Cheapest transfer from Kalibo Airport to D'Mall

Hi guys,

I'm going to backpacking to Boracay and trying to save money as much as possible. Do you know the cheapest way from Kalibo Airport to D'Mall. I once read on a blog that stated "From Kalibo Airport, you can take a van to the port (at most 2 hrs, P200). At the port, you can take a pump boat (P25) or a ferry (P50). You also have to pay a terminal fee (P100) and an environmental fee (P75). From the port, take a tricycle to D’ Mall (20 minutes, P250)."

Does this rate is still applicable? Thank you! :)

Cheapest option will be a Jeepney from Kalibo to Caticlan. Pay your environmental fee and get on the next boat to Boracay. Then cheapest when on the island will be to walk.

Southwest charge door to door 500Php.

Your prices above work out to be more.

To me any savings you can make by DIY is minimal and the inconvenience increased.

Hi @tommomelbourne

Thank you for your help. I just booked my transfer with Southwest tour online. What i want to ask is, will they be able to drop me at Fairways & Bluewater Newcoast Boracay? Because it stated that the door to door service is for resort/hotel in Station 1,2 and D'Mall. Will they charge more for this?

You might wonder why i care about the transport cost so much but end up staying at Fairways & Bluewater Newcoast Boracay. I actually book this hotel by mistake and it took so much from my budget so that's why i have to saving more money for other things.

Thank you again for your help!

If you are landing at 9pm in Kalibo you should go with Southwest. They are your best bet for night transfer, specifically if your plane is late.
