I suggest you fly into Manila where you have more options both for the flight from Singapore as well as the flight on to Caticlan/Boracay. Via Cebu is also possible but with much less flight options.

I would only suggest flying to Manila. Tiger Airways, Jetstar, AirPhil Express and Cebu Pacific are budget carriers going to Manila from Singapore. There are more than 40 daily flights going to Kalibo and Caticlan from Manila unlike Clark which is just 1x daily and Cebu 3x daily.

The Caticlan airport is right to the harbor where you will ride a boat to Boracay. There are buses, trikes that you can use 5 minutes or less through narrow streets, or you can walk. Kalibo airport however, is around a 90 minute ride to the same harbor. The difference is that the Kalibo airport's runway is long and accomodates airbus jet planes, while Caticlan is a short runway and accomodates small propeller planes (and some small jet planes). Expect a lot of crosswind when landing at Caticlan. I am now in Boracay and landed in Caticlan last December 26. Wow, a strong crosswind and the plane bounced 3 times before landing firmly on the runway.

Wikitravel has the answer:

<<<Caticlan or Godofredo P. Ramos Airport (IATA: MPH) (ICAO: RPVE) - Only small body aircrafts could land in this airport. Airlines with flights to and from Caticlan are South East Asian Airlines(SEAIR), Cebu Pacific Air and Air Philippines from Manila, Cebu and Clark. From the Caticlan airport, you can either take a tricycle (PhP 40.00) or walk (10 minutes) to Caticlan Jetty Port.

Kalibo International Airport (IATA: KLO) (ICAO: RPVK) - Compared to Caticlan's airport, the runway is able to hold aircrafts such as Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 however it is farther from Caticlan's jetty port which is 90 minutes away. Cebu Pacific Air, China Airlines, Philippine Airlines and Zest Airways connects Kalibo to Manila, Taipei, Shanghai and Seoul. There are minivans, vans, coasters and buses that serve travellers between Kalibo International Aiport and Caticlan Jetty Port. Be sure to ask if your ticket includes a ferry to Boracay (₱200 for a van and ferry), and how much the additional environmental taxes will be (a total of ₱125 on top of your tickets).>>>

It is also possible to fly tiger air Singapore to cebu, then fly Cebu to Caticlan with Airphil express. I found that a cheaper alternative than flying Singapore to manila.
