Kalibo to Boracay

My flight will touch down at Kalibo at about 5pm. Can i know if i can catch the bus and ferry to Boracay? Any clue approx what time (duration) that i will reach Boracay?

My departure flight is from Kalibo at 8am. This is a headache... how best can i arrange so that i dont miss my flight back?

1. Should i stay on the island and leave in the wee hour?

2. Should i stay in Caticlan and leave at 4/5am? is there transport at that hour?

3. Should i stay near Kailbo airport? Is there any lodging near there?

4. How long it takes to travel between Caticlan to Kalibo?

Thanks for your advice in advance

If it is me, I would make the crossing to Boracay.

The time needed is around 90mins to 120mins from Kalibo to Caticlan.

A) 5 PM arrival Kalibo is no problem. You should be between 8 - 9 PM at your hotel in Boracay. For detail check the "Top questions about Boracay. Advisable to book in Advance transfer including the fees either through Southwest Tours or Island Star Express

B) The return trip takes the same time as the trip coming to Boracay. It's advisable you sleep the night in Kalibo as you have to check in latest 6:30 AM at Kalibo airport. You can leave Boracay at 5PM and be in Kalibo at 7 PM. Marzon Hotel in Kalibo is near the airport, has decent clean rooms and a swimming pool.

No problem going to Boracay from Kalibo even if your flight would be delayed by a few hours, plenty of time to spare.

I also advise you to stay in Kalibo so not to miss your morning flight. The 8am flight from Kalibo is not really intended for those staying in Boracay as it all takes is a rough sea between Boracay and Caticlan for you to miss your flight.
