During our visit, the Municipal Government of Romblon treated us sumptuous authentic Romblomanon lunch as we enjoy watching upbeat street dance performance from Biniray Ati-atihan festival dancers. Food in Romblon are mostly freshly cooked seafoods while some are cooked mostly with coconut milk or what we call “Ginataan” in Tagalog.

After having lunch, we enjoyed swimming while others opted to go fishing and caving. Since Romblon is already near the Visayas Region, I noticed that Paraw can be popular on this province. Paraw is a double outrigger sail boat native to the Visayas region of the Philippines.
