waiting for our flight back to manila..

terminal fee sa caticlan airport, 200 na din pala. ang alam ng hotel staff 100 pa. haha

station 1 and 2 may lumot na, sa 3 today, meron na ring konti.

lemoni cafe nakakadisappoint. :(

tama sisses natin, ok sa boracay kahit walang activity! but still, magastos pa rin kami sa pagkain.

sa boracay ocean club (station 3, almost dulo na) kami nagstay, roundtrip airport transfers kasama na, wala na kami binayarang terminal fee ng ports at environmental fees, etc. hassle-free!!

ang layo ng nilalakad namin every meal time, nakaabot pa kami ng station 1.

daming tao!! parang divisoria lang pagdinner time, buti sa area ng hotel wala masyadong tao. hehe

Hi! Sorry but I can't seem to find the answer in the thread, but may naka-try na ba sa inyo na flight ng CebPac na 11pm arrival in Kalibo? May vans pa ba dun going to Caticlan, and what time yung first ferry? TIA!
Do you know you're unlike any other?

^sis para sakin ok yung station 3 kasi nung andun kami, yun lang yung part na walang lumot tsaka konti lang tao (naglalakad, nagsasunbathing, nagsiswimming). pero andun kasi mga bangka, pero no biggie naman, malayo naman sila sa shoreline.

ewan ko lang, ang gulo na ng station 2. ang sikip parang divisoria. nakakairita na rin mga nagooffer ng tour/activities.

ang downside lang nito ay malayo siya sa famous restos. pero mayroon din namang masarap na kainan sa 3, like hakuna matata.

Just got back from Boracay din. We were there nov29-dec2. Wala naman ako napansin na lumot sa white beach.. Sa Puka Beach meron konti pero keribels naman. Iba pa din ang dami ng lumot kapag summer.

Nag-stay kami sa Hey Jude Resort. Mura lang tapos maluwag ang room. Parang around php2k/night for two pax with set breakfast. Me two queen-sized beds. Tatlo kami so nagbayad kami php600/night for the addl person, with set breakfast na din. Basic pero ok na. Malapit sa D'Mall, 2mins walk to the beach, pero hindi naman maingay sa gabi.

Medyo kainis lang, ang mahal ng terminal fee sa port ha. Php100 per way! E literally dadaanan mo lang yung lugar, ni di ka na uupo or something. Makikiraan ka lang, php100 agad. Tsk. Holdap.

Ewan ko nga ba. Ang mahal ng terminal fee sa port, di ba? Tapos nung nag-island-hopping kami meron pang php20/pax na snorkelling fee. Tapos pag nag-atv/buggy ride, me bayad din sa view point na php50 & php60. Kami, dun lang sa Ocean Tower umakyat, php50 ang "entrance" daw, pero pagdating dun wala naman nakalagay na me entrance fee. Meron kami nakasabay na group of friends nakipag-away pa sa taga-dreamland kasi nga di daw sinabi sa kanila beforehand na me babayaran pang additional.

^ di ko pa na-try personally sa Boracay Regency, pero usually naman sa hotels free na ang bata esp 2-yrs old pa lang naman, as long as di sya magre-require ng separate bed.

Sa mga pupunta ng Boracay, ito yung iexpect nyong transpo costs and additional fees pagdating:

We flew in from Manila via Caticlan.
Php50 - tryk from Caticlan airport to jetty port (good for up to 3pax na to)
Php100 - per person. Terminal fee sa jetty port (mahal!!)
Php75 - per person. Environmental fee babayaran sa jetty port
Php25 - per person. Boat fare
Php100 - tryk from Cagban port to your hotel/resort (special trip, 3pax na kami dito)

Snorkelling fee: php20/person (kung maga-islandhopping kayo)
On top of ATV rental: php60/person entrance fee for butterfly farm yata yun (di na kami pumunta dito)
            Php50/person entrance fee sa Ocean Tower (maganda view, better than sa Mt. Luho, IMO, pero namamahalan pa rin ako sa "entrance fee" kuno)

Pauwi, we took our flight from Kalibo.
Php100 - tryk from resort/hotel to Cagban port (3pax na kami dito)
Php25 - per person. Boat fare
Php175 - per person. Van fare from Caticlan port to Kalibo airport (me nagbebenta na sa Cagban port)
Php100 - per person. Terminal fee sa Cagban port (mahal!! E kung tutuusin, literal na nakikiraan ka lang)
Php40 - per person. Terminal fee sa Kalibo airport
