During our recent trip, the shuttle bus price from caticlan to kalibo airport was 175-peso
Buses – they are slightly more expensive than minivans but they are less frequent. There’s no guarantee that there’s a bus available when you decide to leave for Kalibo Airport from Caticlan. They are also slower, but arguably safer.
Bus Cost – 200 – 250 pesos
Private Cars – A private transfer is always available. But if you go for this option, it is better that you arrange it through your hotel, instead of getting it at the pier, for security reasons. It’s rare for locals to commit something illegal in this area as the local government tries hard to protect the thriving tourism industry here.
Private Cars Cost – Vary
5. Get in your vehicle, and prepare for the ride.
The travel time from Caticlan Pier is approximately 1.5 hours
A little tip: The ride from Caticlan to Kalibo is quite scenic. The landscape along the way is filled with rice paddies and coastal views. If you don’t intend to sleep, try to sit in the front alongside the driver or get a window seat on the left side of the vehicle for this trip.
6. Arrive at Kalibo Airport.
This airport is small and often crowded, as this is also an international airport. There are few choices when it comes to food and shopping. If you want to eat, I suggest eating before you leave Boracay or grabbing something outside the airport. Once you are inside Kalibo Airport, it’s hard to get out!
Many tourists do not know that when you fly out of Kalibo Airport, you have to pay a relatively hefty terminal fee. During our visit to Boracay, we didn’t know about this beforehand. Luckily we had enough cash. However, we saw some tourists being annoyed as they had already spent their remaining pesos, thinking that they were soon flying out of the country. So DO NOT FORGET to set aside:
200 pesos (approximately 5 USD) for the Domestic Flight Terminal Fee
750 pesos (approximately 16 USD) for the International Flight Terminal Fee.
So there it is a step-by-step guide on how to get from Boracay to Kalibo Airport.
