Good to know:
Once at the Jetty Port:
You'll end up having around 8 receipts/tickets which you will surrender throughout the different check points within the port; the last two being given to the boat captain before boarding. At the end you'll keep only half of two receipts, the Terminal & the Environmental/Admission ticket.
For statistic purposes, you may be asked to fill out a Registration form.
After the boat ride to Boracay:
Once you disembark at the port in Boracay (hopefully you won't experience rough waters in your transit as you may get somewhat wet), head straight to the tricycle stand and pick one to take you to your accommodation. You should not pay any more than 125 PHP. Later on you'll find out that it really costs 10 PHP to go anywhere on the island but tourists get charged always 100 PHP.
When you depart Boracay:
Remember that you will need to pay a 200 PHP Terminal exit fee after you check-in and before you go through security.
Boat Station 1
Here you will find some of the top and best accommodations possible with relative peacefulness and with the widest beachfront part of White Beach.
I ended up staying at One Crescent Place hotel and booked through Rocketmiles earning 2,000 miles posted to my account on AA.com. You may find my TripAdvisor review here.
Places to visit / Things to do:
Once you are done here, head to Jonah's Fruitshake and Snackbar which is less than a minute away from this location and treat yourself to a refreshing shake of melon and mango or any other of your choice. My TripAdvisor review is here.
... and as Kenney Chesney sings:
"Cuz when the sun goes down, we'll be groovin'
When the sun goes down, be feelin' alright
When the sun sinks down ... over the water
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down, yeah!"
If you arrive early, say a bit after sunset (5:30ish pm) you may catch a free concert or any other type of entertainment as prequel to the movie showing.
