2008-9-26-Boracay

Next stop in my journey across Philippines was the most famous and touristic spot in here, the island of BORACAY!! The name already sounds exotic as Bali, Tahiti or Fiji could sound. Is not only a nice and beautiful island where you can relax, but is also a party reference for holidays.  

As you might guess, since Philippines is a country composed of more then 7000 islands the fastest and more convenient way to travel is the plane, is pretty cheap and the schedule time is very well thought so that people could travel early in the morning and come back late in the evening. Our flight was at 5AM Friday, we were tired but with a smile thinking about the beach and the sun.

The weather forecast was not very optimistic, they said it would rain and it would be cloudy but when we arrived a rainbow was giving us the welcome to paradise!! 

Welcome to Boracay!!

Boracay is basically one long white beach divided by stations(1,2,3 being 1 the most expensive one). You can find really fancy resorts and very rustic ones, there is a good offer for all the pockets.  As you can see below in the map there are different areas but the most popular places are station 1,2,3.

 Bora Bora Boracay!! 

Station 2 Luxurious resort 

Zone 2 our resort. It costed about 4 euros per night with aircon and hammock.  

 That's life!!

The beach in Boracay is simply beautiful, it was my first time in a white beach and it was amazing to be able to be in this island considered as one of the most beautiful islands in the world.  

Where is my coco nut? 

Ohhh there it is!! 

I tried for the first time snorkling and although it is not the best place to practice it, I was amazed by the different kind of  fishes we could see just below us.

Snorkling was definitely fun!

Say "PA-TA-TA" !!

After all the activities during the day we went to what in Philippines they call Dampa or Palenque. Is actually a fish market with fresh seafood, you can buy very cheap fresh seafood and bring it to any of the nearby bars, they will cook it for you.

We are staaaarving, bring the food!!

A few days ago Jehan introduced me to one of his friends, he lives most of his time in Boracay and he promotes the island, he is also a musician and made a song called BORA BORA BORACAY, very famous in Philippines. With this song i leave you till the next adventure.

Smile please :)
