  1. Hi may tanong lang po. Yng flight ko po kasi ay 8PM to kalibo so makakarating ako sa jetty port ng mga 11?12? May ferry pa po ba during that time???

  2. Hi po just want to ask how much po ba pag mg hire ng private van from kalibo to caticlan?Bale lima kami pupunta. Thanks in advance sa reply.

    • Hi! Per person ang counting nila sa van. Kung plan nyo ang maghire he whole van for yourselves, seating capacity ang count nila. So, possible mga 2k. Thanks.

  3. group of around 35pax kami coming from manila. we will be arriving at kalibo airport, kng sasakay kmi ng bus going to caticlan ang magiging expenses lng nmin are as follows:
    bus fare – 200
    terminal fee – 100
    envi’l fee – 75
    boat fare -25 (this one is the fare payment from caticlan port to catagban port right?)
    and how much nman po ang fare from catagban port to the hotel? what will be the best option to take?

    • Yes, yan po ang possible expenses nyo. From Cagban to Hotel, 20pesos per person po. Mas mabuti rin siguro na icheck ninyo ang Southwest transpo. Dahil grupo kayo, mas maganda na duon na lang kayo mag-paarrange ng transfer. It will be the same amount, no hassle and you will be comfortable. You can book them online. Thanks.

  4. Hi po.. tanong lang po ako.. mula po boracay papunta ako ng kalibo airport, magkano po ba pamasahe xa bus pag na i drop na po ako nang ceres sa hintuan ng buses pamunta ng airport? Tsaka ilang minutes?

  5. Good day Aklan,

    Can we make it to Boracay Island on the same day if our Kalibo ETA is at 9:30pm? We don’t want hail a boat for 2000Php though, we wanted to avail the cheapest transpo as possible

    Thank you,

  6. Hi! Our estimated time of arrival at Kalibo airport is 6:10 PM, our flight is at 5:10PM but in case the flight will be delayed and we’ll arrive late, are there still vans available from Kalibo airport? thanks

    • Hi. If you mean van terminal in the city proper,yes, 100pesos per person. But from the airport you have to take tricycle to the terminal. Whereas, if you ride the van from the airport, it will be 200pesos to Caticlan. Thanks.

  7. Our flight on sept will have an Eta 9:05 pm from Mnl to Kalibo. Will there be any available yet safe mode of transpo for us to reach Caticlan Jetty port? Thank you!!

  8. Good afternoon aklan…we are a family of 6. Do we need to pay 100 pesos each for the airport tricyle in going to L300 Van terminal? Or 100 pesos per way? Thanks for the info…

    • Hi. 100 pesos per trip. But since you are 6, the driver may tend to ask for higher fee. Or they may divide you into two tricycle. Things like that can happen.If you are going to Caticlan, vans and transpo are available at the airport, no need to go to the terminal. Thanks.

    • Hi. This is maybe a late reply. Van ang sasakyan mo from Roxas to Kalibo, then drop to Ceres terminal. Thanks.

  9. Good day Aklan,

    Can we make it to Boracay Island on the same day if our Kalibo ETA is at 6:30pm? We don’t want hail a boat for 2000Php though, we wanted to avail the cheapest transpo as possible

    Thank you,


  10. What is the schedule in of ferries and vans from Boracay going to Aklan Airport? We have a flight leaving Aklan at 10am.

  11. hi!dadating kami ng kalibo ng 11 pm..we booked for a local hotel in kalibo..may mga available po ba na tricycle ng hatinggabi?magkano po ang bayad hanggang kalibo town proper?

    • Hi.This is maybe a late reply. The available tricycle at midnight is airport tricycle which is 100 pesos rate. Thanks.

  12. Hi aklan..ETA po nmin sa Kalibo airport 1:30pm.. ask ko lng po magkano po cheapest fare from Kalibo airport to jetty port?. Ok po b ung GT express n van?. Ano po bbyaran & how much from jetty port to cagban port? trycycle fare from cagban port to d’mall if dalawa lng po kami pasahero?.thank you po

    • Hi, it’s maybe a very late reply. Fare are all in 200 rate per person. Vans and buses are available. Environment fee 100 plus terminal fee seventyfive pesos, then tricycle fare 20 and boat fare twenty five.Total is 420. Thanks.

