Not sure about transport you might have to take a taxi from the airport to the pier, don't know if a Jeepney runs there.

Tourist spots in Iloilo you will find a large list here


I'd recomend going to some towns outside the city like Guimbal, there's Racsos Woddland and Garin Farm (zoo like places) and Maig-Ao famous for it's magnificant Church, which is also on the world heritage list. A little more of an adventure go to the town of Igbaras and then head up Mount Napulak to Nadsadjan Falls (you might need a guide... and depending on the weather)

In Guimeras lots of beach resorts, I been on one near Jordan but can't remember the name, but if your looking to go a little further, look up Costa Aguada, it's on it's own island off teh coast of Guimaras... but on the other side from where the peir is where you get off coming from Iloilo.... think it was a 30-45mins drive across Guimaras and a 20mins boat ride to Costa Aguada.

Get a taxi from the airport to Ortiz Peir.It should be around 500pesos (more than that is a rip-off)and depends on the traffic should last 30 minutes.

Check Alubihud beach resort In Nueva Valencia or the island resort of Nagarao.

I just did this trip in a taxi and got charged 300. Its a good bit out.

Also if anyone is going to Guimeras I recommend a tricycle driver who is very honest and wont overcharge, I got a day trip with him around the island. He is also recommended in Lonely Planet guide book pg 307. Richard Caro +639206360970.
