Caticlan to station 2, hotel pick up or trike?

the hotel seems pretty expensive at 1000p a person return.

3 of us is 3000 peso.

wouldn't a trike or van, taxi or something be much cheaper?

what should I do?

Book it thru southwest....with all fees at port its about 420 to your hotel one way...its cheaper on way back as lower fees..I think the price you quote does NOT include fees correct????

That is ridiculously expensive. Special transfers are not even necessary. Just take one of the many trikes outside Caticlan airport which will take you the two minute ride to the jetty. Buy a ticket to Boracay and board the banca (they leave every few minutes). On arrival in Cagban Jetty (Boracay) take a trike or multicab to your hotel.

Special tranfers during rainy season can make life much easier for newcomers...as boats do not always land in Cagban. The difference between southwest to a hotel and doing it on your own is negligible and not worth the hassle for new comers, especially if it rains. . IT is cheaper by about P120 each to do it own your own though....

The hotel rates above are ridiculous. The rates of Southwest Tours and Island Star Express are reasonable.

Cheaper is to do it yourself. It can be a hassle, especially if it's the first time and with luggage. More convenience costs a little more.

It's your holiday - you make the decision......
