Boracay Island, being the beach capital in the Philippines, is no doubt the most visited destination in the country. It is also internationally acclaimed as one of the best in the world by international travel magazines and publications.
The island is blessed with a lot of beaches characterized by powdery white sands. It also boasts of crystal clear waters, beautiful scenery, and every aqua sports available. Plus, there are lining restaurants, bars, pubs, hotels, and even department stores just within the beach area!
These are some of the many reasons why a lot of people, locals and foreigners, are enticed with what the island can offer.
How to Get There
There are two main airports in Boracay - Kalibo International Airport and Caticlan Airport. The former is the more popular airport and is frequented by foreigners and travellers coming from provinces and cities that are not from Manila or Cebu. From there, you can take a jeepney or an L300 PUV (Public Utility Vehicle) or renting a private van is also an option. If you want to save money, that's the best way to go.
Caticlan is accessible through direct flights from Manila or Cebu. Unlike Kalibo Airport, it only takes a few minutes to get to the port going to Boracay. It does come with a steep price though.
Van Rentals in Kalibo vs. Commute
Once you’ve went through all each stuff you need to do to get out of the airport, drivers will meet you outside offering you rates and services to Caticlan. The usual fare is sixty pesos but if you'd rather take a van, it'll cost you 150 pesos and up.
Want to save even more? Organize a group and rent a van in Boracay. This is the most comfortable way to travel to the port. These vans can accommodate 10 to 12 passengers and are all fully air-conditioned with professional licensed drivers that are accredited by the country’s Land Transportation Office. It costs about 1000 pesos depending on the main vehicle driver and the season but there’s always a room for haggling. So if you’re travelling, let’s say, with ten people, it would turn out to be 100PHP/head. The money your group saves as a whole will definitely help you!
