I have been to the one of the best beaches in the world last 2010 and told myself that “I shall return.” And I’m back not only to fulfill my promise but also to witness a union of two souls who themselves holds Boracay a special place in their hearts.
Unlike on our previous trip, we stayed for 2 nights in Kalibo and slept on the following accommodations:
Garcia Legaspi Mansion – along Roxas Avenue atop BPI Bank with contact no. 09173080585
Avenue 5 Hotel – also along Roxas Avenue atop RCBC Bank with contact no. 09984357806
We have chosen these two accommodations because they are both walking distance going to Sto. Niño Church. The van terminal going to Caticlan is also located in between these two places. Fare is only P100 compared to P250 if you’re coming from the airport. Tricycle fare going to airport is at P100 per trip. Airport Terminal Fee is also P100.
In Boracay, we stayed at Isla Del Mar – Station1 with contact no. 09177945097. The wedding was held at Sto. Rosario Church (the only Catholic Church on the island) and reception followed at Estacio Uno.
For our other expenses from Caticlan Jetty port to Boracay:
Boat Fare – P25
Environmental Fee – P75
Terminal Fee – P100
Tricycle to and from the Boracay Port costs P100 per way
(Note: you need to pay another terminal fee aside from the boat fare going back to Jetty Port from Boracay)
Special mention to Kuya Yrel Meneses with contact no. 09476444635 the driver of the van who suggested Avenue 5 Hotel and to Kuya Marlo De Ocampo with contact no. 09104174120 for the Boracay activities. For van rental and boracay activities, you may call these two persons. Kuya Marlo by the way is also from Carabao Island so you can ask him for a boat rental.
