Hey friends! With my 16 days in the Philippines I figured I would share with you my experience while island hopping! My journey started in Harbin China where I live and I flew out of Harbin Taiping International Airport with China Southern Airlines and had a 7 hour layover in Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. From there I made the 2 hour trip over to Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport where I waited to board my flight with Cebu Air to get to the beautiful island of Boracay.
Upon arrival at Godofredo P. Ramos Airport also known as Catilan Airport I was greeted and driven over to Caticlan Jetty Port by Southwest Tours. I had to purchase two separate tickets for the short ferry that takes you from the main island to the Boracay Island. The first ticket was the TERMINAL Fee which was 100 PHP/person ($3.00 CAD) and an ENVIRONMENTAL Fee of 75 PHP /person ($2.15). There is also a BOAT Fee of 25-30 PHP/person ($0.71-$0.85 CAD) but Southwest Tours informed me that I was exempt from paying the boat fee because it was included in the price I paid for their service.
I stayed at Island Jewel Inn in which is located in a quiet section of station 3 of Boracay Island. It’s a 1 minute walk to the beach and is within walking distance to station 1 and 2. I stayed in a standard double room and a continental breakfast was also included.
