Why does this say getting wet and wet? Because half of the time we spent in Boracay, it was raining! But that did not stop us from having some wet fun under the sun!
1. Watched poi dancers
These ladies and gents that danced poi were intense! One lady with a long hair almost got her hair singed when the wind blew. It was exciting to watch the glow of the fire against the backdrop of the setting Boracay sun.
|That lady in the left side almost got into a very bad YouTube video entitled "This girl is on fire (literally)"|
I am water-averse. So this was done by my sisters. My mum and I just stayed by the lounge chairs, swapping stories. They had fun with the warm, blue water.
|Too bad it was overcast, the waters woul've been bluer|
This was the most enjoyable for me as I got to experience the beach without actually getting wet. Teehee. So many things to see on the boat and the water was soooo clear, you could see way, way down! And there were a lot of trees on the islands we passed by that had bats sleeping on them. Both creepy and cool at the same time.
|Obviously I really liked this part of the trip with all the pictures uploaded for this.|
This was one exhilarating ride! How do you do this?
The manong will let you ride this inflatable bed-like thing tied to a speedboat that will speed up to a level that will take the inflatable "raft" that you are riding up in the air!
|Pics by this point are all looking very misty as our camera was ensconced in a waterproof bag|
And all 3 of us still on the ride, instead of helping her out, were laughing at her. That is true sisterhood, ladies and gents.
|We eventually helped her out of the waters though. Lest my dad scold us for being too mean.|
Even if I did not snorkeled with my sisters, I could see the fishies while on the boat. That was how clear the water was.
|See. So clear.|
|Look at those fishies!!!|
Nothing is as relaxing as watching the water lapping through the sands while thinking about world domination.
And thanks to these portable, on the go cocktails from OneBar, we were able to drink while walking from station 2 to 1.
|Mojito for moi and long island iced tea for dad|
We are 5 girls in my family, of course shopping was done in days 2 and 3 of our stay. Boracay offers so many shopping options, from the folks selling their fares as you walk along the stretch of the beach, to the D’Mall.
Insider tips:· You need to bring some cash when you do island-hopping, you will stop by the Puka beach where you can buy some cool finds
· Buy one of those water pouches. They are cheap, around Php 80 only. This will allow you to post in Twitter, FB and Instagram in the middle of the godknowswhere. AWE-SOME
· The most helpful website for all my Boracay needs was My Boracay Guide. Some Boracay tourism folks were handing out hard copies of these guides on the place itself when we were boarding the boat to Boracay. They even have an app!
That concludes my Boracay package series of posts! Did you have fun? I know I did! I have so many more travel posts to share, but I will have to find time to pen them in my blog... I promise, they are coming soon!
