    Great article Brings back memories of my visit last year. A word of warning, nothing is cheap in Boracay, but I guess that's the price you pay for a stay in paradise and somewhere that all food and drinks have to be transported to by small boat and trike.

    Food and drink prices are on par with Spain, Portugal and Greece, double or treble what they are in most of the Phil's. I've been reliably informed by Pinoy friends working there that in the beachfront bars, prices aren't published and they have 3 prices - one for Filipino's, one for westerners and one for Koreans !!!

    I paid the equivalent of a tenner £10 for a pizza last time I was there.



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    Ian, i know there's a Starbucks there! But as much as i want to, i have to cut back on having coffee.. i happened to have gallstones and have read in the internet that coffee triggers the pain (?) - the last time the pain triggered was when i drank coffee before leaving the office...so no Starbucks for me in Boracay or never again

    We spent a couple of weeks in Boracay. When my wife came to Spain (in June) and we walked along the the Paseo (beach road) for the first time, she asked, "Why do they think Boracay is so great ?

    Sorry to hear that Rayna, hope you can get them treated soon

    I'm sure you won't miss the Starbucks in Boracay, there's lots to do, I'm sure you'll have a great time.

    I spent 4 nights in Boracay with my baby and we had a brilliant time spent some lazy nights in the different bars - really like EPIC actually as it had good lazy chairs to chillout in!
    I have been to so many beach resorts in the world and currently Boracay is 2nd after a pretty amazing place I went to in the Maldives.
    From a cost point of view I think it was ok, but the beach and the parties at night, live music was really great!

    Personally I cant wait to get back there. The one gem I found getting there was to book a helicopter transfer - which blew my fiancees mind! The look on her face was a beautiful picture. One I'll never forget.

    There's a pretty good wet market in Boracay. Plus load of places nearby that'll cook whatever you buy in whatever style you want. Yummy.
