Boracay- Antique (Day trip) 

Boracay

This was my second visit to Boracay. I was in the island last July with Jacob and spent most of our time just relaxing and enjoying the beach. Also, it was a more organized visit which also made me realized that I got ripped off buy paying the arranged transfers from the Caticlan Airport to Boracay Island for 550 PHP per person hahaha. Don’t be too judgmental people! , I decided to pay it because that was our first time and I actually did not do enough research plus , I am with a foreigner which has a big possibility of whining when things go south hahaha so for the sake of convenience we paid the hefty transfer.

If you want to travel cheap from the Caticlan airport you can just pay your around 290 PHP (5-6 USD) including the Terminal fees and the environmental fee at the port.

Tricycle Airport – Port : 50 PHP

Terminal Fee :100 PHP

Environmental Fee: 75 PHP

Banca to Boracay: 25 PHP

Tricycle to Beach/Accommodation : 20 PHP ( Shared)

This time, I am travelling solo so I decided to stay in a backpackers hostel in Station 02 and stayed in a shared room with 4 people and that’s when the fun begins! Not the kind of fun you might be thinking tho hahaha. I paid 430 PHP (8-9 USD) per night with breakfast ( a wee toast , egg and coffee) at Boracay Backpackers. It was my first time booking a dormitory since most of the time I am willing to spend a little more to have my own room, but this time just out of curiosity I decided to book a shared room which to my surprise, it was a mix accommodation! . I walked in to the room with an English couple staying with me. At first, it was a bit awkward and their English accent is making me dizzy.

Day Trip from Boracay to Atique.

Since I a booked a round trip flight to/from Boracay, I decided to just do a day trip to Antique and joined an organized tour with Clark from IslandTrekker which is one of the tour operators in Boracay for 2,500 PHP ( 50 USD) inclusive of all entrance fees, transportations , breakfast and lunch. To my surprise there only 4 of us on the tour which is very great since we have the van all to ourselves.

First stop

Malumpati Cold spring/ Bugang River

Good spot for swimming and tubing. 

Also, if you want to try diving the 40 meters deep lagoon , kinda creepy. 


Malalison island – Second stop

It is recommended that you start trekking before noon time, it is darn hot up there and you better be fit if you want to survive lol.

As per manong  tour guide and kuya Domino , whenever the sky is clear and no clouds are covering the mountians facing Malalison, 14 waterfalls are visible, Imagine how cool is that! 


Thank you to these wonderful people, made my trip super fun😊 

Kawa hot bath and bugtong  bato falls.

After getting toast hiking in Malalison , now time to enjoy this cold waterfalls. 

Our last stop… Kawa hot bath

 It was actually very relaxing, feels like i’m  ready to be served after! They basically will make you sit in a warm bath with some flowers and leaves in it! Smells  nice, and oh, it has gingers and lemon grass too! I wonder if I  will be a tasty soup after haha
