My Boracay Summer 2018 6-Day Itinerary

Comment 1 Standard

Probably you are wondering why of all the places to go this summer, why did I choose Boracay despite of the negative issues? Well, I already planned this trip as early as August and I already have booked our roundtrip flights and transfers via BPHT.  Boracay is one of my favorite summer destinations– the primary reason why I decided to have the our 6-day summer vacation there is the awesome powdery white sand beach.  There is something enigmatic with this paradise– something unexplainable that makes me keep coming back.

Supposedly, I have an important even scheduled on the 30th of April, but it was rescheduled due to some problems.  Since the trip was already prepared, all I need is to enjoy this long vacation before I finally face work this summer.

I would like to take advantage of our long stay, that is why 3 different hotels were lined up for my hotel review.  Here is the 6-day itenerary for my summer vacation.

April 29, 2018

-Depart from Manila to Caticlan

I chose to have a morning flight to enjoy the rest of the day.  This time, not only hubby and I will travel, but my family members as well.  They will be in another plane via Kalibo in the afternoon.

Boracay Activities with BPHT (The Island Hopping Experience)

Comment 1 Standard

Our Boracay 2017 Getaway is the best that I had ever because I carefully planned about it.  I  scheduled the Boracay activities on our 3rd day because I wanted to have all the time for ourselves and to feel relaxed on our last day.   We started with the zipline at 10am then we headed to Station 2 with Armel (our Guide from BPHT) and waited for our private boat.

Island hopping is really recommended for those who would like to explore and enjoy Boracay.  Before, I didn’t want to engage in this activity- I felt like this is a waste of time but thanks to BPHT my perspective has changed.   

You can opt to book this by group (with other tourists) — or you can have a private boat.  I prefer having a private boat so you can control your time.  You can even  tell the boatman which places would you like to visit and you don’t have to wait for the other passengers.    You can bring your own lunch because the free lunch buffet is only for group island hopping.  We bought lunch in Andok’s and just had lunch when the boat stopped by Crocodile Island.

The sight of the tranquil sea made me forget all my troubles even for just a while.  I felt like a kid again– amazed to see the different attractions.

I chose not to stop by Crystal Cove anymore because it will consume our time (but I promise that I will be back!) ; instead, we just had a tour enjoyed the different places.

We were amazed to see vendors in the sea:  first one was the coconut vendor.  We bought 3 pieces of coconuts for P100.

The second one that we saw was the ice cream vendor.

When we were near Crocodile Island, we stopped by to snorkel.  At first, I was hesitant to jump into the water but the boatmen assured me that I will be safe.   I saw the amazing view under the sea- the coral reefs and the colorful fishes.   






Our last destination was the Puka Beach- it is smaller than the White Beach but the sand is not as fine as what they have there.

We lined up just to take photos here- a proof that we have been in Puka Beach!

After that, we had a 15 minute swim before we finally go back to the boat.

My Boracay Activities with BPHT (The Zipline Experience)

Leave a comment Standard

Last year, we were able to have a hassle-free and convenient roundtrip transfers to Boracay via BPHT (Boracay Philippines Hotel and Transportation).  As much as I would like to book their services again in our Boracay Trip last week, the package we had with Discovery Shores already include the roundtrip transfers.  Operating in their second year in the travel and booking industry,  BPHT has already mastered the craft of offering topflight service to their customers.  They are not only specializing in booking roundtrip transfers but also hotel accommodations and Boracay activities.  

In our 4d/3n stay in the island,  we have opted to include Boracay activities on our third day.  Our first schedule for the day was the zipline and cable car.  We were picked up in the hotel by Armel, a BPHT representative  and he escorted us to the Happy Planet van.

We went up and selected our pink head gears while hubby is paying the rental of Go Pro (P300) at the booth.

I fell in love with the awe-inspiring view and all my fears disappeared.  All I wanna do that moment was to FLY and be a superhero for few minutes.

And so, we were assisted by the Happy planet staff and prepared us for the zipline ride.  I was surprised that even my 10 year-old daughter wasn’t afraid to fly at all!  It was indeed an experience I would never forget.

When we have reached the end, I thought that we were going to bump the trees, hehehe!  But then the staff assured us we that flying with them is totally safe.  We climbed up the stairs and had the cable car ride.  It is kinda slow but still relaxing (though not as exciting as the zipline).