  13. I found your site very helpful and informative. Hope you can give us advice on this: Our flight from Manila will arrive Kalibo almost midnight. Instead of staying overnight in the city, is it ok to take the van to Boracay at night time and just wait in the Cagban port till morning? Is the terminal at the port open overnite. Is it safe to stay there? I will appreciate it if you can provide information on this query.

    Truly yours,

    • Hi. I am sorry for the late reply. Yes, I think it is better to stay at Caticlan and wait for the earliest boat. I am not sure if the Jetty port is open 24 hours, but yes, it is safe to stay there even outside the port. Thanks.

  14. Hi Aklan, our eta is 7pm at kalibo airport, is it safe to travel to boracay in the evening specially with boat? Or is it better if we look for a place for one night and Im thinking of getting around in kalibo city the next morning before going to boracay? Are there any tourist spot in kalibo city ?

  15. Hi aklan,

    For the van, children 3years old and below will have the same fare as of adult kahit kakalungin sila? Thanks.

    • Hi. Sa van po ay seating capacity and binibilang, so kung kakanlungin naman po, wala po ‘yang bayad. Thanks.

  16. Hi aklan, Just want to ask kung magkano po ba yung fare kung sakali irent ang isang buong bangka as well as multicab or tricycle? we’re from kalibo. we are going to have a company’s outing. and yung capacity po. kung 20-30 yung per head multiplied by 100 person its 400-600. kung irent mo namin will it cost less?

    • Hi. If it is a company trip, it is more convenient to make arrangement with Southwest tours. They have a bus, and transfers from Kalibo to your Hotel in Boracay. Thanks.

  17. Hi aklan, ang port stop po ba ng mga boat sa caticlan eksaktong sa boracay stations na o kailangan pa ulit namin ng other transportation going to station 2? At kung may other ride pa ilan pa po at magkano? Thanks po.

    • Hi Joan! From Jetty port, (Caticlan) boat will dock at Cagban Port (Boracay). Tapos sasakay kayo ng tricycle papuntang station 2 or location ng inyong tutuluyan. Ang pamasahe ay 20pesos each. Thanks.

      • Hi aklan. I have my flight around 10am to kalibo airport. How can I get there from my hotel somewhere in caticlan as earlier? What is the best way to do para mapadali ang pagpunta ko dun ng hindi ako mahuli sa departure time ng flight ko going back to manila? Thank you and godbless. :)

  18. hi aklan, magtatanong lang po. yung flight kasi namin papuntang boracay ay June 08, 2015 @ 8:50pm… siguro baka 10pm na kami makarating ng Kalibo… mayroon pa kayang van going to caticlan ng ganung oras? palagi bang mayroong van kahit past 10pm na? another question, pagdating namin sa caticlan, nabasa ko kasi na from 10pm onwards, magbabayad na ng 2000 para sa bangka going to boracay…. ilan po ba ang capacity ng bangka? ilan yung maximum na pwede maghati hati sa 2000? hoping for your reply… thanks

    • Hi! Vans are available anytime kahit 10pm pa going to Caticlan. Ang bangka for rent at late hours are passengers boat as well. Hidi ako sure kung ilan ang capacity, but I’m guessing up to 20 persons.Have a nice day!

  19. Hi Aklan, good day. I am going to Odiongan, Tablas Island via Caticlan on Wednesday May 21, 2015. My ETA-Caticlan is 8:30am on the same day, i am wondering if i can still catch a boat ride to Odiongan after 8:30 am? 2Go vessels depart Caticlan at 8:30am per website info. Is there any other shipping lines that cruises between Caticlan and tablas island, whichever is nearer to Odiongan? Thank you.

