When in Boracay, it is a must to eat at D'Talipapa Market. And just like what my title says, you choose...buy...cook and eat. Choose - what you want to eat. Sea foods or meat. The options are endless. Buy - pay for what you get. Ave is 140-150 pesos per kilo to have it cooked. Cook - have it cooked... More

Make sure you visit the fish market - it's lively and a real experience. Select various fish/meats and haggle down to a reasonable price. The only frustrating part is if you aren't a local they will charge you more so make sure to haggle right down for the best deals. Local spots around cook the fish for you for a... More

This is a real cultural experience! And a source of extremely fresh local seafood! I went twice - excellent local prawns, scallops, tuna, and snapper! Lots more! I saw beautiful fresh live lobsters! Buy your seafood - haggle on prices! - and then go to nearby restaurant which will cook it up in a snap! Great experience!

Or spot a place/restaurant and the sellers are willing to help you find the best ship for your request of sea foods. They can make soup, fry, or... More

Other than the wet market part/seafood restaurants, take some time to walk through the different stalls to get your souvenirs! I personally didn't buy anything, but I'd imagine things to be cheaper here than D'Mall.

Seafood at the wet market are fresh, but remember to bargain for it. We got 2 big crabs, 4 live big prawns and some 500grams fresh... More
