Hi reader! I know you came to read this blog to find some assistance for your trip to this awesome Island. I am writing this blog due to public demand, specifically by my friends & readers in Manila. I hope this travel guide will supply the details needed for your Boracay vacation.
This Travel Guide aims to reveal the answer to the question “HOW TO REACH & EXPERIENCE BORACAY?” *a frequently asked & requested topic by my readers.
Unfortunately, there are no direct flight’s to Boracay Island. Visitors take plane rides or fly to either Caticlan (closer airport) or Kalibo (A little bit far compared to Caticlan airport but are sold with cheaper flight fares). I thought of listing down the airline companies that offer trips to Boracay to aid my readers a better guide for their upcoming adventure.
Airlines that cater services to reach Caticlan / Kalibo Airport:
1. Philippine Airlines
2. Cebu Pacific Air
3. Sky Jet Airlines
Tip: Book flights 3-4 months prior to your planned vacation, plane fares are way cheaper when booked early. Watchout for promo fares, the cheapest tickets usually begin at 699PHP /pax (All in-One way) *prices are subject to change w/o prior notice. NEVER book flights 7 days prior to your desired date, rates are very expensive when booked a week before your flight!
To inquire for budget rates check out ACF Ticketing Services. They usually post updated promo fares that are up for grab!
II. Ride a vehicle to Caticlan Jetty Port
Straight from the airport, there are rides offered to directly drop you to Caticlan Jetty Port.
- From Kalibo Airport: A 45 min. ride in air-conditioned vans / busses can bring you to the Caticlan Jetty Port.