    • Hi,
      Mayroong boat everyday papuntang Sta.Fe which is 30 or 1hr away from Odiongan. Hindi ko lang alam ang schedule pero nakasakay ako isang beses about 1pm. Thanks.

    • Hi! Napag alaman ko na ang boat for Sta.Fe is 9am.Sana makahabol ka, and hopefully may PM trip sakaling di nu mahabol. Thanks.

  20. Hi I would like to ask if there are still vans from kalibo going to caticlan at around 10:30PM? and are there many budget hotels near caticlan port? Thank you so much

  21. Hi ask ko lang po kung makakaabot pa kami sa last trip ng regular boat trip if 7:15pm pa ang dating namin sa Kalibo Airport. And magkano po ang mga babayaran sa van and boat?


    • Hi!
      I think makakaabot pa kayo (if no delays). Fare sa van is 200pesos and boat is 30pesos. You will also pay environmental fee of 100pesos and 75pesos for terminal fee. Thanks.

  22. Good day,
    Our flight will be arriving at 22:00 and I was wondering if there will be available buses/vans at that time. Also, does the P2000 boat after 10pm usually happen, because I want to be assured that I could share the payment with other passengers with flights arriving at night. Thank you so much!

    • Hi! i understand your dilemma. The rental of boats after 10pm is sure only I am not sure how many will be at the same flight going to Boracay. But it always happen na maraming late arrivals. The vans/buses are available at the airport. For option, you can arrange your transfer through Southwest Tours. They have booking online.They have tourist bus available from the airport, and transfer to Boracay.So, kindly check their web. Thanks.

  23. hi ask ko lang kung ako ay sasakay ng ceres bus galing kalibo papunta sa iloilo city sa fastcraft vessel ocean jet,saan ako pupuntang lugar?papunta ako sa bacolod.pag baba ko ng Bus ng ceres pano ako makapunta sa terminal ng ferryboat?thank you

    • Hi! Pagbaba ng Ceres, sasakay po kayo ng jeep Jaro-CPU (and other else) na route, at sabihin mo lamang sa driver na bababa kayo ng pier papuntang Bacolod. They will help you. May mga nakaparada namang mga jeep jan sa terminal ng Ceres. It is okey also to ask the driver kung ang route ba nila ay dadaan sa pier paBacolod. Also, while on the Ceres magtanong ka na rin sa conduktor kung anong jeep ba ang dapat mong sakyan,for more information. Nang sa ganun ay marami kang options. Thanks.

  24. Good day! We’ll be in boracay on May 3-5, but my friends want to take the roro going back to manila… Is it safe? Is roro available anytime in caticlan going to cubao? How do we go about it? Thank you for your help

    • Hi! Roro is safe especially this time of the year,(calm and no bad weather) only it is a long hours travel. You can purchase ticket at jetty port (roro ticket outlet) anytime you decide to go. They have night travel too, i guess. There are several buses you can choose or just commute(backpackers). Thanks!

    • Hi! Yes, there are vans and buses from Kalibo airport to Caticlan around that time. As long as there are flights at the airport, transportation to Caticlan is available. Thanks.

  25. hi good day,is there a straight trip from estancia to caticlan?and anong oras ung first and last trip.your answer will truly appreciated

    • Hi!
      There is no direct trip from Estancia to Caticlan, as much as I know. You may have to ride Estancia-Roxas then take another ride to Roxas-Kalibo, then Kalibo-Caticlan. I don’t know about last trip from Estancia, but Roxas-Kalibo last trip is 6pm (Vans) and Kalibo-Caticlan is up to 8PM (Ceres). Thanks.

  26. Hi!

    I just want to ask if you know any cheap accommodations in caticlan near jetty port? Problem is, my family and I are going to romblon after our boracay trip and it seems that the only schedule for a 2go boat ride would be at 8am. I was thinking that maybe we could spend a night day before and go directly to the port an hour before the schedule. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks so much!

    • Hi!
      I don’t know a specific place to stay at Jetty port, but there are several there. I will try to check those places next time I visit Boracay so I can have specific place to recommend. Thanks.

