Gateway To Boracay

Kalibo is the capital town of Aklan and as such is the center of political, social, economic and religious activity. It is also the venue of the province's most popular tourism and religious festivity, the Sto. NiƱo Ati-atihan. Kalibo used to be the only gateway to Boracay before the Caticlan Airport was opened. Now, tourists aboard international flights from Korea, Shanghai,China and Taipei,Taiwan arrive regularly at Kalibo Airport, making Kalibo a top tourist drawer of Aklan aside from Boracay.

The first time we went to the Island of Boracay, we took a plane to Kalibo, Aklan and from there, took a jeep to Caticlan. The roads were rough then, so our bodies were not only battered, but full of dust from head to toe. Thanks to infrasturcture development!! Today, Kalibo's roads are paved so we had a pleasurable ride in an airconditioned van from Caticlan to the Kalibo Airport.
