22nd December: So after months of planning, talking, excitement and sitting in a **** stained seat in a taxi cab whilst getting currency exchanged in Suzhou the day had finally arrived. I woke up at 8:15 as I did every other day that week, the only difference today was that I knew that after a short stint in work I would be getting myself …
... of P1,200 doesn't include transportation or shuttle going to the "Back Beach". Back Beach is the place where all water activities are being done. You can take a tricycle going to the Back Beach that costs P75 only. Once you reach the beach, you need to pay additional P100 (for the entire group) for the waiver thingy.
Once you're off to the island (I think it was Crocodile Island) and started snorkeling, another fee needed to pay which ...
... We no longer stay there so we go up again, and decided to swim to the infinity pool. ALong the passage, you can found the mini zoo. They have different animals there, but not that wild. Some of them are, rabbits, crabitat, monkey, eagle, heron, turtle, guneia pigs and many more.
... then for some reason they weigh everyone?? Not sure what that's about..... But we got on the flight to Caticlan (Boracay), and on the flight, the flight attendants played a little game where the first person to pull out the object they say, won a prize. We arrived in the Caticlan airport and oh god... we all thought we were going to die landing! The plane felt like it was heading to the tarmac nose first and we landed and are swerving left and right.... Once we ...
We spent 5 days in PARADISE! We went with four other couples who are all strategically working with the unreached groups in China. It was so amazing to gather with people who 20+ years ago set out on the mission field when they were younger. They had no clue what God had in store at the time. Now one couple has a large underground Bible school training locals, another is teaching villagers how to fish for protein to live, and another is working on getting ...

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.
