From Airport

From Cebu or Airport via Liloan:


This is the fastest way. Mactan-Cebu International Airport, Lapu-Lapu Airport Rd, Lapu-Lapu City, 6016 Cebu to Catmon, 6006 Cebu

Cheap and Saves Time: White Taxi to Titays Liloan north of Cebu City P160-P200.

TIP: If you like the driver ask for a fixed price to Catmon!

Negotiate to P1500 or P2000 or to JM Catmon on main highway less P300.

Then get any north bound bright yellow CERES bus which may not be air conditioned to Catmon town ~ 100mins.
Tell the bus conductor - JM Marketing in Catmon. Cost in 2017: About P68 to P78 ~ the air conditioned bus is p10 more than the regular service.

Bantayan Island

Leaving in the morning.
A super unique island hopping experience, available most times as large ferry service. A relaxed island with white sand beaches and no hills; a safe ferry ride from Hagnaya. Photos Bantayan »»

North Cebu

Even more adventures

Bantayan, Leyte, Negros, The Comotes
Travel by ferry or bang boat! (The local boats usually have no muffler.)

My personal favorites are:

  • Capitancillo Wikipedia for diving
  • Guintacan Island (for everything)
  • Thresher sharks

    This is an easy day trip but for diving best to be overnight or early departure. Best Thresher diving in the mornings. My Shark Photos »»
    A super unique experience if you are a SCUBA diver. Christopher has dfone this mamy times. For overnight, stay at the White Sand Bungalows to be in a native house on the beach.
    From Maya or Bantayan Is to Catmon less than 80 km. The roads improve (get faster due to less traffic) and Bogo to Maya is mostly flat. Photos »»
