Hi, my name is Antonio from spain.I'm arriving in cebu on 30th november and I'd like to go to boracay on 1th december or maybe on 2th , I dont know yet.
Could someone tell me how to get to boracay?
Can I do it in the same day?
I have an idea.I have to take a bus to Toledo, then to take a boat (Ro-Ro) to San Carlos, again bus to Bacolod. From there to Iloilo on boat and at least bus to Caticlan.
I need to know the timetables of these travels.
How long does it take me to get to different places?
How often does the bus and boat run?
How much can it cost me?
thank you for everything
ps. some web-page where to see all this.

hi, i've been checking out flights to boracay
....there's no need to go through iloilo. you can fly directly to caticlan, then take any of the numerous ferries to boracay.

check out asian spirit
they have flights from cebu to caticlan at 1400-1510 daily.
one way fare is PHP 1950

now, can anyone help me on how to get to caticlan from bacolod? i can't find any direct flights:(

I flew from Boracay to Cebu last year. Only takes about 50 minutes. Asian Spirit (as already mentioned) is the airline. They fly to Caticlan and then you get to boracay by boat (the boats are so frequent that don't worry about a timetable, i think the journey across only took about 40 minutes). The boats stop off at 3 points on White beach and you can just jump off at whichever one you want. Some travel agents have specials on offer so it may be cheaper to book a flight when you are in Cebu. I would definitely fly as it is cheap and saves a lot of time.
