(Warning!) Transportation To Boracay…
Like I said above, it’s only 315 km away from Manila and takes less than hour flight.Actually there are two routes for flight. A. Caticlan Airport Route and B. Kalibo Airport Route; The first route would be much better for you, because kalibo Airport requires a 2 hour transfer from the Airport to Jetty Boat.So, your transportation, which is supposed to be less than one hour, will be about 3 hours then.Asian Spirit, SeAir and Interisland Airlines fly to Caticlan Airport.You’d better choose one of these.If you can’t find an available flight then Air Philippines, Philippines Airlines and Cebu Pacific fly to Kalibo.
The flight rate to Boracay is about 150 – 170 dollars.You could find cehaper or more expensive tickets depend date, season etc.But it won’t differ so much.
