As Boracay is a tourist destination attracting varied nationalities and beliefs, its island activities were on regular schedule during the Lenten season, except for the banned parties on the eve of Good Friday. This week, a heavily crowded Boracay is expected due to the Easter Sunday celebration and because summer vacationers start to flock the island.
