BORACAY ISLAND, AKLAN – The best thing about Boracay in December is that there is no lumot/green algae along the beach during this time. Though there will be a big crowd as always.
From Kalibo International Airport, we booked a hotel transfer from Southwest Tours Boracay. I booked it online and based on our experience they were a reliable service provider with courteous staffs and new bus and a big motor boat to cross to Boracay Island.
Stayed in La Carmela de Boracay for 4 nights for a boring reason that it was cheap.
The buffet breakfast was an amazing experience. Just imagine all guests coming from 3 different buildings fitting inside a very small dining place. It was chaos. It was sort of a relief program of the government after a disaster.
Other Boracay hotels/accommodations options you can check out:
We got our tours from a man who asked us if we are looking for some tours. We asked for his ID and he was more than willing to comply. His rate was okay considering the peak season because of the approaching Christmas holidays.
We did some island hopping and unluckily strong currents were there to ruin our snorkeling activity.
We had our lunch with overpriced seafoods in Puka Beach and you just have to wonder why bother visiting it in the first place.
We went back to the hotel around 3 in the afternoon and we decided to take some nap.
Once dark, we went outside and stroll along the beach front. We went to Willy’s Rock and walked up to the end of the beach where there is a small groto inside some rock formations.
We had our buffet dinner in The Lobby Lounge of Crown Regency Beach Resort Boracay. The food was good and the selection plenty. We ordered some mojito and was not disappointed.
We went back to the hotel really full. It also rained in a bit so Boracay December weather can be very erratic. It has not rained after that during the rest of our stay in Boracay.
Our parasailing was done 9 in the morning. We got this from the some tour peddler Raymund.
We were actually thinking if we will do the helmet diving but my companion has already done it before. What I remember for this experience is the opening scene in Jurassic Park III. I thought it would be scary but after the lift off, it was just actually okay.
We had a lot of time to but souvenirs and staff since we were in Boracay for 5 days and 4 nights. Our return home to Makati was uneventful.
