  • Dawn

    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.

    Thanks.

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Philip

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

  • Michael

    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!

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Tin Dino

    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.

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Cmend

    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

    • Aklan

      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.

      • Cmend

        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.

        • Aklan

          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.

  • mikeamorsam

    when we go home how much will it cost us to go by boat? will it be the same 25 boat ticket. terminal fee 100 and enciro 75

  • Marielle

    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?

    • Aklan

      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.

  • charo

    we are a group of 25 arriving at kalibo at 7pm, can we still get a ride in going to caticlan and then to boracay?

  • ailane

    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?
    tnx

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Ael Mae Flores

    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. :)

  • oliver

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

  • Niño

    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?

    • Aklan

      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.

  • joy

    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 :)

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Adrian

    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?

    Thanks!

    • Aklan

      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

  • Leyzel

    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 :)

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Ruth Jimenez

  • elaine

    Hi! We are planning to go to boracay next month for 5 days but we want to visit the cathedral & bakhawan eco part in kalibo. Do you think it would be better if we tour the kalibo first before going to boracay?(we will arrive in kalibo airport @7:30am or before our flight back to manila which will be @ 10:00pm? Also, can you please tell me what is the best and cheapest way how we can go to sto nino cathedral from kalibo airport. Thanks

    • Robert

      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.

  • Edhz

  • Hello,

    I just want to ask because my flight from Kalibo to Manila is 6:55am so my concern is there a shuttle van that we can ride from caticlan to Kalibo airport around 4am???

    • Robert

      Hello Ryan, Dont forget you also need to get from Boracay to Caticlan via water. Unless you organise a private boat no commercial boats travel that early. A better option may be to stay in Kalibo overnight.

  • Chary

    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!

  • lucy

    we want to ride a jeepney to caticlan
    what are we going to ride from kalibo airport to jeepney terminal,,please help me

    • Aklan

      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.

  • irish

    Hi, Do you have any contact number of the van we can rent from kalibo airport to caticlan? Thank you!

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Rhedd

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

    • Aklan

      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.

  • Annie

    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?
    Thanks

    Annie

    • Aklan

      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.