  27. Hi. Is there a van or bus available from caticlan jetty port to kalibo airport? Is there any time/schedule? And how much is the fare? Thanks!

  28. Guys.. daratingpo kamin kalibong 6:00 pm.. at makakarating kami ng caticlan ng 7:00 pm.. may boa pa po ba nun??

  29. how many ours from kalibo proper to caticlan when you ride a ceres bus,,,then if you will ride a van from kalibo proper to catiklan how many hours… if we will stay at kalibo,,can you recommend a cheap and clean hotel..thanks

    • Hi!
      With Ceres bus, it will take maximum of 1.5 hours same with the vans. The time travel can be shorten depending on traffic,time of the day, and passengers going on and off. Vans usually wait for passengers until it is full so the waiting may delay you. But vans will go faster since they will not pick passengers along the way if they are full. Ceres has comfortable seats and you will have smoother ride. The cheapest you can get at hotels will be 800 to 1k.You can refer to our hotel table for more info. Thanks.

  30. Good Day,

    Ask ko kung magkano lahat lahat (all in) ang babayaran from kalibo airport to caticlan to boracay to station 2?


    • Hi Jedd,
      The last time my sister exited to Australia last November, she pays 1620 plus terminal fee. I don’t have the exact details, but I hope that will give you an idea. Thanks.

  31. hi, we will be arriving at kalibo airport at 11pm. I would like to ask how much is the traspo from kalibo to caticlan jetty port, how long is the travel and how much is the traspo in the boat from caticlan to boracay.? Thanks.

    • Hi Steph,
      Kalibo Airport – to Caticlan Jetty Port is 200pesos. At least 1 to 1.5 hour travel. Regular boat is 25 (daytime) and 30(night time). However, your arrival seems very late for regular boat.There are boats available early at 4am up to 10 pm.Other times will require you to rent a boat for 2000P. This can be shared with other passengers. Kindly read this post for more info http://kalibo.org/cost-kalibo-airport-boracay/I hope it helps.Thanks.

  32. Hi! Ano po ang last trip from Kalibo going to Antique? Do you have the contact numbers ng terminal or bus line na may byahe papuntang Antique? Thank you!

    • Hi..Ceres Liner has trip to Antique…The last trip is between 4 to 5 pm. I got no contact number. Ceres terminal is located at Osmena Avenue, Kalibo. Thanks.

    • Hi Anne,
      Try inquiring at Southwest Tours. That’s the company which dominates the transfer of tourists from Kalibo Airport to Caticlan and Vice Versa. Other buses, don’t have route to Kalibo Airport. Thanks.

    • Hi Santi,
      I’ll be happy to explain it in details. From your hotel, you have to take a tricycle to Boracay port, that will cost you at least 20pesos. Then buy your boat ticket 25, and terminal fee 75 and take the boat to Caticlan. Rides to the airport are just waiting outside the jetty port. You can easily spot them because they made themeselves known to all passengers. I prefer you to ride a van direct to Kalibo airport for 200pesos. Hope that helps. Happy trip!

    • Hi Sphen,
      Yes, your flight seems very late. From the airport, you will travel about an hour or so to Caticlan.Your options are: stay in Kalibo and travel the next day to Boracay or just go directly to Caticlan, and take chances on finding a boat. Sometimes, there are people who also are in the late flights, and get together to hire a boat.You can be one of them. If not, you can also find a place to stay and rest for few hours and wait for early boat trip that starts at 4am. If you stay in Kalibo, you can find a place to stay for 800p plus tricycle ride from airport to hotel (100p). There is a place called airport inn which is walking distance from the airport if you do not wish to travel to town proper. Most of hotels are in town proper which is about 10-15min away from the airport.Hope these help. Don’t hesitate to ask again if I am a help to you. Thanks

      • Thank you for your response. If ever ill be going to kalibo ferry terminal going to caticlan, that would be at 1am. Do you think that there will be an available ferry that we can hire? the reason why because I already booked our hotel on that day. instead of renting the hotel in kalibo, it would be practical if ill pay it on the ferry boat…

        hoping for your response again… :)

        • Hi Sphenzer,
          Yes, there are boats available to be rented at Caticlan jetty port to Boracay that late hours. So, what you are going to do is ride a van or bus to Caticlan and rent a boat for 2,000 the least. You can also try booking with Southwest (Southwest Tours can be booked online or approach them at their booth at Kalibo airport as you arrived) because they usually have their own boat and transportation to your hotel.

