First day everyone is exploring and walking around and they you realize that everyone is trying to sell you some activities .. But how can you know which are time worthy and with are not . Here is an Ultimate Boracay Island activity guide . Choose the best one for you and have great and relaxing holiday !
1 . FLY FISH RIDE ( Around 600 Peso per person , but prices can vary )
Fly fish is type of vehicle with an air cushion. The action begins when the craft is pulled by a motor powered vehicle.
