1. By Air
2. By Sea
But today, I am going to share with you how we get there via plane. We've been to Boracay last September together with some delegates from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. For us living in Southern Tagalog part of the Philippines, it is way better to take the plane and fly to Caticlan. Though boats have direct trip from where we live (Batangas), it will take like a day of travel (12 long hours) and that is a waste of time. Why? For the fare will be the same if you sum everything up.
Me and my company booked through AirAsia knowing that it is the cheapest flight from Manila that we can find. The plane dropped us at Kalibo Airport (
From Kalibo Airport, we rode on a van and traveled for another 2 to 3 hours in the road to reach Caticlan Jetty Port. The ride was smooth, had some local passengers to drive with us as well. In that trip, you just need to sit back, relax and enjoy the long hour drive. Don't worry, all of the waiting will be worth it in the end.
In the port, you'll finally ride a boat that will take you to Boracay Island itself. It was a quick trip (approximately 10-20 minutes) with splashing water on the sides (unless you are covered with the boat's plastic window).
Now, you're in Boracay! You can choose whether you'll ride a tricycle or you'll take a walk. Take a walk if the weather is nice, if you don't have lots of stuff with you and if you don't have me as a companion. Haha. You can reach even from Station 3 to Station 1 with your bare feet.
Plane Ticket = Php150++
Van from the Airport to Caticlan = Php200/head
Environmental Fee = Php75
Terminal Fee = Php100
Boat Fee = Php25
Tricycle Fee = Php10/head
So that's it. I hope that this post is helpful. Until our next trip!
