Having real difficulty in locating painless way of getting to Puerto Galera from Caticlan by Ferry - RORO etc..Any suggestions appreciated.
Considering the area is surrounded by sea, I am surprised at the lack of day sailboats to rent.
Hi John! No direct boat and plane routes from Caticlan to Calapan, though there's a RORO route Caticlan-Roxas port in Oriental Mindoro. It's on the other side of the Mindoro island. Check out this site i found - www.gophilippines.ph. If you plan to take the plane you can use route Caticlan-Manila-San Jose via Asian Spirit. Check their site www.asianspirit.com
Hope this helps
Boat from Caticlan to Roxas Port then overland (van/2hrs) to Calapan.
Thanks [VT member 93f85],
Reeya, like your picture of you taking a picture !
Would you happen to know any details of the boats/ships that go there and how frequent?
Best - John
I actually did the other way around so have no idea on the times. If I remember right the boat from Caticlan arrived at Roxas port around 9:30-ish AM so give or take 2 hrs before that is the departure. Or better yet go to the tourist center at D Mall in Boracay for a more accurate info.
