Boracay Island, Backpacking and Commuting Tips

From the NAIA International Airport, take a flight bound for Kalibo International Airport, the travel time is about an hour. Beside Kalibo International Airport, there are different modes of transportation that you can choose to go to Boracay Island via Jetty Port. Instead of booking private transport, I asked the guards or sales ladies at the airport about the public utility vehicles to Jetty Port. As instructed, I rode in a van bound for Jetty Port for 200 pesos and the travel time is about 2 hours. On the other hand, another option is via Batangas Port where you can board with 2Go Ferry to Caticlan, travel time is within 7-9 hours.

I alighted by the entrance of Jetty Port. Bought a pump boat ticket. You can choose between the fast craft or a pump boat. Each trip is based on their regular schedule. Then, a security check and an x-ray scanner for your baggage.

At the seaside area, the parking space for the pump boats, there are boat personnel shouting for passengers, so be alert! Travel period from Jetty to Boracay Port is within 10-15 minutes. Life jackets are available while sailing. At the port in Boracay, you need to register, then, a short walk to the tricycle terminal that you can rent to go to your destination (Station 1, 2 & 3) just tell the driver and they will bring you there with a smile; resort shuttles can also be found there.
