Planning for a trip to the most popular beach destination in the Philippines? Read on to find out what the best things to do in Boracay are! This is kind of an overdue post and initially, I wanted to make one post per activity but settled on making one for everything. My boyfriend and I traveled to Boracay last April 2015.

Just one warning for you before […]
