  • I was a little unsure about this living museum. It seemed difficult to reach and a bit difficult to arrange, but I am very glad that we went. I was a highlight of our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it...  more »

  • Motag Living Museum is an educational, interactive and fun experience that adjusts your perspective on the privileges of the modern age. The people here are full of kindness, humility and happiness. It is a worthwhile experience. The cost was 700 php per person. We paid 100 php for a tricycle from the Caticlan Port. This place runs on donations and your money will be put to good use.
  • Traveled from boracay to go to the museum during their normal hours, Tuesday at 2pm. Museum was closed. Had called earlier in the day, person on phone did not mention they would be closed. Wasted time and money to travel over. Disappointed.

Where to stay in Boracay

Boracay holds a daunting number of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, especially given its size. Just along the main central beach, choose between dozens of four- and five-star resorts, as well as mid-range hotels and guesthouses, all of which come at reasonable rates. For a romantic, tropical atmosphere, opt to stay in one of the wooden huts and bungalows that face the beach or circle grassy central compounds. The peak tourism season lasts from November to May, when prices rise and availability shrinks, so you'll want to book ahead of time.
