2011 March: Boracay Island, Philippines: ATV Adventure

Travel Date: March 18, 2011
Destination: Caticlan, Malay, Aklan
Even if it is raining, we decided to make this our beach day. Below is a shot of those boats used for parasailing and paraw sailing, many are still willing to try despite of the weather.

We had lunch at Aria (near D’ Mall) and ordered Marinara pasta plus a very delicious panna cotta.
After taking some rest at the beach front, we look for someone who will help us go to the ATV station, we paid for 500php, but they are charging foreigners at around 1500-2000php. It is almost less than 1 hour ride on a very clear uphill and downhill asphalted road. The stops we had are Mt. Luho (highest viewpoint) and mini zoo (butterfly garden – but more of a bat attraction). I’m unfortunate not to see those huge sand castles because the government does not allow kids anymore in doing this. Luckily, I was still able to watch fire dancing for few minutes. I think, Boracay is interesting place for night photography!
