Getting to Boracay
Various routes lead to Boracay Island. The easiest and fastest way from Manila and Cebu is by air either to Kalibo or Caticlan. Schedules vary, so please check with the airlines. Another way is via ship from Manila, which will dock, depending on the weather, either a few minutes away from Caticlan or a little further away. And for people with more time and an adventurous streak there is the overland route from Cebu over Negros to Iloilo and from there to Caticlan.
