Kalibo Summer Trip

By Jalene B.D.S.

 

I think the very first thing that comes to people’s mind when they heard about the place “Kalibo” is Boracay but there’s many other place that you can go to as well. I’m not a die-hard fun of Boracay despite its popularity, I never even imagined that I can go there someday. But since it’s mostly a sponsored trip, I grabbed the oportunity . I only spent 1500 PHP (roundtrip ticket – Cebu Pacific & Air Asia promo).

 

There’s two airports serving Boracay-bound passengers – (1) Caticlan (2) Kalibo. We chose the latter. Here’s a short details of our trip in Kalibo.

 

 

DAY 1: We traveled from Kalibo to Malay, Aklan where we stayed for the night at Aunt AnnaLiza’s House before we go to Boracay the next day.

DAY 2: We went to Narra Resort, Nabaoy River. In the afternoon, we went to Boracay. We strolled along the beach by evening. It’s very crowded, you’ll see people from different sides of the world. Boracay is very commercialized.

This my kind of place.

 

DAY 3: Woke up early (around 5 AM) so I can watch the sunrise. Instead, I just walk along the beach until I reached Station 3. Mornings in Boracay is what I like the most – it’s peaceful and there’s few people around. While walking along the shores I noticed kids (our native Aetas), just sleeping on a carton. It pierced my heart to see them homeless especially after knowing that they were the first inhabitants of Boracay and they were driven away from their own land.
