What a beautiful day we had on Boracay today!
Yours truly, however, was mostly indoors helping the sun-seekers plan their Boracay trips. Today inspired me to blog about one of the most common questions I get asked, how do I get from Caticlan to Boracay?
It’s understandable that people are a little worried about this leg of the trip. With all of the careful planning for one’s ultimate Boracay getaway who wants to get stuck out in the heat in Caticlan without knowing what to do next? Luckily it’s not that hard.
Let the curtain be pulled back and the mystery revealed!
The simplest way to make the trip is to book your transport through MyBoracayGuide.com via this page: www.MyBoracayGuide.com/transportation.html This no hassle all-inclusive transport gets you from either Caticlan or Kalibo airports to your hotel’s front door quickly and conveniently.
If you would like to make the trip yourself here are the easy to follow instructions:
1. Caticlan Airport to Caticlan Port – After getting out of the small airport go to the right. There will be a line up of Motor Tricycles (trikes). The ride costs 50 PhP per trike for the five-minute trip to the port.
2. Caticlan Port to Boracay Port – The Jetty Port has Bangka pump boats that ferry between the Caticlan mainland and Boracay Island from Sunrise to Sunset. There are sometimes ferries after dark, but not reliably so. The Bangka trip is 25 PhP, however non-residents also pay a 50 PhP environmental fee, and a 50 PhP Terminal fee. You need to get these tickets outside the Jetty Port before you enter. The trip from mainland to the island is 20 minutes. If you have heavy luggage, there are porters to assist you at 20 PhP per item tip.
3. Boracay Port to White Beach – Depending on the season, you will arrive at one of two Boracay Ports – Cagban Port in the High Season and Tambisaan Port in the Low Season. The distance from either to White Beach is about ten minutes. There will be a long line of Motortrikes to take you from the port to White Beach. This trip is 100 PhP per motortrike, or 150 PhP if you are foreigner.
4. White Beach – The Motortrikes cannot go to the actual beach, but will leave you on the Main Road with a path that leads down to White Beach. The larger paths have pedal trikes that can take you down to your resort, or you can walk the five minutes. The Motortrike drivers should know the right drop off place for most Boracay hotels.
As you can see, getting from Caticlan to Boracay isn’t as hard as one might think. Remember, if you don’t want to worry about it and choose to have all of this taken care of for you, we at MyBoracayGuide can help you arrange transport via www.MyBoracayGuide.com/transportation.html
