The rainy season is usually accompanied by a list of tips (solicited and otherwise) on staying dry and how to avoid the usual maladies such as cold, fever and flu.
But what about recommendations for those that have yet to move on from the sun-shiny "daze" of summer vacation?
Or for those searching for a break from the rainy day blues?
Fortunately, two Boracay resorts have laid out their off-peak rates, thus the remedy of a quick recovery is within reach.
After its soft opening in May 2016, COAST BORACAY is quickly earning a reputation for being the most stylish resort in Boracay's Station 2 district.
Its beach-front location, sleek Miami-inspired architecture with a landscaped pool area, guest rooms furnished with 400-thread count bedsheets, and SMART television with free Netflix, had some netizens describing it as one of the most "instagram-worthy" locations in the island.
Reviewers have also given the resort overwhelmingly excellent ratings on TripAdvisor.
