I have decided that I should go spend December to February in Boracay living in Bulabog beach. I will be looking for a basic room with wifi since I will need to work while down there. I plan to bring a 12m and 9m kite, I'm 6'2 80kgs riding a 134 tt. The conditions sound like 15-25 knots which will be perfect.
I spent 6 months traveling South East Asia and normally we would just rock up and find a place for a few weeks. I was in SEA from December to May and spent most of this in non-AC rooms, which were very basic. I know that Christmas/New Years will be very busy in Boracay but I wanted to know if I really need to prebook a place for a month or 2 or if I should just book the first week or so and then find a place while I am down there?
Even in Thailand in Koh Phangan for the full moon you could get there a few days before and be fine.
What I'm looking for in accommodation is:
- basic room with a double bed
- reliable wifi
- a place to live with other kiters
- close/on the beach
How much does it cost for a basic room for a month?
How much is food eating out, I'm assuming you can mix it up between street foods and restaurants for quite cheap once you know the area?
Is it worth getting an apartment with a kitchen? (I enjoy cooking but previously in SEA it wasn't worth it since its so cheap)
Thanks in advance
