A big part of your activity in IloIlo is to check out the old churches around the city. The Jaro Cathedral is one of them and I think one of the most accesible churches around.

In going to Boracay, one alternative cheap fare tips would i suggest. Indeed, planes would be more expensive going back route to Cebu bound from Caticlan airport. But, just an experienced, we prefer van for hire going to Ilo-ilo City then boat to Cebu rather than booked an aircraft. We arrived at Ilo-ilo port around 5:30pm. while waiting on board, we go to their city preferably at Jollibee to buy foods for dinner. The regular fare is 750.00 but luckily, we discounted the price at only P500.00 each person then much we saved a P500.00 since we are two.
