Hotels in Marinduque (Day 1)


There are two things known in Marinduque, namely: the Moriones Festival and the Boac Cathedral

Last December 20, 2014, I went to Marinduque to spend my vacation prior to Christmas. Unfortunately, Moriones Festival is celebrated during Holy Week and that leaves me with only visiting  the Boac Cathedral. But this is not the topic in this blog. I am here to help you find the appropriate accommodation for your stay in Boac, Marinduque.

There are seven municipalities in Marinduque. But the best place to stay is in its capital, Boac. And here follows some of the accommodations in Boac, Marinduque.


1. Tahanan sa Isok 



For me, the best place to stay is in Tahanan sa Isok which is located near the marketplace of the town. The lowest price of the air-conditioned rooms is P900-P1,000. It has a swimming pool (use is for free to the guest), hot and cold shower, restaurant, and a wifi (up to the room itself). 


It has the best rooms in town and the rooms are cozy, refreshing, and well-maintained.

    1. Suggestion ko po is you should call them first para sigurado na may rooms kayo pagdating niyo dun at hindi kayo matutulog sa kalye (happened to me one time). Tsaka panigurado na dadagsa yung mga tourists dun next week. Safe travels!
