How To Get There?
Take a flight to Manila. You
may have to spend a night in Manila on your outward journey because
onward flights to Boracay are limited. Fly Philippine Airlines
from Manila (Domestic Airport) to Kalibo Airport. (The flight
takes 30 minutes and costs about 3,000 Philippine peso return).
From Kalibo Airport takes the air-conditioned bus to Caticlan
and the boat from Caticlan harbor to Boracay (the bus trip takes
90 minutes and the boat 30 minutes; combined ticket Pp140). Various
charter companies fly direct from Manila to Caticlan Airport
(Pp4, 000 return; 60-90 minutes). As there is no jetty on Boracay,
you have to wade ashore from the boat, so wear something

When To Go?
The high season is from December to April. Christmas is popular - but you may have trouble finding accommodation. May to June is ideal but rather hot. July to November is the low season and therefore the cheapest time to go. October and November have the best sunsets.
Choosing the Best Time to Go
As a rule, it's great to visit Boracay anytime. But then again, so many activities have been lined up that it is usually difficult to make up your mind regarding just WHEN to go. We have outlined here some of the major events in Boracay to help you make the most of your stay in the island.
January in Boracay has one big plus: the world-famous Kalibo Ati-Atihan Festival, the Philippine mardi gras which is celebrated every third week of January.
International sports events such
as the Boracay International Funboard Cup and the Annual International
Paraw Cup Challenge is held during January to February. It is
during this time of the year when the "amihan" (northeast
monsoon) season produces winds that are most reliable and at
their strongest. March, April, and May are the summer months.
At this time, the island thrives with beach activity as many
tourists arrive to enjoy basking in the sun and staying in the
cool waters, either
June, July and September are considered off-season months in Boracay. Budget conscious tourist swear that this is the best time to go since Boracay rates are cheapest and there are few "rivals" for that precious patch of white sand beach. After the hectic beehive activity of the summer months, there is - - aaah, the relative peace and quite!
October marks the beginning of the peak season. This already lasts until the summer months. During the months of October, November and December, the cool, tropical climate is at its best in the island. Major sports events are held at this time of the year. Holiday offerings are also popular among most establishments during the Christmas season.

Tours of local attractions take place on a regular basis but you can organize your own
tour with just your kids or with a few other families in your neighborhood. You may be
surprised by what companies and organizations will provide free tours of their facilities.
The fire hall is always intriguing to young children. If you call your local fire hall and
speak with the fire chief he will be happy to arrange a time for you to stop in with your
children. They will show the kids around, let them see inside the fire engine and if there is time the children can see a fireman in all of his gear. Not only is this fun, it is a safety
precaution for kids. Chances are they will be less scared of a firefighter in his full uniform with a mask if he or she sees one before an emergency. You will have to be
prepared for the tour to be cut short if an emergency is called in. Free Tours around your City
