Savor a full day of fun in Antique province with this combination tour of Calawag Mountain Resort’s Tubing Adventure and the Tibiao Museum, complete with round-trip transfers from your Boracay hotel.
The 10-hour tour also treats you to a fish spa and kawa hot bath (or cauldron bath) experience. One meal and bottled water come complimentary with the package. Tour insurance is included.
The Calawag Mountain Resort is located at the banks of the Tibiao River. It offers a stunning view of the rippling river, dense trees, and lush hills. Some lunch tables are set up right on the water, so you can eat while the river caresses your feet. For further relaxation, there are swings hanging from trees that drop close to the water.
Tibiao River itself is quite fast-flowing, making it ideal for a water tubing adventure. Like river rafting, you will ride the current positioned on a donut tube, free-floating downstream.
You will also visit the nearby fish spa, where doctor fish can nibble on the dead skin cells off your feet — a delightful experience that feels both luxurious and exotic.
Meanwhile, the kawa hot bath aims to relax and cleanse the entire body. Lie down inside a large wok or cauldron that is filled with heated freshwater, and fragrant flowers, herbs, and leaves. You can also choose to instead bathe in milk, beer, coffee, and other unique concoctions. As you’re soaking, enjoy the view of the river and forest beyond.
The next stop of the tour is at Tibiao Museum or Museo de Tibiao. It is an ancestral home turned museum that houses two of the biggest pearls in the world.
One of the homegrown pearls, already taken out of its shell, weighs about 14 kilograms. The second pearl is still housed in its shell, weighing about 25 kilograms. With an estimated value of US $100 million each, the Tibiao pearls are considered icons for promoting awareness and conservation of Antique’s biodiversity.
