Since our travel time was a bit longer than our last time, we had a stop-over at Dumarao, Capiz. It was just like a halfway to our destination which is Iloilo City. Capiz is one of the provinces in Panay Island which was in between Iloilo and Aklan. Roxas City is the capital of the province but it was out of way to Iloilo City.

But before we headed to Dumarao, we stopped at Aklan-Capiz boundary at the municipality of Sapi-an in Capiz. We took our photos there including the welcome sign of the province. After that, we traveled and passed different towns of Capiz such as Sapi-an, Manusai, Sigma, Dao, Cuartero.

It took an hour before we had our stop over at Dumarao. Actually, the driver wanted to eat so all we have to do was to take some pictures and see the view since the first time we went here was during midnight. We checked on different areas of the restaurant.

We left Dumarao and traveled more than an hour until we reached Iloilo City. We stopped at JD Bakeshop and Restaurant and bought our dinner and have check-in back to Highway 21. It was a hectic day and travel along Panay Island. Our short Capiz road trip was short and I wanted to be back and explore the province particularly Roxas City someday.
