BoracayCompass - The Ultimate Guide

5 years ago

Hi I'm Paul, I started BoracayCompass to help travelers make the most of their stay on the island. Since then the site has grown a lot, not just in traffic but also in engagement: I get lots of emails and comments from happy and thankful visitors, which motivates me to keep on building out the website even further to truly make it the ultimate guide. I do this through publishing very detailed in-depth guides about all things Boracay, such as what the fun things to do are, where to stay, how to get there etc. Basically, everything you need to know about the island.
