ATV, Everland Aviary Park and Tanawin View Point – Day 2 (Part 2)

After helmet diving we have to go back to the hotel to get money to pay for our lunch. Kuya from Three M Resto is still with us. He joined us in our helmet diving activity. From D’Mall we were picked up by APA ATV and Buggy for another set of activity. This time land activity. We got our ATVs from them. It includes shuttle service back and forth.

On arrival we registered and then there’s a short orientation. The guy discussed the route we’ll take and some do’s and dont’s. The ATV activity costs 400 php. Another fee of 60 php for the entrance on Everland Aviary Park and 50 php for the Tanawin View Point that you have to pay.

And off we go to Mt. Luho. Mt. Luho has the highest point in Boracay and can be reach best by a mountain bike or terrain vehicles (ATV/Bug Car).

It’s my first time to try driving (haven’t tried even a scooter) so I was a bit nervous and excited at the same time. We have a guide on this activity.

After few minutes of driving we stopped at Tanawin View Point where you can see 360 degrees view of Caticlan, Bulabog Beach and nearby islands.

It’s robot made from scratch, buggies, side cars and old materials. We saw this at Tanawin View Point’s entrance.

Don’t know how many steps this has, tiring yes, but it’s all worth it because of the view you’ll see on top. 

Some of the Luxury Apartments at Tanawin

Tanawin condo style apartments have been designed to bring guest the utmost in modern living with an innovative and contemporary style, combining sophistication with the peace and tranquility of a serene tropical island. Tanawin consists of 14 luxurious apartments: one, two, and three bedroom penthouse suites.

After Tanawin View Point we hurried to Everland Aviary Park since its already getting dark. There’s no attendant when we arrived. We called but only a parrot answered. Indeed amusing. We thought we have to tour the aviary by ourselves when suddenly someone went down from a make shift rest house.

Didn’t see much since its dark. Just a bat. Didn’t dare exploring the area. There’s no enough lighting, I’m afraid someone might jumped at me or I might stepped on something or some creature. And from the looks of it attendants were already resting.

Going back to the starting point. To the APA ATV and Buggy office where the shuttle awaits to bring us back to D’ Mall.

When it got really dark our guide has this colorful lights at the back of his bug car to light our path. We drove slowly since there’s a lot of curves and slopes along the way.

Went back to the resort, took a bath and had dinner at Mang Inasal (for their unlimited rice). We originally planned to go out but we decided to just buy something and bring it to the hotel room. It will be cheaper that way and we can retire early to bed.

Bought fries at Luna Rossa

back to the hotel

Ordered banana split. Asked kuya at the minibar to slice our calamansi. Also borrowed shot glass from him.

How we end our day…

Very odd combination. French fries, mango, banana split and tequila.
