FAQ and Things to Know about Airport Transfers in Boracay Island
How much is airport transfer from Caticlan to Boracay?
The airport transfer from Caticlan to Boracay using public transport usually costs around 1000 pesos ($18 US) per person in 2022. This price includes your ferry ticket, environmental & terminal fees, taxes plus your e-trike ground transport to your hotel. However, the price may vary depending on the season and the type of transport that you choose. I recommend booking a package airport transfer like this to save a lot of hassle plus you get to skip the queue at the airport and the ferry. But if you want to travel in style, then a private speedboat then a car or van would be a better choice. Whatever you do, just make sure to book your transfer in advance to avoid the long queues at the airport.
How much is the terminal fee in Boracay?
If you haven't pre-booked your airport transfer which includes the ferry ride and just turn up at the Caticlan jetty port terminal then you will need to pay Php 100 ($1.80 US) per person for the Terminal Fee. It is the same fee when you leave Boracay too.
Which is better Caticlan or Kalibo?
Caticlan is the preferred airport for those headed to the island of Boracay because it's much closer. However, Kalibo airport is more affordable and has more flight options. So it really depends on what's important to you. If you're looking for an easy commute and don't mind spending a bit more, go with Caticlan. But if you want to save a few bucks and don't mind a longer journey, Kalibo is the way to go.
