In our Boracay travel guide we tell you all about how to get the most from your Boracay vacation! Boracay is family travel paradise. Powder soft white sand beaches lapped by clear blue water. Coconut palms overhanging the beach under which you can lounge at any one of hundreds of restaurants and cafes.
“Sir, over here, boat and van complete package Boracay to Kalibo airport! 200 pesos!” We had just arrived at the Boracay port after a fun two weeks that was essentially a great beach vacation with the kids to kick off our family travel adventure. But it was time to move on to Cebu ahead of Typhoon Ruby.
Boracay White Beach is world famous and deservedly so. But there are other beaches worth exploring on Boracay too! Besides lounging on the sands of White Beach we also checked out two other awesome beaches on Boracay. Read on to learn why there’s more to Boracay than White Beach.
You can find plenty of cheap food on Boracay if you know where to look. You can even find good cheap food. We had some amazing meals and ate like royalty on a peasant’s budget. Our newest post is packed with pictures of the highlights.
Due to some passing typhoons in the middle of our visit we were looking things to do on Boracay in the rain. The Boracay Oceanarium was the perfect way to spend a few hours away from the beach.
Seasons Greetings from the Philippines! Sorry for not sending cards this year – I think the postage expense might lead to the end to our travels! As the annual Christmas letter is a family tradition, and part of the inspiration for our current adventure, we are publishing it here on the blog instead of mailing paper copies. Look at us being sustainable!
We truly enjoyed our time at Orchids. We were looking for a budget friendly place to stay near White Beach with some local character. Orchids nailed that description. Friendly and helpful staff, super location, and amazing value made us very happy we chose to stay at Orchids during our time on Boracay.
All you need to know about how to get to Boracay! We traveled to Boracay in the Philippines over the course of two days, by way of 3 plane flights, a train, taxi, boat, van, bus, and even a long walk. An epic journey worth every minute and every mile.
We’ve taken quite a few long haul flights with Aurora and Jasper before. While all of this experience makes us a bit more confident, we still never quite know how the kids will handle all that time on a plane. The added complication of leaving in the middle of the night definitely tests our family travel savvy. Here’s the story of our most recent long haul red eye with kids.
