|Boracay is a tropical island paradise famous for its white sand, blue-green waters, serene beach and night life. Interestingly, the place is also very convenient -- with dozens of hotels, shops, night clubs and a market. It also only an hour by plane from Manila and four hours by car from Iloilo City.|
to do in Boracay
Ferries to the island depart from Caticlan. You can reach Caticlan either by plane or by land.
By plane. Many flights from around the country fly to Kalibo Airport, the larger airport 90 minutes away. But flights from Manila can take you directly to Caticlan, the local airport.
By land. Caticlan is a 4-5 hour drive from Iloilo City. Many locals prefer to take the Ceres Liner, a bus that leaves Iloilo several times a day, with Caticlan as its final destination.
Where to Stay
(Understanding the Stations)
Boracay is divided into stations. Before booking a hotel, understand where it is located. The rule of thumb is: the higher the station, the more populated (and affordable) the place should be. Hotels closer to the beach front are also generally more expensive.
Cash! ATMs are limited, so cash and travelers checks work best. Other than that, you can buy almost everything on the island -- food, clothes, groceries, cell phones, souvenirs.
