Not bad for a station 1 stay.  In my observation, if you want to stay in station 1, you also need to prepare and bring extra money so you can dine in the restaurants within station 1.  Food here can be quite expensive. 


  1. Not a bad budget for a Boracay trip, indeed. Glad you enjoyed your stay here on the island.

  2. yes, considering we stayed in station at a peak season. :)

  3. Great post, Now we have an idea how much money will bring. We're planning to go there this summer, and we're really excited... :)

  4. ^glad you found my post helpful :)

  5. Not really bad, supposed to be you'll spend as much as 15k to 18k during that season, and for a beach front accommodation it is really affordable. :)

  6. Wow you saved a lot of money compared to us when my girlfriend and I went at discovery shores boracay because we spent 30,000 for 2 days and 2 nights. You really know how to budget your money good for you.

  7. ^thanks. I think discovery shores boracay is quite expensive especially during peak season.
