Take a day off from your Boracay trip and explore the nearby island of Panay. With this join in tour, you will trade sand, sea, and salt for the caves, trails, and waterfalls in Hacienda Maria.
Meet your guide and the others joining this trip at McDonald’s D-Mall in Boracay. Once you are all set, you will head to the port to board the boat that will take you to the mainland.
Hacienda Maria is tucked away in the mountains of Buruanga in Aklan. It covers 14 hectares of land blessed with waterfalls, caves, and lush vegetation.
The guide will take you on a short trek to the mountains to reach the waterfalls. Enjoy the views along the way, as you will pass by traditional bamboo huts and rows of orchards. Once in the falls, enjoy its waters cascading into a bright blue natural pool. You will have time to take a dip in the pool and let the cool water relax you.
From the waterfalls, the guide will take you to two unspoiled caves, each with varying levels of difficulty. One cave is easy and suitable even for kids and older adults. It has interesting stalactites and stalagmites and other rock formations. The other cave is a bit more challenging and is best suited for those who want a more adventurous experience.
Hacienda Maria also has a Hot Pot Jacuzzi—a pot resembling a giant wok large enough to hold a person. It is filled with water and put over a small fire. You can soak in the pot to soothe tired muscles after the trek.
On this day trip from Boracay, you will also see how locals make traditional coconut wine or lambanog. At 80 to 90 proof, this carefully crafted and distilled beverage is pretty potent. You will also get to experience local life by having your lunch served on a bamboo table.
