Boracay is a tropical island surrounded by stunning white sand beaches and clear blue waters located about an hour's flight from Cebu or Manila just off the larger Philippines island of Panay.
In terms of hotel prices, Boracay has very distinct seasons. There are two main seasons, low and high, and within the latter, there are three peak seasons. Low season is from 1 Jun–1 Nov or 1 Dec depending on the hotel. High season is usually from 1 Nov, or 1 Dec, to 31 May. Usually hotels charge about about 30% more in high season over low season. The peak seasons are roughly as follows: 1. Christmas/New Year 15 Dec-5 Jan 2. Chinese New Year: Date of Chinese New Year +/- 3 days. i.e. if Chinese New Year falls on 8 Feb, prices will increase 5-11 Feb. 3. Easter: Date of Easter Sunday -4 days and +2 days. i.e. if Easter Sunday falls on 27 Mar, hotels will be more expensive 23-29 Mar. For peak season prices will increase an additional 20-30% on top of high season prices. Prices are negotiable at any time of year, though for peak season a lot of places get fully booked, so negotiating with the places still available will be much more difficult.
