I Traveled to Boracay

A Complete Guide to Traveling Boracay

A Complete Guide to Traveling Boracay

It was in 2012 when I first experienced falling in love with a stranger. It was a weird feeling, beautiful and unexpected. It was the kind of feeling that despite the pain, you’d still want to experience it again.   and again and again.

Sunsets and Romance at the Spiderhouse Boracay

It was a harsh yellow color, setting in the horizon. But it was pure and perfect.  I sat on one of the comfy beach chairs at the corner of the cool, wooden restaurant/bar/party place of beautiful, nearly isolated Diniwid Beach. In one hand, I held onto a San Mig Light Beer, my favorite beer. And on the other, I held the hand of someone special. We looked back at the setting sun. Not speaking. Not doing anything, except for our entwined hands. And as the sun disappeared into the horizons and in its wake, a magnificent burst of colors in the sky, our lips touched. It was my perfect date.

The Unexpected Charm of Mango Ray Resort, Boracay

The Unexpected Charm of Mango Ray Resort, Boracay

In Boracay, there is the upscale and then the midscale… and then the noscale. Just kidding. But there are accommodations in Boracay that can cost about Php 200 (Boracay Treehouse at Station 3.5), Php 600 (dorm at Frendz Resort in Station 2)  or up to Php 4000++ for upscale resorts like Discovery Shores, Fridays, Tides and more. Then, there are those cute designed beach chalets, the ones made out of nipa huts, similar to Nigi Nigi and Frendz. Adorable, because you feel so cool with all those trees. And there are also those traditional, classy(?), elegant hotels that are simply made out of buildings, simple colored paint and expensive furniture. Sure, they have the best aircon, possibly good food and good services. But where can you go that can give you both the good amenities, good food and the good atmosphere? Mango Ray Resort.

The Fire Dancers of Boracay – A Treat From Sandbar

Have you ever truly watched a fire dance? And no, I don’t mean watching from outside the tent or peeking through the closed off fabric that hides away the dancers from the non-paying crowd. I mean actually watch it. Go inside the tent, have a few beers and watch the whole show from the start to the finish? Well, if you haven’t, then you’re sorely missing a lot. And you tell yourself you’ve been to BORACAY?  Noooooo! 

5 Things You Must Do in Boracay

5 Things You Must Do in Boracay

Okay. So this post is kind of lame because you probably have a different list of 10,000 things to do in Boracay. However, you and I both know that we’re different. The last time I went to Boracay in 2010, all I wanted was to get drunk and… well, get drunk. But when I went back this 2012, I realized a few things and saw Boracay in a different light. A huge part of my current outlook came from the fact that in the two years that had passed, I had grown to be quite different from the girl who got wasted 2 years ago. So, instead of going all teenage drunk this time around, I did 5 things in Boracay that I never really thought I would do.

Zuzuni Boutique and Hotel Restaurant

Zuzuni Boutique and Hotel Restaurant

Kalí óreksi! Class, delicious food and a gorgeous beachfront are the main reasons for visiting Zuzuni Boutique Hotel and Restaurant. But that’s not all, Zuzuni Boracay offers an amazing menu of Greek food! To further understand my appreciation for this restaurant, I’ve never tasted any other kind of cuisine except for Filipino, Italian and the cuisine in Papua New Guinea, which wasn’t much. I am also a very selective food critique as I can become picky when it comes to food. The night before our dinner, we had already seen the restaurant from the outside, we went past it while walking around Stations 1 and 2. Even so, I didn’t get much look except for their signboard above the façade of the restaurant. From the outside, Zuzuni Boracay’s restaurant outstood the surrounding stores and restaurants. The gold yellow light from the inside are very friendly to the eyes and portrays a warm, homey atmosphere. Although small with only some tables aligned to one wall, the interior design of the restaurant was very smart with the mirrors acting as a medium to create the vision of space. The sofas were soft and inviting, the cream color dashing to the soft light from the candles lit on the tables. We met the manager, Ms. Aileen Cabrera who chatted with us and introduced
