air plane fare to Boracay

Could anyone provide a rough estimate of how much is the plane fare from to Boracay and also hotel costs for one person? In Philippine pesos?

How much money do I need roughly to enjoy Boracay? Where does the plane land and is the plane good enough?

Will appreciate any info. Thanks

No airport on Boracay. Nearest airport is Caticlan., next nearest is Kalibo and bus or van to Caticlan.

You then take ferry to from Caticlan to.Boracay.

Book in advance for best airline prices. The further ahead, the better.

AirPhilippines/PAL , Cebu Pacific, Zest Air and others fly to Caticlan,

Just AirPhilippines/PAL and Cebu Pacific to Kalibo.

Look at top questions on right side of page for information on hotels etc.

Excellent SEAir (book through www.tigerairways.com) also fly from Manila NAIA terminal 4 (much easier and quicker to negotiate than TY3, although also much older) to Kalibo, which is a one and a half hour van ride from Caticlan. South West tours also operate vans between Kalibo and Caticlan.

Many previous visitors have commented for best value fares, fly from Manila NAIA to Caticlan outbound but on the return, pay a cheaper fare from Kalibo to Manila NAIA.

My choice would be AirPhilExpress outbound to Caticlan, SEAir back ex Kalibo.

With AirPhil, try to get an early or late morning flight as the last afternoon flight may be cancelled if there is unpunctual running as Caticlan is a daylight hours airport. That said, at this time of year punctuality is pretty good notwithstanding the tarmac wait to takeoff once the plane has departed the gate, given Manila's busy airspace (although there was a small reduction in the number of flights in 2012 duie to airlines switching to larger planes).

Zest also fly Manila NAIA - Kalibo and return from T4, but I prefer SEAir as it seems slightly more professional.

What are your requirements for accommodation? Aircon? Hot water? Or basic fan bungalow? What do you like to do? Party all night? Chill? Watersports? Is the plane good enough for what? Please narrow it down slightly. :)

I ignored the bit about about the plane. If it wasn't fit to fly then it wouldn't....

P1200 to Kalibo from Manila is what we paid more than once recently on Zest.

our ticket was 588 Clare on zest, but when they were done adding in charges, final price was 1200.
