How to get to Guimaras Island (from Iloilo City)

Saturday, August 18, 2012

The Island of Guimaras is close to Iloilo Harbor. It was once part of Iloilo but now a province in its own right. It is reachable by motorboat and travel time usually takes 15 minutes.

From Ortiz Wharf in Iloilo, board the boat to Jordan Wharf (Guimaras). The fare is 14php per head (as of 2012). At the port, you need to drop by the tourism office and register. People would easily recognize you as tourist and they would offer a tricycle or jeepney ride. We were 13 in the group so we took the jeepney and we paid 550php.

If you don't know which resort to go to, you can ask the tourism officer. They would give suggestions like which resort is nearest and most accessible. 
You can contact the Tourism Office at (033) 2371134
and visit Guimaras website for more info.
Happy travel! :)
