What Now?!: A Broke Girls’ Question in Boracay

Boracay Island offers various activities and all kinds of places for dining. Since we are following a budget, we’ve decided that our activities be limited and to choose food establishments that are reasonable in price.

The first thing we did when we arrived in this Island was to proceed to Station 1 to reserve slots in Ariel’s Point. Reservation is Php 500/pax.

One our first day at the island, aside from walking (which was our main activity) we have decided to go Paraw Sailing .

When you go to the beachfront men that offers activities. If you listen closely you would notice that their price might differ.

And then we meet Kuya Bryan…

Kuya Bryan offered us Paraw Sailing  or sunset sailing and this activity will be for about 30 minutes. The time of the sunset varies, but during this time of the year he said we can start at 5:00 pm since sun sets early. Paraw Sailing prices can vary depending on the person you are transacting with but in Kuya Bryan’s case you can get it between Php 250/pax  but you can always haggle.

The entire second day was spent at Ariel’s Point.the total price of the entire package is Php 1500/pax. This covers transfers from the island, unlimited beverage and of course the thrill of jumping off the cliff. We jumped the cliff on our second day.

And on our last day while walking on the beach we have decided to to Parasailing (is a recreational kiting activity where a person is towed behind a vehicle (usually a boat) while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that reminds one of a parachute, known as a parasail wing) definition is from wikipedia.com.  We boarded the speed boat and had to transfer to another speed boat to start our activity. I thought this activity is a piece of cake, but, after being up there for a 15 minutes you may feel dizzy. This activity starts at Php 550/pax and the prices may vary depending on the season.

Kuya Bryan helped arrange the paraw sailing and parasailing for us; if you have a chance to visit the island he can also arrange all sorts of activities for budget conscious  people like us. You can reach him through his number 0907-158-4671.

All shots were taken from a 5 megapixel camera; no editing was used in the pictures. That is how beautiful the island is (I just need to share that thought)
