additional question:

is it much better to book just one night and then canvass for the next night when you're already there in boracay in a month like march?

thanks! ^_^

You can try Tan's guesthouse - http://www.tghboracay.com/. It is located on station 2, very accessible to all places. Also, it is near beach front (unlike other places that says their place is just 5-10mins away from the beach front. well, it depends on how fast you walk!) They have breakfast included too!

Yeah... you can try to book a night and then scout from there. There are a lot of places that you can stay there that is not online. If you are really on tight budget, you can also try those pension houses on station 3. But it is quite far from where the action is :)

March is a very busy time of year in Boracay but it is never 100% fully booked. Your best bet for budget accommodation is in the Angol area, south of boat station 3. Ask your tricycle driver to drop you at the bottom of Angol Road by Tree House Resort and you can look around the various options.
Tree House has a dorm for P300 per night, but if this is not to your liking, check LM Cottages, which are opposite Tree House.
Aside from those places, turn right at the bottom of the road and explore down the various little alleyways off the beach pathway. Some places to look for are Ocean Breeze Inn, Moreno's, Roy's Rendezvous, Melinda's Garden and Orchids Resort, amongst others.

If your priority in visiting Boracay isn't to hang in a mall or be in the most crowded area, you won't find this area "too far". A ten minute stroll on the beach (or 3 minute motorbike ride) takes you to the busiest part of the beach near station 2. The beach there is very crowded with tourists, vendors, sponsored events and general mayhem, and loud noise pollution till 4am or later!

thanks a lot sirenna! nice to see u here again. i will check out those resorts. what about tan's and taj guesthouse? are they ok?

Re: without a place to stay yet on march 20-22.. help please

by sirenna

I don't have any experience of those places. Best to look at some online reviews from their previous guests.

Re: without a place to stay yet on march 20-22.. help please

I reccommend Smoke Restaurant, which has two outlets in the mall.

Travel Tips for Boracay Island

Starbucks?! REALLY?!!

by shohman

Ok, I am a coffee freak and I generally try to frequent independent coffee houses, but I quickly found that in most of the Philippines, the coffee is so bad, so disgusting, so vile, that a safe bet is to find a Starbucks if possible. Most coffee I found was instant and the lack of non-powdered milk/cream is upsetting.
At Starbucks, at least you know what you are getting. One warning, if you don't like sugar be sure to ask, as they often assume you will take it and add way too much. walk down white beach, the sign for Starbucks is hard to miss

Hang out with the locals

by syllybabe

We were walking along the beach one day and went further up north using the walk to Diniwid beach. It was a weekday on a school month but we were quite surprised to find many local children frolicking in the water and lots of families having picnics on the beach. The water looked so inviting that we stopped for a swim and while we were drying off, struck a conversation with a family who told us it was a holiday which was why the kids were not in school. We were invited to stay for a barbecue and several rounds of rhum and coke. Not only did we have fun, we made new friends :-)

It's better to be prepared!

by mojacko

A back pack or small gym bag. Travel light. It's easier to get on & off the boat walking down a narrow plank without having to balance a whole load of stuff. Sandals and slippers. Shorts. Some people are already in swimwear when they ride the plane. Not a bad idea. You wil get wet to your knees.
Sarongs are very useful there. 1)Insect repellant. While I personally did not have any insect problems, I saw a young French boy who had large mosquito bites on his face. He didn't seem to mind, though.
2) First -aid kit. Just in case you go on an island tour and get a few scrapes. If you plan to go snorkelling, a disposable underwater camera!
Lots of film or a good digital camera. There will be lots of photo opportunities. Frisbees and voleyballs. Floating toys for the little ones. A map. I just downloaded a map from bluemaroon.com and that had most of the resorts and restos on white beach.
Buy purified water before you get here. It's overpriced on the island.

Cheapest Tequila Drink!

by cruelsan

If you're out to find cheap drinks, don't miss Shenna's in station 2. They serve very cheap tequila -- about PhP60.00 (US$1.50) per order. The tequila comes in a small wine glass, so it's actually equivalent to about 2-2.5 shots! You'll get wasted in no time ;)

Carabao

by sirenna

The carabao (Asian Water Buffalo) is supposed to be the national animal of the Philippines, and if you or hiking or biking around the island you may come across one wallowing around in a muddy field.
They are commonly used in farming - as draught animals in rice fields - and are sometimes eaten.
