Many of us have dreamt of visiting Boracay, but the prospect of an expensive trip often looms large. However, my family and I were determined to make our Boracay dream come true without exceeding our budget. In this blog post, I’ll recount our recent vacation to Boracay, highlighting the places we explored, the restaurants where we savored local dishes, and the budget-friendly accommodation we chose.
Budget-Friendly Accommodation at Shore Time Dormitel
To kick off our journey, I booked our stay at Shore Time Dormitel, an ideal choice for budget-conscious families. We selected a single room that could comfortably accommodate 8 people, with an option for an additional 2. The double-deck beds and dormitory-style setup suited our needs, as we primarily required a place to rest for the night. The cost was just P2,400 for 10 people per night. Conveniently situated at Station 3, Shore Time Dormitel offers numerous amenities, including a complimentary shuttle service to and from D’Mall, free Wi-Fi access, air-conditioned rooms, a lobby area, a pantry, a food park featuring nightly live music, a café for coffee aficionados, and a bar area for evening relaxation. The warm and hospitable staff ensured our stay was comfortable. For more details about Shore Time Dormitel, visit their Facebook Page.
Entry Requirements and Arrival
Before commencing our Boracay adventure, we had to fulfill specific entry requirements. We made sure to carry valid IDs for every family member, along with our hotel reservation confirmation. Additionally, we had the necessary birth certificates for the youngest members of our group.
Upon our arrival at Cagban Port, we opted for Shore Time Dormitel’s convenient shuttle service (P400 for 10 people, not included in the accommodation cost) to reach the hotel and check into our rooms. After a brief respite, our eagerness to explore Boracay led us to the famous White Beach, where we delighted in mouthwatering Filipino cuisine. Jasper’s Tapsilog and Restaurant served us a variety of delightful Filipino dishes, satisfying both our palates and our budget. Our total expenditure for the meal was around P900+ for 10 people.
Breathtaking Sunset and Evening Delights
Following dinner, we embarked on a leisurely stroll along the beachfront to witness the mesmerizing sunset, a perfect way to unwind and find inner peace. The festive ambiance of the evening added a touch of magic to our experience.
