    Hi Kesa,
    We are visiting Boracay on March 2017, A group of 8 people, i would like to avail a service that will cater most if not all the activities. Meron ba sila group discount? Safe ba makipag deal sa mga commissioner.

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Luis,

      I’m not sure with group discount. Yes safe nman makipagdeal sa mga commissioners dun pero pwede din na straight na dun sa agency. May mga post sila dun sa beachfront ng station 3.

  • Yves

    Hi, yung october po ba consider as low season? Meron po b kaung maisasuggest na murang hotels/rent house na maganda at comfortable na good for 3dyas n 2 nights sa bora? Station 2 sana hanggat maaari. Salamat po

  • hammad

    pwedeng makitawad sa mga owners regarding the prices of the rides during april and may?? nakakahingi ba ng tawad sa presyo ng rides during april and may???

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Janeth,

      Yes po. Bora naman is just another community so merong mga convenience stores to cater the locals. Wag ka lang magshashop dun sa malapit sa white beach kasi tlgang mahal. Punta ka sa local market or anywhere along the highway, marami ka makikita.

  • Abigail Aquino

    Do we have to book earlier or mag drop by lang kami sa place? πŸ™‚ Btw saan pwede itry yung activities na you guys tried kasi affordable siya kesa sa iba πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Abigail,

      If what you’re inquiring is accomodation, better to book in advnce especially if you’re going on high season. Sa activities po marami po kayo makukunan sa mismong island na. Dun sa station 3, andun ang activity area and dun ka rin mKakahanap ng mga murang offers sa activities na gusto nyo gawiN. 😊

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Geel,

      Prices indicated on the blog is for low season. April-May is considered Super High season so prices are expected to be higher for several bucks more.

    Hi Keza,

    Any idea if there’s an age limit for helmet diving? My daughter is 4 and I know she would love to try it but not sure if she’s allowed.


    • Keza M Post author


      I’m not really sure kung may age limit but I doubt this can be done by a 4 yr old. Mabigat kasi yung helmet but you won’t feel the weight when you submerge na in water. May special instructions din before the activity like signs na ginagamet underwater to guide you sa pagexplore. Try to ask na muna kasi di rin ako sure.

  • RayD

    Hi Keza,

    My husband and I are planning to go to Bora next year and your blog is really helpful for first timers like us. Anyway, is there a particular place we can avail of parasailing and helmet diving for less or the price is a standard in all stations? Would appreciate a reply. Thanks!

    • Keza M Post author

      Maraming commissioners dun sa Boracay pero kung ayaw nyo sa commissioners, may booking area para sa mga activities dun sa station 3. Shop around kayo bago pumunta sa booking area to know kung anong pinakacheap na price. 😊

  • Eve

    Hi, we are planning a trip to Boracay and found your website which we find very helpful for planning our activities. Can you recommend a transport van or car from Kalibo airport to Boracay with pricing as well? Thanks

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Eve. Vans providing transfer service from Kalibo to Caticlan port are available at the airport for P250 inclusive of boat fare. Sorry I dont have a specific number to give you

  • Mariel

    Hi! I’ve read three of your articles about Boracay and I just want to thank you because they’re all helpful. Anyway, we’re still here deciding on which activities to try and I’m glad I stumbled upon your parasailing review. I just want to ask though. Is hair braiding just P150? The woman who braided my hair earlier said 350 is the average price then she asked for 100 more (50 per strand of colored yarn) for a total of 450. πŸ™

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Mariel. P150 was the price last year. You could have shop around first as locals tend to take advantage of tourists. But anyhoo. Enjoy your remaining days in Boracay. I should prolly think of updating my Boracay posts. Thanks for dropping by 😘

  • Anna Giannella

    Hi! While reading your article, I was already imagining what activities I will be doing on our boracay trip nextweek. Thanks for the info regarding activity prices. Btw, in your comment I’ve read you only managed a booking with a ‘kuya enteng’ tanong ko lang po if he’s connected with any agencies which offer boracay activities? Since his rates are way much cheaper compared sa iba. Im planning sa kanya nalang sana magpa book. I was trying to call him yesterday pero he’s not answering my calls ksi eh. But your post just answered all my questions regarding the costs of the activities… Much thankssss! πŸ˜€

  • Joshua

    Hi! reading your article just make me feel more excited in our trip. Do you have the contact numbers for all the activities? That would be helpful ^_^

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Joshua. We had everything arranged with only one commissioner. Kuya Enteng Ferolino is his name. Mabait at mabilis kausap. Try this number 09098179873. If the prices are too expensive for your taste then you can simply shop around while you are in the island. There’s way too many commissioners out there that you can choose from. Good Luck. Have fun on your trip. πŸ™‚

    • Keza M Post author

      Hi Thanks for the feedback.. It’s sad u have not provided me a real email address though.we could have chatted more about your concern.. But thanks anyways. Maybe i will remve my ads pop up box but never the lnt pop up.. πŸ™‚