  33. Hi,
    My flight reaches Kalibo around 8.10pm is it possible to reach Boracay at the same night or do I have to stay in Kalibo and take a ferry next morning. when is the last ferry form Caticlan? Also can I hire a private ferry (if yes how much it cost).
    Thanks a lot!

    • Hi Prsna,
      The regular boat to Boracay is up to 10pm. So, there is possibility you can catch it if you have no delays. Yes, you can hire a boat for 2,000 pesos or more in case regular trip is no longer available. I am sure you are not alone who have late flights. From what I have known from experience, there are several people who are traveling on late flights, so you can always find someone to share the rent with. Thanks.

  34. Hi, I have a flight arriving in Kalibo around 10:30pm. I plan to spend the night at Kalibo then head to Boracay the following day. Would you know what would be the earliest time that buses/vans will start going to the port? ANd would you have any recommendations where to stay in Kalibo? :) Thank you so much.

    • Hi Mariel,
      The earliest time is 4 or 5am via Ceres Liner or regular van to Caticlan. Fare would be 100pesos.There are several hotels/Inn in Kalibo, I can suggest the Municipal operated “Atiatihan Country Inn” at D. Maagma Street.It will be convenient for you because it is near the airport (10min away)and the Ceres terminal for early travel to Caticlan. Tricycle is the mode of transportation around the town that cost 8pesos. Airport tricycle is 100pesos. (Because of the late flight, regular tricycle is no longer available). Happy trip!

  35. Where can I buy bus ticket from Caticlan to Kalibo? How much is that? Or should I buy a tour from Boracay to Kalibo? Thanks alot

    • Hi Jane,
      Bus ticket from Caticlan to Kalibo is given as soon as you boarded. I am talking about regular Ceres bus trip from Caticlan to Kalibo terminal.But if you mean, tourist bus like Southwest tours, you have to book it online for 200 pesos. That is Caticlan-Kalibo airport trip or vice versa. There are regular vans to Kalibo, as well or a jeepney. However, if you’re going to Kalibo airport directly, I suggest to take the van (L3) for convenience.You’ll pay 200pesos to the airport and only 100 if you’re in Kalibo terminal. Happy trip!

  36. Hi,

    I have a very early flight from Kalibo Airport (5.00 A.M). Do i have to leave Boracay the day before or are there night buses available? Thanks.

    • Hi Youssef,
      Yes, I think it is more convenient for you to leave Boracay day before your early flight. Regular boat starts 4am, so you will be out of time to catch your flight. You can leave Boracay late afternoon to Kalibo. There are several affordable hotels/inns in Kalibo to spend the night. Thanks.

  37. Hi. I want to ask a question: I have early flight at 6:50am at Caticlan airport. I want to know is there any boat from Boracay to Caticlan airport at 4-4:30am?

    • Hi Hoa,
      Yes, regular boat schedule in Boracay start at 4am. So, it’s not a problem. Enjoy your stay in Boracay. God bless!

    • Hi Jacky,
      If you are coming from Kalibo airport, there are several vans and bus waiting for passengers there. As long as there is flight, they are there waiting and you have no trouble finding them because they approach every person coming out if they need a ride to Caticlan.Howevr, if you are going to Boracay, boat can be a problem. Hope you have considered it. Have a nice trip!

      • Hi …may I know if do they still have hours for van passengers because I’ll be at 6:15 in Kalibo airport. I think boat will be closed by 6pm. So what can I do? Thanks. Pls reply back.

