Visayas > Boracay > Siqijor > Siargao

If this is your second time to the country and you have already seen the top sites last time, we suggest a more detailed tour of the Visayas region, as there is lots to see!

The total cost for a two week vacation along this route would be from
 1,000 – 2,000 USD   depending on how fancy you choose your accommodation. Go here for other tours    button_check-out-other-tours

Flight from Manila to Boracay

You can also do this entire page’s route backwards, but we chose it this way because Boracay is more of a commercial party zone for kitesurfers, while Siargao offers a departure like a chime, a note to be remembered. You’ll never want to leave but at least you’ll bring the scent of the ocean with you.

Get the heck out of Manila dude, and straight to the beach. Get your vacation right on track!


Accommodation in Boracay


If you have the time there are great islands just to the north, and instead of flying to Cebu, you can wind your way there, tons of things to see along the way.

Here are a few top options for accommodation, or click on one of the buttons to see all options (from

If you have enough time you can check out the islands of Panay and Negros to get to Cebu by bus and ferries. Lots of jewels along the way.

Flight from Boracay to Cebu

If possible get out of metropolis Cebu asap and on your way to Bohol Island.

Interesting scenery to explore, after which you can check out the ever elusive and magical …

We then want to get back onto Cebu island for a few more dazzling adventures.

According to Rome2Rio this route is taken care of by Ceres Liner.


Once the ferry lands on the southern tip of Cebu Island near Santander, you can take an hourly bus to Oslob to check out the whale sharks, before heading back up to MoalBoal to enjoy the waterfalls canyoneering and other fun goodies, and where you can stay the night before moving on.

In other words, if you choose to take a slower path from Boracay along land, entering central Visayas at

  • Dumaguete instead of Cebu (by plane), you can go first to Oslob/Moalboal, then counter-clockwise to Cebu, or
  • fly into Cebu City, then clockwise direction, eventually flying out of Dumaguete instead.

If flying in to Cebu, your overall path as explained on this page would look approximately like this (the land way to Dumaguete and fly out of Cebu route is shown on a similar map above):

Accommodation in MoalBoal

After MoalBoal you would head back south to the ferry and on to Dumaguete if flying on to Siargao or on to Siqijor if you had taken the slower land route through Panay and Negros islands.

Now that you have had a totally awesome journey through the very heart of the country, you can start to wind down in the country’s surfer capital, hippy hang out, lots of live music, and a chill hanging joint before you re-enter the hustle and bustle of the big city. You will not want to leave!

This is a must to do!!Super ultimate tour is the best with Kayangan and barracuda lake, twin lagoons (my favorite), coral garden (blue fabulous coral) were the best. It’s really worth it to pay for private tour (3500 to 4000 PHP). You will also have to pay for entrance fees (150 to 200PHP by location) and eventually shopping at the market - must do (count 300 for 2 for fish, pork, fruits and vegetables, water).

I was looking for a personalized excursion to the beautiful Gulf of Bacuit.Seeing the comments, I contacted Mel.Very responsive, very efficient and perfect organization.The flight attendants were very friendly and very helpful.And I'm not even talking about the meal on board...a marvel.In all fairness, this excursion will remain an excellent memory and I cannot recommend Mel and his team highly enough.A big thank-you.

This tour went well above all our expectations! I couldn't recommend this enough! The boat crew, captain and tour guide were nothing but amazing, everyone was so kind, helpful and friendly. The crew knew the best spots to visit that weren't overcrowded with tourists, 3 times we were lucky enough to have whole islands to ourselves! It was my partner's birthday while away and everything went above and beyond, bonfire, cake, birthday card, singing and celebrating with us.If you love camping this is definitely a tout you should do, it has been the highlight of our trip!!
