i inquired from the cab driver who was taking us to Ceres Bus terninal in Iloilo, how much it would cost me if here were to pick us from Caticlan and back to Iloilo.
he didnt give an amount but asked me to make an offer, i said 3 K and he was fine with it. 3000 pesos is basically paying for the 2 trips he has to make since he will be originating from Iloilo.
i'm glad i didnt call him to fetch us since a great length of the road in Capiz was just abysmal. lots of pot holes and some are muddy gravel. Another thing is if the cab breaks down, how will he get help since his franchise doesn't ply that route normally. Ceres buses can always get roadside assistance from their other buses.
In rougher roads, the bus has much better traction and made it less bumpy in that area, If it were a car or even an SUV, i think it would have been a much tougher ride.
back to the poster:
take the bus at Tagbac Terminal, Jaro
230+ pesos (last Jan) one way.
i was able to take a 5:30 am bus (2 years ago) and arrived in boracay just before 12 noon. give yourself 5-6 hours for the bus ride.
