From Kalibo Airport, travel by road (about two hours). There are many vans outside the airport that go directly from the airport to the Jetty Port in Caticlan (approx P300 ($6)/passenger).
Buses are available as well at the airport. You can take your chance with what is at the terminal (P200 ($4.50)) or book ahead via travel agencies such as Sourthwest Tours or Island Star Express, which can organize the entire journey to Boracay (P300-P450 ($6-10), including boat transfer).
Another option from Manila is to take a ferry boat. From Manila, travel by road (about two hours) to Batangas Port. Buses going to Batangas leave roughly every 30 minutes to one hour from Cubao or Buendia Terminals. Once on the ferry the journey will take about 10 hours and will arrive in Caticlan Jetty Port.
2GO is the preferred ferry company for travel. Private and shared staterooms are available, as well as dormitory style (with or without aircon). The cost for dormitory w/ aircon (Tourist Class) is P1000 ($22).
Once on Boracay
From Caticlan Jetty Port, there will be many bankas (small ferry boats) ready to take you to White Beach, Boracay, about 15 minutes away. Pay a terminal tax (P75 ($1.50)) and an environmental fee (P75 ($1.50)) at the port before boarding.
You'll need to wade in the water a bit so dress accordingly. For a small amount, boatmen will carry your luggage to shore.
Tricycles on the island will take you to the gym. Tell the tricycle driver you are going to Diniwid. The cost will be P180 ($4) for a private tricycle (meaning not shared). Once on Diniwid Road we are located roughly 250 meters from turnoff from Main Road. Look for our sign located at ground level on the right hand side of the road. From there walk a roughly 50 meter path and you have arrived at Legacy Gym.
Transportation back to your airport can also be arranged ahead of time through Southwest Tours. Door to door service is available with pickup happening in front of the gym and drop-off to your desired airport. The cost for travel to Kalibo Airport is P500 ($12), including boat, van, environmental and transfer fees.
