* change your dollars in Manila before heading to the island, you'll get more for your money.


Left Manila on flight 015 at 10:30 am, and touched down in Caticlan 35 mins later, took a trike to the pantalan (port jetty terminal) took a banka (motorized boat) to the island of Boracay. Called Mar (driver of Laguna de Boracay) from Station 3, he fetched us and off we went to Laguna de Boracay Resort (RCI Member), located on the kiteboarding side of the island.

Funny, the new D' Mall Plaza reminds me of Eastwood mall - we were able to try Mongkok,
Gastof's, Bite Club, Cafe del Mar, Leibevoll's Pizza and Pasta, Andok's, Pier One, Jonah's Fruit Shakes (which are to die for), FIC is already in Boracay!

Interesting things to do:
Shoppin' for goodies, kiteboarding, windsurfing, banana boat rides, flyfish rides, jetski & motorboat rentals, para-sailing. Sight-seeing to the following places: bat cave, butteryfly
garden or the butterfly farm, eco-tour to Camp Puka Bora, visit the turtle nesting grounds.
Scuba diving and snorkeling at the various locations for live coral gardens. If you miss the manila life - the Boracay Regency has a disco! And of course who can forget the trip around the island in a motorized bangka.

One of the newer things to see is Boracay Butterfly Garden, Bolabog Beach - just a couple
of minutes from the Laguna de Boracay gate. Cost is 50 PHP for locals, and 100 for tourists.

When we got home, we had lunch at the fort - at a very nice restaurant called Filos. A very nice ending to a wonderful vacation!
