Others may have first hand information but so far as I know, Boracay has been pretty much destroyed by Typhoon Yolanda. It will take several years before that area is anything close to what it use to be. Suggest you try Subic Bay or La Union, both on Luzon Island..Does anybody know of any reasonably priced furnished apartment rentals on Boracay? Thanks in advance for any advice.
Yea, On base is or can be quite high. Cost for small apartment is less over the hill in Brgy Barretto. Bamboo furniture is very low cost and a fridge at about $200us dollars for a small unit. Lower cost yet if you keep going past Barretto and have a look around in or close to San Antonio Zambalas. Fewer tourists by far so costs are lower. Great (local) beach resorts there and people that are quite welcoming. La Union is still an option but have never stopped there...Thanks Jet Lag ~ Haven't been able to find anything reasonably priced in Subic.
