SAN JOSE, ROMBLON –   Known as the “Marble Capital of the Philippines”, I don’t know much anything else about this province aside from what my elementary teacher taught me.  The yet-to-be-discovered beaches of Carabao Island should put Romblon more prominently on the tourist map.
Come to think of it, location alone makes it an easy sell – Carabao Island is just a half an hour boat ride away from Boracay Island, the country’s pride and a mecca for beach lovers. Carabao Island is located at the southern tip of Romblon, while Boracay is at the northern tip of Aklan province.
