Getting there: Boracay is served by two airports – Caticlan and Kalibo. The flight from Manila to both airports is about one hour long. However, Caticlan offers the shorter route. From Caticlan airport, you only need to take a 20-minute boat ride to reach Boracay. From Kalibo, you need to travel by bus or private minivan for about 2-2.5 hours to Caticlan and then take the boat ride to Boracay.
