This is the main road.
This is the main road from the ferry station to the beach. Narrow and busy, generally, it is safe because the speed is not too high. It took this picture in the tricycle. If you need to transportation ,just stand beside on the street, wave the tricycle to pick up up
My daughter really wanted to ride a horse so we went to the stables. Since neither of us knew how to ride we paid for a handler to lead our horses. They took us on a one hour tour up to Mt. Luho for some spectacular views. Along the way, my daughter and were able to see the locals in their communities. Wear shoes if you brought them.
Bat cave at Yapak
You can go down inside a bat cave in the village of Yapak. It's a dark, humid, smelly place to be! Be careful when you step because the rocks can be rather slippery. I suggest taking a flashlight with you. The caves are full of thousands of bats and are really a sight to behold :) In the early evening after the sun goes down the bats fly out of the cave in huge numbers!
Bargain Prices for Boracay Souvenirs
The original talipapa was burned down a year ago , much publicized due to questionable source of fire. The new talipapa is just before Boat Station 3, its a tiny alley leading to the area with more than 50 stalls, selling Boracay T-Shirts, Boracay famous lamps, souvenir items, sarong etc.
The price of souvenir items is much much lower than on the stores found along D'Mall and on busy White Beach, you can bargain esp if you are buying several items.
Better go there early in the morning, when all the store keeper are looking for their "buena mano customer", they will definitely give you a good price, as a sign of good luck for them.
Ref magnets that is shaped as fish, octupus,dolphins or starfish (labelled with Boracay), all carved from wood are fast selling at 6 pcs for 100 pesos.
The biggest size of Boracay lamps, made of printed cloth is selling at 200 pesos. We are able to bargain up to 170 pesos per piece, if buying a set (2 pieces).
For the smallest lamp, original price is 25 pesos each, but you can bargain up to 3 pieces for 50 pesos.
No limits. Just bring plenty of cash
