Backpacking to Boracay Island

NAIA Terminal 3

From the Metro going to NAIA Terminal by commute, read here: Commute to NAIA Terminal.
Beside Kalibo International Airport, there are different modes of transportation that you can choose to Boracay Island, via Jetty Port.  In backpacking, what I suggest, always ask the guards on duty or sales lady at the airport if where you can take public utility vehicles. In Kalibo, buses and vans bound for Jetty Port can be found near the main entrance of the airport.

Jetti Port
During my trip to Boracay, after deplaning, all the passengers proceeded to the exit point. Since I don’t have any check-in baggage, I walked directly to the EXIT area and a lot of drivers, with uniforms, were waiting for their passengers. While standing and checking my itinerary near the exit, one driver approached me if where I am heading to, so I briefly answered “to the Jetty Port.” Then he asked me if I have companion, then I answered back “I am alone” and he explained to me that he’s waiting for his passengers. Suddenly, he offered me a ride in his trip to Jetty Port.  Since it was already 6PM, I grabbed that trip.  Our trip was more than an hour and I paid 200 pesos.

I got off the van just few meters from Jetty Port’s main entrance and bought a pump boat tickets. If you prefer fast craft or large water vehicles, you can do that, but each trip is based on their regular schedule. The, 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.  Travel period from Jetty to Boracay Port is within 10-15 minutes. Life jackets are available while sailing.

At Boracay Port, just a short walk, you can find the tricycle terminal that you can rent going to your destination (Station 1, 2 & 3) just tell the driver and they will bring you there with smile; resort shuttles can also be found there.