        • Hi Anne,
          No worries,there are several vans waiting at the airport to Caticlan.Boat will be available until 10 pm. There are many passengers like you who have later flights going to Boracay, so transportation is not a problem.Enjoy your stay in Boracay. Happy trip!

  38. Hi I would like to inquire whats the earliest and last available van or any public transport from Kalibo to Roxas City? My flight for Roxas to Manila would be at 7 in the morning incase ill be staying at Roxas any nice comfy cheap inn you would recommend?

    • Hi Jaja,
      Earliest van to Roxas is 4am and the last trip is in between 5 to 6pm. I am not very familiar with inns and hotels in Roxas to recommend. A friend of mine recommend Julieta’s for nicer place and for cheaper she mentioned Capiz Lodge. I am aware that prices in Roxas is cheaper here in kalibo. So, you may able to get a place to stay from 6h to 1k. Thanks and happy trip.

      • Hi Jane,
        Considering your flight schedule, I would suggest for you to leave the island at 8am. Travel time from Caticlan to Kalibo is about 1.5hr. You should be at the airport at least an hour before the flight. So, if you leave at 8am,(considering the wait time, boat travel, and bus travel), you can avoid trouble. Thanks.

  39. Hello! Are there still available transpo going to Caticlan Jetty Port at around 1000pm? Arrival time is around pm. 0955 pm. Please? Thank you very much

    • Hi Danica. Yes transpo going to Caticlan is still available. As long as there is arrival, vans are waiting for passengers. However, if you are going to Boracay, regular boat may be a problem. Thanks.

  40. /’Hi, just want to ask how do we get a ride from caticlan going to kalibo airport? is there a van or bus? and how much will it cost per head?and do they have certain schedule, so at least we can manage the time prior to our departure time.thanks so much

    • Hi Aileen! Yes,there are several vans waiting to take you to the airport. It will cost you 200 pesos from Caticlan to the airport. It is about 1.5 to 2hour trip. The van leaves as soon as the seat are occupied, approximately every thirty minutes. Happy trip!

  41. Hi! :-) We are going to Mambusao, Capiz from Caticlan Jetty Port. Are there van/buses that passes that route? Can you suggest the most convenient transportation that we can use. (We’re travelling with kids). Thanks.

    • Hi Micheal! The best ride for you is Ceres bus going to Iloilo. It passes Mambusao, Capiz and is convenient ride. It will take you 3 to 4 hours from Caticlan.Ceres bus is available at terminal near Jetty port.Have a nice trip.

    • Hi Anne. they tend to increase the rate if passengers are more than 2 and lots of baggage.Also if you are going outside town proper, they raise their rate. Just keep on asking for lower price if they tend to raise. During night time, when you do not have a lot of choices, they really tend to raise their price. But actually, its 100 per trip, especially if your destination is just around town proper. Hope that helps, thanks.

    • Hi Arisse. There is a schedule bus going to San Jose Antique, Kalibo-San Jose. That is your ride and not the Caticlan bus. They have different route. I still have to check on Kalibo-San Jose schedule which I usually forget to do. I hope I can do that soon, so I may able to help you. Thanks.

  42. Hi,

    Is there transportation from Caticlan to Kalibo between 8pm to 10pm? We are planning to leave Boracay late to catch an early morning flight in Kalibo.


    • Hi Dawn. Yes, I think vans are still available from Caticlan to Kalibo until 8 or 9pm. I have heard they are available 24/7 as long as there are passengers, but I have to check on that to be sure. Thanks.

  43. hi…gyud eve just wanna ask if there are buses/vans operating on nov. 1 going back to kalibo from caticlan? Thanks in advance

  44. Hi. How long will it take to go from Caticlan to Estancia? How many transfers do I have to make? Correct me if I’m wrong — will it be Caticlan to Roixas to Estancia? How long is the total trip time? From Caticlan to Estancia? How much? Many thanks!

