I always believed that birthdays should be clebrated because they are gifts from God. So, I celebrated by 40th birthday in Boracay with my family. To make it more interesting, my birthday was designed to be a family friendly getaway. We looked for a United Methodist Church in Boracay Island but there was none. The closest is in Ibajay, Aklan. There is a Roman Catholic Church in the island and it is accessible by their e-trike and you can always consider it attending an ecumenical worship. Never miss a worship on a Sunday. So my family made sure we went to a worship service on a Sunday morning. Family matters and so does family worship.
Here are 5 tips for a family friendly trip to Boracay:
Tip #1: Go on a landtrip or take the ferry.
Tip #2: Book ahead on your hotel before you travel. You can do it online.
Tip#3: Choose a hotel in Station 2. It's closer to everything "relatively."
Tip#4: Go "island hopping." There are other beach activities, but this one is a must.
Tip#5: Eat in an all you can restaurant at least once. Especially on your 40th birthday.
If you are coming from Iloilo or just want to visit the nearest UMC in the area, the UMC in Ibajay is just a little less than an hour away. It is just along the highway and a walking distance from the town market. You may even stay there for a night as most churchworkers and visitors drop by at the church and its multipurpose building.
