View Boracay Island in a larger map

This trip is dated April 2 - 3, 2011 which is a part of my March 31 - April 5, 2011 Iloilo-Boracay-Guimaras Trip. It started when we left Cabogao Gamay Island at 7:41 A.M. and arrived in Gigantes Island to transfer to a bigger boat at 8:11 A.M. We waited till 9:00 A.M. where the boat left Gigantes Island and arrived in Estancia Feder Port at 10:25 .AM. From the Port, we boarded a tricyle for P10 per head to Bayuyan Estancia Bus Terminal which was 10:58 to 11:02 A.M. We chartered to vans from Estancia to Roxas City where the travel was from 11:07 A.M. to 1:13 P.M. We chartered an 18-seater van from Roxas City to Caticlan with the travel lasted from 1:35 to 4:50 P.M.

From Caticlan Jetty Port, we arranged our trip to Boracay Island where we paid the following:

Boat fare - P25
Environmental fee - P75
Terminal Fee - P50

We boarded the boat from Caticlan to Boracay Port which lasted from 5:30 to 5:38 P.M. and finally, we checked in at Travellers' Inn in Station 3 which is a beach front though we have to board a tricycle from the Boracay Port to our resort with travel time took from 5:46 to 5:55 P.M. at P20 per head.

It was not really an exciting Boracay Trip for this is not my first time. I wanted to sleep early since I was so tired with the whole day travel transfers. We enjoyed shortly the vibrant night life of Boracay.

The following day, the only activity we had was a very short swim in the beach front and the rest was in the Helmet Dive costing P500 per head. However, recuperating from my ear infection, I did not join the helmet dive for it might aggravate my physical condition and severe my ear infection.

I did not enjoy the swimming because I cannot submerge my head in the water to avoid the entry of water in my infected left ear.

It was too hot in Boracay and there was Frisbee Competition with Derek Ramsay around and some celebrities which I did not bother to check. Korina Sanchez was there also to feature the Number One SPA in the Philippines.

We left Boracay at 4:39 P.M. and was in Caticlan Port at 4:48 P.M. We had a chartered 18-seater van from Caticlan to Iloilo City's Tagbak Bus Terminal with the travel duration from 5:19 to 11:18 P.M. From Tagbak Terminal, we chartered a jeepney going to Janiuay Municipality of Iloilo with travel duration from 11:28 P.M. to 12:16 Midnight where we settled for an overnight in Farida Sedillo's uncle's house.
