I have been to Capiz twice. But the last time I was in this part of Western Visayas was in 2009 when Roxas City, known to for its moniker as the Seafood Capital of the Philippines, hosted the Western Visayas Tourism Assembly.
There were some attempts on my part, go return to Roxas, but never pushed through. Then last month, i was scheduled to go to Antique. Funny thing is, Roxas, Capiz was originally not part of the plan, but yeah, it pushed through!
It’s the last day of our tour in Antique and I am pretty much excited to try new stuff while here! We we up a little early again, for our coffee, and breakfast of corned beef and sunny side up. It is our last day in Antique and we made sure to save the best for last!
After breakfast, we went to the Tribal Adventures facility to try the whitewater kayak experience. I have tried the whitewater radfting in Davao before So more or less I have an idea of what to expect.
And before we go out in the river, we had our safety briefing first. Tribal Adventures has been operating the whitewater kayak in Tibiao for quite some time now, but it is only recently that it came into spotlight when Katahum Tours started to market this activity as part of their tour product.

Fact: I grew up in Bacolod City in the Province of Negros Occidental, and oveer the years, I was able to explore the other Provinces of Western Visayas, namely: Iloilo, Guimaras, Aklan Capix, except for one: Antique.
I did made several attempts to cross the border between San Jaquin Iloilo going to Anini-y Antique but nothing came it. All plans failed.
Until finally, last month, I received a message if I wanted to join the Antique Heritage Tour. Hmmmm, Interesting!
Tis is not my first time to try staying at the Days Hotel in Iloilo City. In fact this is one of the reliable hotel brands that I recommend to friends who are visiting the City known for its Dinagyang Festival and La Paz Batchoy.
My first experience with Day’s Hotel Iloilo was in 2010 when the hotel was one of the major sponsors of Visayas BloggingSummit, and the Philippine Blog Awards – Visayas.
And just a few weeks back, I found myself sleeping in one of its rooms again.
