Kalibo (Boracay) Philippines
Thanks to its proximity to some of the region’s tourism hotspots and the government’s decision to bestow upon it an international airport, little Kalibo has found itself as the gateway to the Western Visayas. Settlers first arrived in Kalibo in the 13th century and, as you might expect of a place with such a long history, it isn’t without its charms. It finds itself in a unique position: it’s one of the region’s oldest towns but located in one of its youngest provinces, Aklan. Millions of visitors pass through here every year, ostensibly en route to the divers’ paradise of Boracay, 90 minutes to the north. But plenty have stopped over to find a quaint town that usually bursts into life once a year, for the Ati-Atihan Festival in January – an 800-year old, week-long celebration in honour of the Santo Niño de Cebú that draws crowds from around the region.
