The District was the perfect backdrop for our family escapade in Boracay. We love it because it is centrally located along the white beach, walking distance to yummy restaurants, and provides a happy family-friendly service.
Here are some tips on how to maximize your stay in The District, Boracay...

This is the first time that we visited Boracay in December. I must agree with most that December is the best time to be in Boracay because the beach is whiter, the sky bluer and the ambiance cooler. Hence, this time is known as the Boracay's White Christmas.
It was also the first time for our three boys to experience the white powdery sand beaches of Boracay. But what can one do in an island (with kids) made more famous by its vibrant night life and adult-oriented activities?
Here are 10 Never-Boring Experiences to Enjoy with your Kids in Boracay:

I miss the old restaurant scene in Boracay where most of the places were unique, the food was yummy, and you could immerse yourself in the Boracay beach vibe. In 2012, most of the restaurants that have opened are franchised / commercialized chains from Manila or bars trying to be restos.
We asked around to find the best places to eat these days in Boracay, and we got a foodie tip that the best Indian Cuisine on the island is now located on a rooftop bar called Crafty's.
The concept was a bit weird, yes, but these are exactly the places that we want to find -- something uniquely Boracay, with foodies raving about the food, and where the locals unwind.
Here's the story on Crafty's Rooftop Bar in Boracay...

I write to appeal to all to help save Boracay from further environmental degradation. Our family spent the long weekend in Boracay and it almost made me cry. My wife and I first visited Boracay as part of our honeymoon in 1986. It was paradise. The sand was so white it was blinding to the eyes, and so fine it was like talcum powder. The waters were crystal clear with nary a strand of algae. The natives, too, were genuinely friendly and generous. Today, you would not recognize it as the same island. What went wrong?

5. Battle of the Best Spa on Boracay Island!
Considered as one of the best spas in Asia, Mandala continues to push the envelope in holistic wellness with its Shodhana Karma rejuvenation program and The Mandala Spa Hilot Trilogy. Recently, an innovative 24-hour stay-out Detox program was offered, where you can do the cleansing program while still enjoying the life on White Beach. Also, you can stay in the Mandala Villas and enjoy healthy food in the Prana Restaurant.
What I like about Mandala is it provides you with an escape from the busy, urban life, and it empowers you to strengthen your mind, body and soul without being preachy about it. Mandala tries its best to give you an experience of the "old Boracay" before its commercialization and before the 650,000 tourists/year trooped to this small island.
