Boracay AdvenTour

Boracay, it's everybody's favorite to spend vacation and escape from the hassles of city life. The perfect haven to relax and try to work out those muscles with all of its adrenaline-rushing water sports and activities. Indeed, Boracay is one of the world's best known paradise for all beach goers, tourists and even bummers all over the world.

Well let me tell you my Boracay experience. It was one of those escapades that will surely retain in my memory. My friend booked our flight with SEAIR, and yes, they offered one of the fastest flights and inexpensive Boracay airfare. Very convenient for a person like me. It was my first time to ride a plane, so I was one of those nervous but excited being. I couldn't pay attention to the safety measures that the attendant was saying. I was in paranoia that some horrible plane crash and accidents kept playing in my mind. So many "what if's?". I cant explain how I feel while on the plane especially during the take off and landing. But seeing the view down there was an experience and sight to behold. When the plane's engine stopped, I felt relieved. And when we arrived at Caticlan, I was very excited for I know that we were minutes away from the paradise. We took a short tricycle ride to the pier and a boat ride to the White Beach. And yes, I cant hide my feelings that time. It was incomparable. My smile almost reached my ears. Well, I was a first-timer, that's why..:)

We checked in at *Microtel Inn and Suites. Microtel Boracay is a distinctive resort hotel of the Microtel Inn and Suites in the Philippines. Combining hotel comfort and exotic island flair, Microtel Boracay is a serene seaside retreat that has taken the same practical approach of the Microtel Inn and Suites chain of hotels. The result is an affordable, international class hotel from which to explore with convenience and comfort the exciting tropical island of Boracay, Philippines. Accomodation was great. The hotel staffs were very hospitable and helpful (two of those values that we Filipinos are known for). They never fail to smile and greet to every guests that passes by. I can say that we got what we paid for. Another thing that makes Microtel an ideal place to check in is because of its location. Lies along the Diniwid Beach that is away from the noise of pop music and hubbub that has overtaken the island. It is perfect for those who want a more relaxing and quiet stay and is a few minutes walk to all the "going-ons" at the heart of the white beach.

The first thing we did was of course, eat and fill those mouth with sumptuous foods. Each menus surprised our eyes and filled our tongue with such "sobrang sarap" foods. It made us forget our diet. After a little rest, we headed our way to the shore. It was really amazing. I have never been to a beach with such kind of beauty. My feet felt the fine powdery white sand and the water is so steady and clear. My friends and I played beach volleyball under the sun. It was hot and fun. The day experience was great. But the night life was so crazy and much fun. We went bar hopping and take a shot or two then grooved with different people to the beat and rhythms of the cool music.

Day 2. Our Adventure day. We tried different activities and water sports. We started with horseback riding and nature tripping at Tibiao Whitewater River. I was so fascinated of its classic features of a tropical whitewater river, with rich vegetation hemming the banks, views of rice terraces, spectacular falls and clear water. After that we tried glass bottom boat and banana boat ride where we were all thrown away and stumbled into the water. It was very remarkable and fun. Unfortunately we were not able to try kite boarding and windsurfing as well as snorkeling. Maybe next time, if there is.:)

And at the end of the day, we unwind with relaxing massage offered by skilled masseurs by the beach while watching the panoramic view of paraws sailing in pristine water along the sunset. Oh what a great life!

On the next day, when I woke up. Yes! the next day was a BIG disappointment. I woke up and everything was just a DREAM. Yes! t'was a dream. Well, anyone can dream. I can dream. It is the reason why you haven't seen any photos of my adventure.:)

That is why I am very much thankful to Seair and Microtel Inn and Suites because that dream may come into reality when they launch the an all-expense paid trip to Boracay for 8 lucky bloggers. Somehow, I now have the chance to fulfill that fantasy. So I blog my way to Boracay.
