded. If you are in this island to relax and unwind this is the station for you. If you are in Boracay to party, I recommend you stay in Station 2. Never got to see Station 3 though.

3. It’s true Jonas shakes rock! Try their banana choco peanut shake, mocha rhum and melon banana. Yummy!
 
4. Be prepared to have lots of extra money (small denominations are suggested). Very handy for extra fees like terminal and environmental fees.

EXTRA: In our trip to Boracay, we met a local hunting for food. They call it “Kawing-Kawing” a wormlike animal that burrows itself in Boracay’s white sand.

I asked him how they cook it and he said “Adobo”. For people not familiar with Adobo it’s a popular cooking style in the Philippines. Just saute pork or chicken (well kawing-kawing this instance) in garlic, pepper and onion then add soy sauce wait for it to boil. Looks very interesting and exotic!
