How to get to Boracay island

Visaya KarteThere are two small airports on northwest Panay island. The bigger, international one is in Kalibo and the other one is Caticlan airport right on the northwestern tip of Panay, that is only some minutes away from the island of Boracay.

Caticlan can only be reached from Manila and Cebu City by Philippines Airlines or Cebu Pacific Air.

Kalibo airport, that is located about a 90 minutes drive to the east of Caticlan, is connected to Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Airasia offers cheap flights from KL, while Singapore Airlines, Silkair and Tiger Airlines fly from Changi Airport in Singapore.

Most international airlines offer flights to Manila or Cebu.

Arriving at Kalibo airport, Buses, Mini buses and taxi cars are waiting to transfer guests instantly to Caticlan jetty. The costs are from 200 to 1000 pesos per person. It is possible to buy combi tickets for the bus and the boat for 250 pesos, but is not recommendable, cause the boat ticket is only 25 peso.

From Caticlan jetty it is only a 15 minutes boat passage to the pier on Boracay island, where pickups and tricycles are waiting to bring guests to their hotels.
