If you were asked speedboat or any other boat, speedboat will be a brilliant idea! It was so exciting as the waves that day were strong.

Right after that we set off for our parasailing.

More Suggestion:

Go around Kalibo! Check out the stores and streets, the mall, the bakeries (so much cheaper), the market. You will have fun! πŸ™‚


Extra Note:

Prepare 700php for terminal fee at the airport before boarding to the return flight.
