The HRgroup in Boracay Island was originally planned to visit Roxas City for a movie, food trips and road trip. But upon discovering a short video of Liktinon Rivers awesome big white rock formation, the clear waters that is relaxing in the eyes which ultimately changes our minds. Instead, we decided to wrapped up things and consider visiting Madalag. Philippines is truly an amazing place on Earth and Aklan should be counted on top! But wait, I think Madalag has a lot to offer.
There are 25 Barangay in Madalag and these are the following:
Liktinon River can be found in the Municipality of Madalag, Aklan. Madalag is a fourth class municipality, about 45 minutes away from the town of Kalibo. From Boracay, as we are trying not to be a typical “Filipino Time Citizens” at exactly 5AM we departed from each of our accommodations. Around 6:03AM we arrived in the Tabon port where the Van waited for us. We rented a Van (one-way)for 1,500.00 Caticlan-Madalag. So if you are 10 in group, or even at least 8 this is a very good price.
The Tourism Officer Francisco “Escot” Entila greeted us at the Municipal Hall then a short meet and greet with the town Mayor in his house and handed us “Marang, Coconut Candy and Rambutan”. We begun our 30-40 minutes Habal-habal ride. It was a risky ride since 90% of the road trip was so rough that anytime the habal-habal (motorcylce) might slip due to rocks all over the roads and the road is i think a 50 degree inclined. So hold on your dear, embrace your driver :). Parts of the group where in the van so they arrived 20 minutes late because they stopped somewhere else for a photo opt.
Madalagnon generously greeted us in the entrance area where you need to register and drop your monetary donations. We were guided by Kuya Elmer. A very nice guy who has all the knowledge in giving info’s about the River and The Madalag.
