2 Celebrations in Boracay

Mac's birthday falls on the same day as my parent's anniversary. This year, the whole family celebrated in Boracay.

I booked our tickets in April (one month before the trip) and got the cheapest flights from Manila-Caticlan. Our total ticket price is 3,676.00 per person with a Cebu Pacific flight out and Air Philippines flight back to Manila. We were hesitant with the flights at first because we've heard of horror stories of delayed flights. Fortunately, both our flights left and arrived on time. Good job to the two airlines.

We chose to stay at Fairways and Bluewater Resort since they have a private beach far away from the noise of White Beach in Boracay. Our parents enjoyed the exclusivity and quiet of the resort. However, for the younger people who want to party and be in the night scene of Boracay, this resort is not recommended because it's far and you would have to take a shuttle from the resort to D'Mall. They have free shuttles though that leave every hour from 9:00am to 10:00pm.
We stayed at the BalaiHaira villas which costs around 7,000 on a regular rate. We got a package cost of just 3,600/person for a 3 days and 2 nights stay inclusive of breakfast and an hour of full body massage. It was quite a steal already.
The room was spacious. It can fit 4 people although there is an additional fee per head in excess of 2 people
We enjoyed the private beach which was very calm as compared to the big waves in White Beach since our trip fell within the Habagat season and it was really rainy.
Fairways also boasts of having the biggest freshwater pool in the island.

They also offer Zorbing (P400.00) and Zipline (700.00) which we did not try anymore.

My Mom, the ever religious Catholic, would not miss the chance to go to the famous Boracay Grotto
We found this nice, quaint chapel within Fairway's private beach
My brother tested his waterproof case bought at CD-R King for only P400.00. Effective! That's his actual iphone underwater
Happy Birthday Mac (He looks sad, probably because I haven't given him a gift)
And Happy 34th Anniversary to the best parents in the world!
