the farthest i've been to North of Iloilo is in Capiz that's because my grandmother is from Dao. the last time we traveled there was when i was still 9years old. so this trip from Iloilo to Caticlan will definitely be one memorable ride.after a day visiting the churches of Molo, Guimbal and Miagao in Iloilo and hanging out with Redlan (hosted our overnight stay at Century 21), Demoie and Wilman at Smallville, we have to take a short sleep as we travel to Caticlan by 6:00am. that means we will wake up 5:00am.during this travel, i'm not planning to sleep because i normally enjoy road trip views. specially if it's my first time to take that route. i have with me a map of Panay island to check out the towns we were passing. we crossed the different towns of Panay island's provinces Iloilo, Capiz and Aklan.i particularly like the part from Passi to Dao as you see sugar canes and rice fields on both sides. upon entering the town of Kalibo, we were immediately welcomed with the Ati-Atihan designed arc.from there we had a light lunch at the Kalibo terminal and continued our way to Caticlan. this trip will be less than an hour.the way from Kalibo to Caticlan was the best part as you'll be traveling on coastlines where you see hills on one side and scenic coastal view on the other side. it was like traveling to Baguio where instead one side is a view of Sibuyan sea.after 6hours and thirty minutes of travel, we finally arrived at the Caticlan Jetti Terminal which will then transport us to Boracay by boat. just a five-to-ten-minute ride to the island of Boracay. here's a time-by-time trip from Iloilo city to Caticlan Jetti Terminal:
