Fairly broad question I know but I need to start somewhere. We are going to spend a week in Boracay & a week somewhere else in the Philippines in any order. Travelling from Sydney, Australia to Manilla maybe around March-June 2013 hot season.
Hubby (50) & I (46) fit & healthy like beaches, bays, clear water for swimming & the casual snorkel. We love the beach.
Enjoy walking around little villages seeing the sights & mixing with locals but not much into organised tours prefer to do it alone. Nice scenery. We will walk, rent a bike or use local transport including ferries & planes to get to each destination
Like a variety of casual local eateries & bars but as we will be also visiting Boracay for a week we only need casual bars for a drink at sunset etc no nightlife
Good selection of 3 star hotels prefer with a pool. Does not have to be on the beach but nearby.
Not into large cities only use them for a nights stopover.
Budget is open but average hotel AUS$70-$100 p/n
I have just started looking at Cebu area, Siquijor, Dumaguete, Palwan. Any thoughts, ideas, reviews or suggestions of these or other areas?
Thanks so much
