You don’t want to scour the Internet for hours just looking for the most romantic Boracay deals though. How do you find the best Valentine’s Day deals? Check out our comprehensive tips and tricks for booking the best packages on flights, food, activities, and accommodation for the day of love.

1. Sneaky flight tips

If you’re booking a flight to one of the most romantic beach getaways in the Philippines during Valentine’s season, then you’ll have to anticipate expensive tickets. When exactly is the best time to buy tickets for your adventure?

Buy tickets early, and book flights for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The great thing is Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, so you can fly to your dream destination a few days early before the rest of the tourists rush in.

One hack to book cheap flights is to use Incognito mode. That way, your browser’s cookies can’t track your previous searches and to you the best plane ticket options, instead of the expensive ones. 

2. Go on a local food trip

You may be tempted to book a table for two at the most expensive restaurant in Boracay to celebrate the day of love. But the fantastic thing is that you can find budget-friendly and delicious food to share with your significant other all over the island.

Generally, local restaurants have meals that range from Php150 to Php200. Plato D’ Boracay, for example, serves home-cooked Filipino food for less than Php100, inclusive of drinks. You can get fresh seafood from places like D’ Talipapa, or discover the different carinderias in the area together. If you want to sit down and enjoy each other’s company, you can hang out at Real Coffee and Tea Café, where they serve delicious drinks and Php40 lemon cupcakes.

You could easily book tables at the fancy 5-star restaurants in the area, but where’s the fun in that? You can do a fun food trip and feast on street food like barbecue, balut, isaw, and corn, for as little as Php50 per snack. You can even share a yummy shake together at Jonah’s Fruit Shake and Snack Bar. There are so many cheap and delicious places that you can discover together on this romantic beach getaway.

3. Don’t get tourist-trapped

When it comes to looking for Boracay travel deals, the most helpful tip you can take note of your budget and book in advance. For example, for a 5K-worth Boracay travel itinerary, you can contact locals to help you plan out an island-hopping itinerary so that you can visit all the islands you want for the fairest price possible.

Don’t be afraid to ask for their help in booking these tours, as it’ll most likely be cheaper than booking a tour on the day itself. You wouldn’t want to get trapped by inflated prices and deals just because you booked on the day of your tour.

4. Fun activities and fantastic friendships

There are lots of thrilling and exciting activities on the island, but they can be pretty pricey for just two people.

Take this trip as an opportunity to meet other couples and split the costs with them to make the experiences unique and worthwhile.
