#774 - Boracay 2016 Day 5 and 6 - Boracay Information / Boracay Beach / Kalibo International Airport

This will be my last post on Boracay, just posting up the photos I took in the last 2 days in Boracay. 

We cleared all our activities by Day 4 and the second last day was spent walking around the island getting souvenirs, strolling along the beach w our guide’s friend, Eric and catching the sunset. The last day was a “burnt” one because of the early departure flight timing and the travelling time from Boracay to Kalibo Airport (Bus is 2 hours and Ferry is 10mins) itself.

Read my other Boracay entries below:

To summarise, we spent 6D5N in Boracay (27th May – 1st Jun) and we did 7 activities (ATV/Helmet Dive/Island Hopping/Parasailing/Parawsailing/Zipline/Flyfish) over a span of 3 days. Personally, I think if you are doing less activities, 3 or 4 days would be enough because there aren’t many other activities to do! By the way, due to the available number of flights to Kalibo as well as the travelling time to and from the island, the first and last days are usually “burnt”.

For this trip, I changed SGD350 (PHP11200, exchange rate was 32), which to be honest wasn’t enough. The activities cost me PHP4500 (which is around SGD140), so that leaves me w SGD190 to last for the 6 days. It is clearly not enough if you want to eat at the restaurants there every day. I think for 2 nights, I had instant noodles for dinner and if you read my entries, most of the time we didn’t have proper lunch, it’s either we had a heavy breakfast that lasted us till late afternoon, or we did late lunch/early dinner together. If you are also including massage and shopping, please change more or activate your card!

Other expenses would be for taking transport to Caticlan Jetty from the airport, paying of ferry ticket, environmental and admission fee of PHP75 and terminal fee to Boracay Island* and terminal fee before leaving Kalibo International Airport on the last day.

*We only had to pay PHP250 for our transport to the jetty as the rest were complimentary thanks to our hotel!! It covers the boat transfer going to Boracay jetty, environmental and terminal fee, and shuttle going to the hotel. Else, the last I checked, it was PHP600 for all. Getting to your hotel is not included in the PHP600 of course.

Please remember to set aside PHP700 for terminal fee at Kalibo International Airport on the last day!
Don’t spend until you do not have PHP700 for payment hahaha. When we did our research for Boracay, many blog entries have “warned” us of this so we were aware. When you first touched down at Kalibo International Airport, you will be given a slip of paper informing you of this as well.

Okay enough words, let me fill the entry with some photos.

As usual, I need to start this entry with a photo of our complimentary hotel breakfast hahaha.

We met with Eric as mentioned earlier. He brought us around the shopping areas so we could get souvenirs for our family/friends.

Er I got irritated w my peeling gelish I plucked them off lol.

We walked towards Station 3 and found this 4-star hotel standing alone haha. It's one of the more premium accomodation in Boracay. We saw lots of Caucasians nearby! It was quieter here compared to Stations 1 and 2.

Caught the sunset!

Went back to the henna tattoo area to touch up our tattoo hehe.

View of Coast (where Blue Marina Hotel is under) where we walked to have our breakfast everyday.

They have charging ports in 7-11!

And uh hi, this is our dinner for the last night! Seriously spent till our last penny! My plan was to have McDonald's but I didn't have any pesos left hahaha. Didn't want to change money too, as the exchange rate was bad and there aren't many legit money changers there.

Last day of having sumptuous breakfast!!

Coast is a nice place to stay in to I'd think! They have a pool and benches. The prices are slightly more expensive than their sister boutique hotel, Blue Marina Hotel (the one we are staying in)

Benches right in front of the hotel too. Would recommend staying here. :)

One of the views I missed is this.

This... is how small Kalibo International Airport is. We are waiting to board at the place where I took this photo lolol.

Anyway, w this, it marks the end of my Boracay travelogue! This means I can move on and blog about my New Zealand entries soon! I am quite excited about it because New Zealand has many nice sceneries to offer and I can't wait to share them w everyone. :)
