Day 3: It's Time to Say Goodbye......Boracay

by lakwatserong tatay
It was July 3, the time we had to go back to reality, back to busy streets of Manila and overtime's at our work...Even though our vacation was not as long as the other vacationers, at least i could say to my self, i have already set my foot on Boracay Island. Few years back it was just a dream but now, i've stayed, enjoyed and leave this beautiful island and i know i will have the chance to go back again......^_^

We check out at around 1130am, paying php3000 for our 2days & 2nights stay...Ride a tricycle up to Cagban Port (Terminal Fee php50 & Passenger Ticket Fee php30). Our banca trip took almost 30 minutes due to waiting of passengers that time...maybe due to our departure at noontime...^_^.

After few minutes of waiting on the port, we started to board our motorized banca transfer to jetty port. This cruise would just take up to 15 minutes but if the waves are not at your side, i think you will took more longer time or your transfer would be cancelled...^_^

Of course, right after we boarded, wear our life vest, photo opps takes place again....and here are some of our shots i wanted to share...^_^....tingin ko alam ko na kung saan talaga ko ngmana...sa makulit kung tatay..check nyo sa baba...para lang makapagpapicture kahit pinagbawalan nah...hehehehe.....^_^
the happy trippers....
ang pasaway kong tatay...^_^
It was almost 12nn, when we arrived at Jetty Port of Caticlan, at first we planned to eat just outside this port, but my friend called that we could take our lunch on their place.....hmmmm....tipid mode...so we decided to travel fast. There are two options to reach Kalibo town proper for our destination, but the buses & van waiting outside this port automatically bring tourist to airport by their request. Fare for this transportation is bus (php105) and for van (php100 - we just haggled the price since the driver knew where are we going...hehehe...there charging us php120 that time...). Our trip to Caticlan would be almost 2 hours, so just sleep all over the road trip...^_^....

Around 130pm, we're dropped off to Pong's specified destination, and after 5 minutes Pong arrive and fetch us to their house in Kalibo.......and as we arrived the feast was already serve.......^_^....lahat ng gutom namin ay napawi sa mga oras nayun....obvious naman...^_^. We stayed at Pong's place for almost 3 hours, we just have chichating while drinking few bottles of liquour...ang kulit...buti nalang d kami halata nun nasa airport nah...hehehehe...
Our Sumptuous Lunch @ Solina's Residence
We departed Pong's place around 430pm, so we could have an hour gap from uur flight that is scheduled for 530 pm, and we decided to check in early, so we could have the chance to select our favorite seat...window seats....and to have some photo opps also....wahhhhh...namiss ko na naman un isa ko camera na nawala..huhuhuhuhu...

There's something i'd like to recommend to other tripper going to Boracay....for me it is a must have booklet when you will have your vacation in Boracay, because it has all the information from accomodation, services, places to go, what to do and anything about Boracay....."My Boracay Guidebook"...btw..this is from my sister-in-law...^_^.
Thanks to this Guide....^_^
And this ends my journey and adventures at Boracay, i do wish i could go back this year....^_^....

I have lived on Tourism in Boracay for 15 years and loved the place so much i built cohiba. These are the Biggest and Best value for money apartments on the island period ! Every apartment has stunning sea views and 30m2 to 40m2 balconies with which to enjoy it. We are overlooking the windsurfing / kitesurfing bay where the season goes from November to april. Its either a great sport to participate, or great to just sit on your huge terrace and watch.Apartments in Boracay

Thanks for sharing photos of your "dream-came-true" Bora vacation. I think the time you spent there is just right. As the saying goes, "It's not the quantity but the quality of time spent."
