Spending a SMART weekend in Boracay

Who could say no to a free all expense paid weekend in Boracay? No one, right? Last weekend, Smart flew us to Boracay to test their newest innovation, the Smart LTE (Smart Evolution). In the previous weeks, Smart had been sending batches of bloggers to Boracay to give Smart LTE (4G) a try. We were the last batch to be sent for the same reason.

The first thing I noticed upon arriving in Caticlan was the newly renovated and much bigger Caticlan Airport. The airport still uses its old runway but now sports a much bigger terminal area. Unfortunately, the terminal building was not finished yet when we got there and we had to pick up our stuff in a shed outside the main terminal.

Our travel agent booked each of us our own rooms in Real Maris Beach Resort. The hotel was nice and our rooms are super big. It’s twice the size of my room in Eriko’s House.

Since we were there for the testing of Smart LTE, we didn’t get to do much beach-ing. The only activity we got to try was the Paraw sailing during sunset.

Enjoying the sunset and the smooth breeze.

If the purpose of your trip to Boracay is to relax and get away from the stress of the big city, June might be a perfect month to go there. The summer feel is still there but it’s not as crowded as March, April and May.
