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.