    • Hi Micheal. Estancia, Iloilo is 1.5 hours travel from Roxas City. I am not aware of direct trip from Caticlan to Roxas City. I hope there is to make your travel smooth. But if that is not possible, you can ride Caticlan to Kalibo.(van fare is 100) From Kalibo, there are several vans to Roxas city (fare is 100p.) Then another bus ride from Roxas to Estancia. I don’t know the exact fare but it would be between 100 to 150. Because you have to make several transfer, I can’t give you the exact travel time. From Caticlan to Kalibo, it will take you an hour or so. Then Kalibo-Roxas is 1 to 2 hours trip as well. I hope this info helps you. Thanks.

  45. Hi, our flight from Manila is 6pm on Nov. 29. And we will arrive probably at 7:30pm. Do you think if we arrive in Caticlan by 11pm, there will be a non private boat that can send us to Boracay? Thanks in advance.

    • Hi. If your arrival is 7:30pm at the airport,you can possibly catch the regular boat. Hwevr, if there are delays, say 11pm, availability of regular boat is a problem. Hope you can make it. Have a nice trip.

  46. Hi, i have read a lot of forums but i have cannot find the right answer. Can you inform me please if the tricycles in the airport going to kalibo town proper safe to ride at midnight? Thank you

    • Hi! yes, I can say it is safe. I have taken airport tricycle several times. However, it is good to take precaution at all times. If you are not from Kalibo, have someone to meet you at the airport. Have a nice trip.

      • Many thanks for this. i have called the hotel but they said that they don’t have the airport transfer service. perhaps i’ll book another hotel in this case.

        • Yes, most of the hotels in Kalibo has no transfer service.Anyway, I think you’ll be fine with airport tricycle. You have to pay 100p for the trip,make sure to close the deal before you ride. Some drivers tend to ask more. I can give you my number if you need more help while in Kalibo. Have a good trip.

  47. Our flight is arriving 11pm on a saturday, and we’re planning to stay the night in Kalibo til 6 or 7am. Are there van waiting in Kalibo airport that early? Because you said they follow airplane scheds but the next flight sched arriving is 10am?

    • Hi! Vans will be available earlier than that. As you arrive 11pm, there will be available vans in the airport.If you plan to stay Kalibo and travel the next day, you will find your ride outside the airport at van terminals or ceres bus terminal. (If the next arrival is 10 am as you said, available vans will be outside the airport in several van terminals) Thanks.

  48. Hi what time is the first trip via bus or van from kalibo airport to caticlan and vice versa. We’re arriving in kalibo almost 12midnight?

    • Hi! There are available bus or van in the airport anytime waiting for passengers. As long as there is a plane schedule, there are vans and bus waiting. The first trip of regular boat to Boracay is 4am. Have a nice trip.

  49. Hi, we booked a flight for october. We will arrived at Kalibo airport by 730pm maybe. If the travel time from kalibo to caticlan is almost 1 hour. we will arrived at the jetty port by 8pm or 9pm. Do we still have a boat to ride going to the island? Thank you. Please. :)

  50. Hello. We are planning to stay overnight in Kalibo before we go to Caticlan. Are there hotels near Ceres Transport that are cheap? Thanks!

  51. Hi, we’re coming to boracay on 3rd week of September. Our flight will be Manila to kalibo. What is the best way and how much it cost going to boracay?

    • Hi! There are many available vans or tourist bus waiting at the airport. It cost 200p to Caticlan.For me, that is the most convenient. From Caticlan, you will have short boat ride. Refer to the website for the payments. Thanks.

  52. if we chose Ceres bus as means of transportation from Kalibo to Caticlan, does the terminal of the said bus is near Kalibo airport? as well as if were going to ride the bus again from Caticlan back to Kalibo airport, is it near the jetty port? what is the last schedule of Ceres bus travel from Caticlan to Kalibo? is the fare still updated? thx :)

    • Yes, you can do that but you may get cheated riding a tricycle from the airport to the Ceres bus terminal since you are not a local. The Ceres terminal is about 10 minute ride from the airport. The local use to walk outside the airport and ride to regular tricycle. But since you are not local and probably with luggage, you may find it difficult. There is airport tricycle available but they charge 100p. So, it is more convenient to ride from the airport direct to Caticlan using vans or tourist bus.Have a safe trip.

