Boracay, The Philippines

 

Boracay Island is our first stop in the Philippines. It is always fun to be greeted by the local community when visiting them.

 

I chartered a motorcycle type taxi with a sidecar setup for the afternoon - $15.

Depending with whom you speak or which review you read it is either the best or the worst.  I mean just last year Conde Nast Readers Choice rated it the best in the world and Travel and Leisure calls it "your idea of a desert-island paradise."

An unbelievable number of bloggers and just normal reviewers call it the ultimate dump and grossly overcrowded.

My verdict - it is a dump with a few sublime spots.
