Boracay, now has two seasons only

The word “Low Season” is no longer in Boracay’s vocabulary.

If Boracay previously has the so called low, peak and super-peak seasons, these three periods has currently been replaced with only two.

The island has now the Peak and Super-peak season, which reflected its tourism’s continuous booming.

This means that the island’s monthly tourist arrival is not lower than 10,000, said Department of Tourism or DOT-Boracay Officer in Charge Tim Ticar.

In fact Boracay’s average tourist arrival every month is now 100,000, which is unlike before.

In the past, he added, the months of July through September are the usual time when businessmen and or stockholders would go abroad, as some of the resorts and establishments would close down for renovation.

Also in the previous years, the tourists would start coming back again mid-October, and the period from the New Year to summer was coined the Super-peak Season.

However, nowadays there is no longer a “low season,” and Boracay now has two periods, the Peak and the Super-peak seasons, more so that the tourist arrivals reaches up to a million.
