      Christmas at Jimmys

      Great family orientated place, myself and 2 friends stayed at fat Jimmys over Christmas 2011/2012 and had a great stay...

      Ivone was great, got us breakfast every morning and it was included in the price all for like £4 a night....couldnt ask for better. Plus it was great being able to watch a nice happy filipino family celebrate their Christmas eve.. Was quite heart warming considering my friends and I were spending Christmas away from our own families.

      Location is just slightly behind all the main stuff on station too, so if any other person complains about it, well my advice, get off your arse and walk less than 5 mins and you'l be rewarded with that white sandy beach.

      Granted tis probably is not the best location for the slightly older or those with walking disabilities as the path to the beach is quite narrow and often crowded with passing bikes.

      Only negative was the inital greeting as we got off the pedicab thing as there was loads of begging children near the entrance which can be very off putting.

      ... until most of the passengers had left and I was able to haggle more discretely. Sometimes people will give you a lower price but they don’t want others to know. I still got ripped off compared to locals but less ripped off than other tourists; "roll of eyes" at myself. Tourists were being charged four times that of local people. I don’t mind paying more money than locals, but I do hate it going to people that are already doing fine (subjective but in terms the ...

      Stephanie's mom urged me to book a ticket to Boracay since she wanted me to get the true Filipino experience. So, I booked a ticket.

      I got up early because my flight to Boracay was at six am. After I arrived in Boracay, I wondered around and a local guy helped me to find a hotel. After I checked in, I wandered around Boracay.

      Some man asked if I was Filipino-American. I said no and ...

Like everywhere in Asia, all the equipment is prepared and handled by the staff; just put on BCD at last minute, and flop backwards over the side; hand them the belt and BCD when done; and head up the ladder, Linda likes it as easy on her ...

      We said goodbye to Jack and Ferelyn and a couple of hours later we climbed aboard our flight to Boracay Island. The second flight was the same as the first, but the ending was what you might call 'thrilling'. When we were on final approach, the ...
