HOW YOUR FAMILY CAN ENJOY BORACAY

It is a no brainer.  If you are single and loves the beach, Boracay is the place for you.  However, if you are traveling with family, it is a no brainer too -- you have to plan!  Our trip was legit so I figured out you would want to beg me for tips haha

Here we go:

1.  Go for 4 days and 3 nights - For any travel that requires a plane or a long bus ride, always opt of 4 days and three nights.  Trust me, the 2 whole days in Boracay island will make a lot of difference.  You have more time to explore the island, not to mention you will feel rested when you get home.

2.  Splurge on that one thing - There are many things you can spend your money on Boracay.  However, you can't have it all.  So my suggestion, pick one! And guess what? we chose food! We spent around 500 per person per meal. In some hotels that offer buffets, Risen is free, so we explored on those too.  We also had snacks, coffee and shakes in between.  I actually gained a tummy fold in Boracay!  The food crawl is so great, you won't have the time to eat what you want.  So much food, too little time.











3.  Choose a hotel near the beach - Long walks are good, but not if you are wanting to be in bed!  Since the shore is long, opt to stay in hotels near the beach.  Having a room near the shore is also better when you have kids that would want to be carried after a long day.  A 5 star hotel is not necessary because you will just use it for sleeping anyway.  There are rooms that cost 3,500php for 3 pax.  Not bad at all!






4.  Respect each other's non-negotiable - When you are traveling with family, though you are considered a unit, each has a want.  I made sure I have enough photos ;), Bryan had nap time and Risen had Mango or Chocolate shakes twice or even thrice a day!!  Just make sure everyone gets his turn.  Support the whims, and you will all end up happier!



5.  Make sure your kid/s are in another bed - Oh but of course!  Wives, you know what I mean, right?



6. Bring toys for the kids - There were plenty times I and Bryan allowed Risen to play the sand while we have coffee.  Most of the restaurants are beach front.  That means, you can catch up without any help from a gadget.



7.  Avoid the social media - Speaking of gadgets, wives, avoid the social media.  I know it is so tempting to post, but, that too can wait.  Experience the place in real time and not through the screens of your phones.  Funny on how we are always together but a trip can  make us realize there are many things we still do not know about each other.  We try to make time with Risen and with each other (me and Bryan) as much as we can, because why not?


8.  Lastly, wake up early!  The mornings in Boracay are so peaceful and clutter fee.  A perfect time to thank the Lord for and reflect on the things He has done and will continue to do!
