Some quick info about Boracay Island in the Philippines
Boracay is part if the goup of islands called Viayas. The province it is part of, is called Aklan.
The climate is tropical. Best travel time is between November and end of May.
The climate is motly dry in that time. Of course there’s the odd rainshower and due to the climatchange this happens more often now, than in the “good ol’ days”.
From around June the rainy season starts. Taifuns cross the islands ant it can get quite uncomfortable.
The langauage is called “Tagalog”. Most Filippinos though speak English. Even little children do. So it’s easy to get around.
Talking about getting around. Boracay has an airport. It is not exactly located on the island, but in Caticlan, which is a 15 minutes boat ride away from the island. International flights up until now land in Kalibo. The bus ride from there to Caticlan takes about two hours.
In Boracay itself you can get around by trycicle or even just walk along the beach. The island is small and every place is within reach.
The prices of most everything are – compared to the rest of the Philippines, very high.
It can happen, that you buy two scoops of icecream in a restaurant for 350,- Pesos and the waitress that serves it with a smile, will only earn 260,- Pesos for working a whole day.
Knowing that, you might be prepared to leave a generous tip – also knowing, how much it can mean.
Hotels and other places to stay, you’ll find plenty. Resorts right on the white beaches are not really cheap. If you want a cheap holiday, Boracay Island maybe is not the right place to go. They say, it is the most expensive place in the Philippines.
