Snorkeling is one of the first activities in Boracay that has became very popular in the early years. I first experience it on my very first trip to Boracay in 2010. Actually, a lot of my firsts happened on that trip. I had my very first Henna Tattoo, my first Snorkeling, and most of all my first time to fly!

Helmet Dive

If you wondered how it feels to walk on the ocean floor, you can stop now. Because you can actually do it in Helmet Diving when you visit Boracay. I've heard so much about this activity that I wanted to try it myself. 

Trick Art Museum

Trick Art Museum for me is what completed my adventure in Boracay. It's amazing and wished I can bring my nephews and nieces there.

Smoke Restaurant

Beef Salpicao - Php150.00
One of my friends is a frequent visitor of Boracay Island and she served as our guide. She knows where to have good food within our allocated budget.

Crystal-clear water at Carabao Island
It's true what they say that your Boracay adventure experience will not be complete without this activity! Island Hopping is one of the first and old activities they offered in Boracay. Known for its "White Beach" and other  beautiful and unspoiled beaches. You can't settle yourself with just the "White Beach, you must try the island hopping to complete your vacation in Boracay.

Happy Dreamland Theme Park

Happy Dreamland Theme Park is said to be the first and only theme park in the Visayas Region. It can become one of the reasons why people from the nearest provinces visit Boracay.  

Bite Club

This restaurant is loved by many for their unique and delicious snack. Even with a full stomach from our late lunch, I made sure we try the food here.

ATV and Buggy Car Ride

If you want to experience a more adventurous activity, then try ATV or Buggy car. This activity requires your instincts and reflexes. This fun ride is a really enjoyable for me since I love riding a motorbike. It's a piece of cake for me.

Sky Cycle

Sky Cycle that is said to be the first in the Philippines can be found in Happy Dreamland Theme Park in Boracay Island. I'll never know that there's a themed park in Boracay if it's not because of the ATV Ride. We were able to ride it for free because of the package we got.

Gerry's Grill Boracay

Gerry's Grill is one of the largest group of restaurants in the Philippines. It' s the favorite hangouts for people who love sports and to drink. They have live streaming of basketball.

How to Get to Kalibo from Boracay

I posted guides on how to get to Boracay Island from Kalibo, but some of you might want to know how to go back.  Here's how:

If your hotel is located at the White Beach, you will need to walk up to the nearest street where the pedicabs are parked. There's a designated terminal for tricycles to bring you to the port, so you have to take the pedicab. The last time we were there, the pedicabs are parked near MacDonald's. Fare per person is Php20.00 and only takes less than 5 minutes.

How to Get to Boracay from Caticlan Airport

Caticlan (Boracay) Airport is the nearest airport to Boracay Island. Most of the tourist prefer to fly here for ease and convenience. However, due to the small size of this airport's runway, only turboprop is allowed to land here.

Before you leave the airport and head to Boracay, you have to register first in the tourist counter located just beside the exit. You will be asked here also to pay the ticket for the tricycle and pump boat going to the island. We paid for a total of Php235.00 for 3 people.

Tricycles terminal just outside the airport

Tricycle terminal is located just in front of the airport and very easy to spot. Show the driver your ticket and he knows where to take you. When I first visited Boracay in May 2010, we were taken to the Caticlan Jetty Port, but this time were taken to the Tabon Jetty Port. I found out that they do this because of the weather condition.

Caticlan Jetty Port

Before you enter the port, you must pay the environmental and admission fee of Php75.00 per person. I was glad when we visited because there's no more terminal fee of Php100.00. After you paid, you can head now to the banca (pump boat).  There are boatmen who will assist you onto the boat. If you have heavy luggage, you can ask one of the porters to help you with a tip.

The boat is not exclusive for tourist only. Locals also use this boat going home to the island, so you have to be very patient. There are two ports in Boracay Island, the Cagban Port and Tambisaan Port.  They use either of these two ports depending on the weather condition.

Banca (Pump boats) at the Caticlan Jetty Port

When it's Habagat (Monsoon) and low season they use Tambisaan port. During summer and peak season, they use the Cagban Port.  When we visited last July 2014, we were dropped off at the Tambisaan Port. Sailing take more or less than 15 minutes.

Please take note that the port in Tambisaan has no bridge or anything so you'll step out from the boat to the sand and there's a possibility that your feet will get wet.

Just outside the port, there are tricycles there that will take you to the White Beach. Fare is Php100.00 per ride. You can ask the driver to drop you off at the main road near your hotel, so it's not very far when you walk. Travel time takes more or less 10 minutes.  

If you don't want to walk very far and there's an available pedicab (trike), you can hire one. Fare is Php20.00 per person. You can always follow the tourists or ask for direction when you think you are lost.  Keep in mind that Boracay is a very popular place so you have to expect traffic.

Please share if you think this is helpful. :)
