Labor day 2016 is fast approaching, and for the beach-going, party-loving crowd, that means Laboracay is coming up as well. Obviously a combination of “labor day” and “Boracay”, Laboracay features loud music, alcohol, celebrities, and of course, partying by the Boracay beaches during the May 1 holiday period.
Folks who have their sights set on joining the festivities will surely be looking at the vast number of hotels in the area. However, a lot of Airbnb-listed accommodations have sprouted up in Boracay in recent years; and now party-goers who prefer Airbnb’s services over traditional hotels have over 300 houses and rooms to choose from.
To help party-goers out, Buhay Digital combed through the Boracay Airbnb accommodations and listed what we feel are the best ones (best looking, best reviewed, etc.). As a side note, booking availability on Airbnb is always fluctuating so no booking dates were indicated when we searched through the listings. Now, without further ado…
