The opportunity came when I booked last year for our flight to Boracay this April 10-13, 2011. The fare costs less than P2,000 for a round trip ticket per person. We flew to Boracay via Caticlan using the turbo prop plane and returned to Manila via Kalibo, which is about 2 hours away from Boracay.
That gave us some time to plan our trip. Searching through the internet, we booked a two night stay at the Orchids Resort for P792 per night. Their ad says that the place is a 1 minute walk to the beach but when we got there, with the turns along an alleyway, it seems like you won't make it in 1 minute even if you run, he he he. Anyway, all we needed was a place to stay for the night. The room we had was on the 2nd floor and had 2 single beds and a bathroom with hot shower.
After checking in, we immediately changed to our swimming outfits and headed out to the beach to watch the sunset and had a quick dip in the sea.
We didn't have to repeat the same place for meals due to the number of food establishments in Boracay. We've had pizza, and pasta Andok's liempo, batchoy, tapsilog, omelet, shawarma, jamaican patties, and buffet on our last night
