Ceres should have the signage ” Iloilo” Travel time is approximately 6 hours. There is  1 stopover for either lunch or dinner depending on your travel hours. The drop off is in Tagbak, Iloilo Ceres Terminal. How much is the bus fare from Caticlan to Iloilo? Fare is currently 391.00PHP. Note that most of the busses do not come with washrooms, so drink responsibly!

Boracay Guide Makes Iloilo Easy!

Clearly, the cheapest way to get from Caticlan to Iloilo or from Iloilo to Caticlan is by shared community bus. However, there are some instances where a bus just isn’t practical. We’d like to help. Consider calling or emailing My Boracay Guide to help you with your transfer if:

  1. You want door to door transport. From your home or hotel in Iloilo to your resort in Boracay, and vice-versa
  2. You have a large group – large group transfers are more cost-effective. Consider our private transfers.
  3. A bathroom warrior. If you’re the type of person who likes to stop along the way (for whatever reason), a private transfer is much more accommodating.
  4. You’re in a rush? private transfer is somewhat faster.
  5. You are Busy Busy Busy. If you just don’t have time to arrange the small details leave it to us.
  6. You need jetty port assistance. We’ll carry your bags, buy your tickets, and sweep you through to the other side in the fastest most convenient way possible, then get you to your hotel.  Do note that there is an add on fee for jetty port assistance, most guests, however, find this nominal fee well worth it.
