How to get to Mararison Island

From Boracay, (Caticlan) workers docking area, take a bus going to San Jose, Antique route can take you directly to Culasi Antique pull over at (Ceres Terminal) look for tricycle and politely ask to stop at Tourism Center.

Also Philippine Airlines launched new flights from CLARK to SAN JOSE ANTIQUE, PAL fly twice a week and is operated with brand-new 86-seater Bombardier Next Generation Q400 aircraft.

At the Tourism Center please log your name and pay PHP 30.00 for environmental fee. A fare of PHP 150.00 boat fee (joined with others), if you want a private boat they will ask for PHP 750.00 round trip.

Where to stay in Mararison

There’s a lot home stay to choose from and its all budget friendly from PHP 300.00 p/head (cottages) to PHP 1,800.00 p/night with a/c rooms. Because I’m a budget traveler I decided to have my cottage in front beach (Casa Prante) look for Nanay Diding (+639093174230)

Effective last 26th of February 2019, Mararison Island in Culasi, Antique has 24 hours electricity.

For your reference during your stay in Casa Prante in Mararison Nanay Diding the owner of Casa Prante, they used to buy NAWASA water in the City of Culasi for their guest its free when you stay at their property. Unlike other home-stay they’re using deep-well (salt water). Thanks to Nanay Diding I have fresh water all day.

Bedding’s, towels is all fresh, clean and smell good.

Been here many times and Nanay Diding is the best Nanay during my stay this is a highly recommended for first timer or even returning guest.

She won’t leave you if you have any requests like paluto (cooking your foods anything you need during your stay. She’s the best chef for me though (paksiw na isda) fish cooked in vinegar, as well my all time favorite Sinigang and grilled meat and fish).

I believed you will definitely loved this home stay (Casa Prante) don’t be shy to Nanay Diding and Tatay Lilong.

    Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve visited your blog before
    but after browsing through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and
    I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to
    everything. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog
    writers? I’d really appreciate it.
