sunset in Boracay

super peaceful talaga ang feeling... i hope this will last forever

saya lang manood ng sunset =)
PARAW.. masaya itong gawin sa sunset or sunrise 

chillin =)

love my flower shots =)

Last time i visited boracay was way way back 2003..  i can still remmember how beautiful this island is however it was not that great during that time... there's so many trash and cigarette butts all over the place, it wasnt clean but i cant complain when it comes to the water and sand... super duper nice...

Since nagkaroon ng seat sale ang cebu pacific, my friends and officemates decided to booked a ticket going to boracay, im not that excited since i've been there but im more thrilled about the activities na gagawin namin dun specially the para sailing and the helmet diving.

Since we booked the trip April 1, 2010 and the travel date was Feb 16-19, 2011 it was worth all the wait... we even extended our stay since cebu pac decided to cancel r original trip so that would be an additional day for us to enjoy boracay..

We landed in caticlan and get off in kalibo.. (see a different posts for this airport) and we tooked a banca from jetty port going to cagban port. then a tricyle to boracay (100php good for 6 pax).

Pagdating namin sa port we r approached by different agents / commissioners para sa matutulugan and one lady mentioned the ERIKO's House which is the place i wanna stay for this trip. I dont usually booked my hotel room kasi i find it more cheap if i just booked it once i get there, wala namang bayad eh sila pa nga ang nagpay sa trike nila.   According to ate helen binabayaran naman sila ng mga hotel kaya okay lang kahit wala kami ibigay.

We check kung san mas mura at mas maganda, it was located in station 2 so its super close sa mga tindahan, bars and d'mall.. the beach was like 3minutes walk and the people here and staff was very friendly.  Eriko's is fully booked for the night that we want to stay but there rooms got a veranda which is very nice rates usually starts roughly at 2000 php and up (but syempre tawaran mo para mas ok).

Second stop was Jerome's Annex , extension sya ng JEROME BUNGALOW, it has a brand new rooms and the staff here are very accomodating, may free wifi, air conditioned rooms and hot and cold shower sila, we actually booked r last 2 nights with this hotel. Look for ate mary for more discounts . Rates starts at 1500 php and up (again tawad ever kayo).

ito si ate inday ng jeromes

Third stop was Madids inn.. we spent like 2 nights here, okay ung place and very helpful namn si kuya archie (manager ng madids) , mejo may kapalpakan ang rooms pero pwede ng pagtyagaan. rates starts from 1000 php and up..  

Settled the rooms,, now i need to check the activities... good thing my good friend mon gave me the number of kuya jun na naging contact nila sa boracay when he was there.  kuya jun was one of the best guides na nakilala ko when im out of town. his very very nice and he gave us a tremendous discounts..  i really like the services that this guy provided. his very accommodating and helpful i just cant complain.. I would definitely recommend his services.  Hindi nya kami iniwan, hinatid pa nga nya kami sa port just to make sure that we r safe and sound =)

My boracay experienced would not be the same if not for this people.

Thank you kuya jun for all the activities and tips. and syempre for the discounts.

Thanks ate mary for the rooms and discounts ikaw na ang pinagpala  =)
