Where to rent a car in Kalibo
Kalibo does not have formal car rental agencies. However, travelers may ask their hotels to lead them to locals who are willing to rent out their private vehicles and lead them to their destinations. These private vehicles come with drivers, and can be rented by schedule. Costs vary between 1,500 pesos to 3,000 pesos, depending on the extent of use. Otherwise, travelers should just stick to public transportation; buses, taxis (rare), habal-habal (moto-taxis), and tricycles are aplenty here.
What to expect when renting a car from Kalibo
Road conditions in Kalibo are fine, with paved highways and almost no toll roads. Locals also drive safely, and traffic is almost nowhere to be found. Apart from some roadblocks and motorcycle riders that weave through the roads, riding around is definitely a breeze.
Getting to your destination
Boracay is acknowledged as one of the best beaches in the world, and what is not to love in here? Its pristine white sand, clear waters, and warm climes are pretty much the most inviting and hospitable of most of the beaches in the Philippines. No wonder that travelers from all over the world flock to this little blip.
Boracay can be reached by heading out to Osmena Avenue and Aklan West Road towards the coast, and then taking the Caticlan-Boracay Ferry there. It would probably best to leave the rental car within the Kalibo area and then shuttling towards the ferry port than risking bringing the car in. You’d probably not need it in the island of Boracay.
Dubbed as the seafood capital of the Philippines, Roxas yields the best and the most savory fish meats and shell fish that will get travelers in frenzy. Ask for a local ‘dampa’ area, where you can buy fresh fish and have them cooked to your liking.
