Manila to Boracay (Not Quite As Planned)

On Day 5 in the Philippines, along with Anton and his family, we flew to the island of Boracay to spend 2 days. Things didn’t go quite as planned, as our first flight was canceled, but we did end up making it to Boracay at the end of the day, and then got checked into Discovery Shores Hotel.

Anton’s YouTube channel:

00:30 Going to the Airport – We took a taxi in the morning to the airport, and arrived and checked in. The line and security was pretty tight, but didn’t take too long.

2:08 Flight Canceled and Rebooked – Cebu Pacific is notorious in the Philippines for delayed and canceled flights, and today was no different. We were supposed to fly from Manila to Caticlan, but our flight was canceled, and we had to re-route on another flight to Kalibo airport, about 2 hours from Boracay.

2:36 Lunch at Airport – Lunch at the airport wasn’t anything too impressive, nor was the food supplied by Cebu Pacific.

4:55 Flight to Kalibo, Boracay – Finally, even our re-routed flight was late by 1.5 hours, but we finally took off the Kalibo Airport, towards Boracay island.

6:19 Where is Boracay? – Boracay is a small island off the coast of Aklan. The closest airport is Caticlan, and about 2 hours away is another airport called Kalibo.

7:19 Boat ride to Boracay – After taking a van for about 2 hours to get to the pier, we then took a quick boat ride to Boracay island and we headed to Discovery Shores Hotel where we stayed for 2 nights.

10:00 Dinner at Discovery Shores Boracay – Dinner was served on the beach, along with Anton and his family, and everything was pretty good.

Disclosure: We were invited to stay at Discovery Shores Boracay, so we didn’t pay for our stay. But everything in this video, and all thoughts are my own.
