It's out.

Not very proud of this one. The article was edited that it looked like chopped stories which were forced into a tiny space. But still, I'm thankful it was published.

Boracay, take two

MY first trip to Boracay was quick and tiring. I spent only 24 hours on the island-a terribly uneventful trip.

Last week's visit was different. For starters, it was my first time to fly with Cebu Pacific and experience landing in Kalibo airport instead of Caticlan.

We checked into the Boracay Tropics Resort Hotel, a resort with Triple A rating from the Department of Tourism. Many of the guest rooms, including mine, overlooked the pool and lush gardens.

Our little Boracay adventure started with a rough ride aboard an all-terrain vehicle through various trails leading to Mount Luho, said to be the highest peak in Boracay. Unfortunately, the sky was cloudy, preventing us from seeing the spectacular view from the top.

The next day we tried one of the newest fun water activities in Boracay. Reef-walking entailed putting on these heavy metal headgear, diving to about 20 feet, and walking around a fascinating reef. The others had fun feeding the fishes while I tried my best to get away from them!

Something that I had always wanted to do in Boracay was to parasail, and this time I got to do it. Before that, however, I checked and double-checked the straps to see if they were locked properly.

It was very windy so ascending was not really a problem for the three of us. Next thing we knew, we were flying. The sensation was great-the longest 15 minutes I'd experienced. It was the next best thing to skydiving.

Cebu Pacific now flies five times daily to and from Caticlan airport. With new 72-seater planes, the airline offers Boracay tourists the option to fly directly to Caticlan at cheaper rates, or go through Kalibo airport aboard slightly bigger aircraft.