  53. Hi,

    In case we decided to get all the seats in the Van from Kalibo to Caticlan, is that feasible? If so, would that mean we have to pay P 100 x 9 seats = P 900, right?


    • Hi. Yes, you can take the whole seating capacity. However,I think the seating capacity is more than 9 seats? If I am not mistaken they count the seats from 12 to 15(Filipino size) depending on the type of vans. And if you are coming from the airport to Caticlan, they charge 200p. I hope that helps. Thanks

  54. Hi. My arrival time is 5pm in Aklan Airport .Would I be able to catch up on the bus to Caticlan then the boat to Bora? Do you have any suggestion what station and Inn is good to stay at for a budget traveler? Thank you in advance :)

    • Hello. Yes,you can still catch up ride to Boracay. Transport to Caticlan is available at the airport.During this time, there are affordable place to stay. Many will approach you upon arrival at the port. It will range from 1.5k to 2k. Have a nice trip.

  55. Hi! My arrival time at Kalibo Airport is Sept.27,2014 7:55PM
    Will I be still able to catch a SouthWest bus or an L300 van going to Caticlan?

    • Hello Elaine, If I were arriving at 7;30 am I would definatly see the Kalibo attractions first. that gives you plenty of time to go to Boracy After. A try-cycle will get you to the Cathedral then from there to the Eco-park.

    • You can buy the bus ticket at the bus. The bus is the most comfortable. Jetty boat fees are not included. Prices are all current.

  72. hi..we will be arriving at the kalibo airport at around 12 midnight..is there any transport services going to caticlan port at that time?
    thank you

  73. Hello! If i have a flight out of Kalibo Airport at 9.30am on a Sunday, what time do i have to leave Boracay?

    Are there earlier ferry timings that i can take from the various boat stations?


    • Marie, there are many choices. Bus is the most comfortable way. As soon as you leave the airport terminal, you will see several.

  74. hi, our trip back to manila is 6am, need to go to kalibo airport, is there a boat or van available around 3am from caticlan? pls help.

    • Ranz
      The Buses and Vans will be running. You will have to hire a boat. It should not be difficult because there will be others from your flight also. You can split the cost.

  75. Hello meron pa bang available na boat when we will arrive in caticlan going to boracay around 6-7pm? Pls help us out.. thanks..

  76. Hi.. just want to ask if what is the last trip of bus or jeepney’s from caticlan to kalibo airport.? thank you so much!

    • There are plenty of jeepneys to Caticlan. You need to take a tricycle from the airport to the Caticlan terminal. There is a specific terminal area in the northern part of the town. But, because Caticlan is the farthest jeepney, they often operate after hours, and pick up passengers near the bridge. The tricycle driver will know where to take you. It should be about a 20 peso ride by tricycle to the terminal.

    • We don’t have contact numbers however, there is no trouble finding these people. There are at least four companies providing vans from the airport to Cataclan. They are very competitive, and will find you. When you walk out of the terminal and look like you have no ride, they’ll be asking you if you need a van. They operate 24 hours.

  77. Hi…Just wanna ask if what is the last trip of bus or any other transportation leaving Caticlan going to Kalibo?Thanks…

    • I believe the last Ceres bus is 8pm, but, there are L300 buses (9 passenger vans) that run all night long. There are planes flying out of the Kalibo airport from midnight till 5 AM. Just prepare a little earlier because you may have to wait an hour for a bus to fill up.

  78. Hi,

    Do you happen to know of a van that can accommodate 10 passengers in Caticlan going to Kalibo? And would you know how much it costs, please?


    • There are many Van traveling Caticlan going to Kalibo. there’s probably one every half hour. They can hold 10 people. The cost is 150-200 pesos per person. there may be an additional charge if there is a large amount of baggage.
