    Travelling in style

    by watersofmarch Updated Feb 28, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since none of us have been to CDO, we opted to hire a van to take us around. We got one through kuya adonis (09053619223) at 2000Php for 10 hours and 2200Php to take us to Balingoan Port on our way to Camiguin. It was very convenient for us since wer quite a big group and wont fit in one cab. If you're on a budget, you can get a cab and try to negotiate with the driver to come back and pick you up at a specific time.

    If you're just goin out for dinner or somethin, its very easy to get a cab. Cabs in CDO are a lot nicer than the cabs here in manila. I didnt even see a single kia pride cab! hahaha

    Taxi from the airport

    by anliz99 Written Sep 2, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Make sure you get a taxi that uses the meter. The ones parked there will ask you for 300-350 for a taxi ride to the city. Meter should only cost you 150-180. You can also ask the help of the policemen there so you don't get overcharged.

    Transpo to Mapawa

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're going to Mapawa Nature Park, you will need to 'rent' a taxi to go there. The rate we got is P400 one way. You can also ask them to pick you up for the same price. It's good to use this instead of the jeepney because of all the dust.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since there were seven of us, we contracted a van that took us from the airport to the city proper. It cost PHP 300 (PHP 43 per head). Contact the mobile number below and look for Adonis. He's pretty friendly and is punctual.

    The White Van of Kuya Henry

    by mauiiperry Written Jan 30, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My friends and I visited Cagayan De Oro. It's our first time to visit this Gorgeous place!

    Around Cagayan de Oro, we settled with KAGAY white water rafting tour package from CDO-to Dahilayan Park, Bukidnon for the Asia's Longest Dual Zipline, buffet lunch plus water rafting in the afternoon for only 2400 (inst it amazing??? hahaha! I'll post a different review for this haha) During our tour we meet kuya Brandon of KAGAY, he is our driver during our dahilayan tour. He is very accomodating and kind with trivias and facts while on our way to Bukidnon. (Good Job Kuya Brandon). Then before we transfer to a new ride. One of my friend asked for a tour also but this time at Iligan (actually I'm not part of the Iligan trip due to my flight schedule). Kuya Brandon suggested his friend with a white van (Grandia) also and thats Kuya Henry, my friends decided to avail his service and set time for pick up.

    The following morning, I woke up early also (though I'm not part of the Iligan tour, bitter??? hahaha). They were all in a hurry, somebody said, "nasa baba na yung driver, gising na" hahaha! They left the hotel as early as 7am. While tracking them on instagram and facebook, they went to Tinago Falls, Divine Mercy Church and Pasalubong centers. They wanted to pursue Maria Cristina Falls but due to the bad weather they didnt get a chance to visit the place. According to my friends, Kuya Henry pushed the trip to Tinago Falls, They said "Wala na ngang Cristina, Wala pang Tinago, Kaya pinilit talaga ni Kuya na Mapuntahan namin yung Tinago Falls" Good job kuya Henry!

    Anyways, remember its my flight also that day? Tadaaaa all flight were cancelled due to the bad weather! Okay and I'm back at the hotel and with my friends. They also booked Kuya henry for our morning flight. Another information that you need to know if you will visit Cagayan De Oro, The newly open airport, Lagunduin Airport, is almost one hour away from the downtown city of Cagayan, so if you will go to the airport you need to take the shuttle (worth 199 per head) or take a cab but goodluck on your fare. haha! So we had kuya henry to pick us from the hotel then to the airport.

    After two hours, No flight fof Manila. Gaaaawd, Then I checked in and at the pre-departure area, my friends were still there to think that their flight were scheduled 6am, while mine is at 10am. After hours of waiting taaaadaaaa CANCELLED FLIGHT again for the second time! Geeesh what are we going to do?? We need to rebook our flight right away. We need to make a decision by that time. If we will rebook our flight the following day at Cagayan, we are not sure if we can pursue the flight, the weather is still not good, so my friend deciced to booked at Davao and take the 9 hour trip (waaaaah!). My friend called kuya Henry and asked is he could drive us to Davao, without any hesitation he said yes to us and pick us at the airport right away.

    We left the airport around 1 in the afternoon, if you could just experienced our trip to Davao! One word: EXTREME! Landslide site, sharp curves, edgy streets, rocky road, mountain sides, zigzag roads, check points, one way streets, no light, heavy fog and many more. Naubos ang tulog namin! hahaha! after a nine hour trip we made it to DAVAO! haha at 11pm. Kuya Henry will immediately go back to Cagayan De Oro, no sleep or even a minute of rest. Geeesh! way to go kuya! I salute you! :)

    Thank you for taking good care of us during our 9 hour trip! the best driver especially during our trip facing all those sharp curves and rocky road.

    So if you need a tour package if you're somewhere in Cagayan, Feel free to contact him.

    and many more....

    Kuya henry's van is a White Grandia, very relaxing and got free space for everybody, (we are 8 in the group) Thanks to kuya's car charger, Lahat nakapagcharge ng phone. :)

    Kuya is very kind kahit hindi pala salita masyado but you can see he is sincere with his job, Kayo kaya mag drive ng 9 hours tas babalik ulit siya ng Cagayan, but he left us with his sweetest smile sabay sabing " Ingat po kayo" Oha?? hahaha :)

    Motorela around CDO

    by maitravels Updated Jan 22, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    for first timers you can hire taxi cabs in getting to your destinations faster and easier since motorela can only go within certain areas. Thailand has "TukTuks", CDO has "motorela". a motorcycle converted into a mini jeepney, the front seat can accomodate 2 persons and the back can have 4 to 6 persons.....

    Taxis from the airport

    by DarleneCMF Written Dec 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can get a taxi from CdO's Lumbia airport just outside the terminal building. Although there are warnings about flag-down and meter rates, the driver will insist on a fixed amount because 'they have to pay the association everytime they queue up at the airport.'

    We were billed P250 from airport to the Bulua bus terminal, which they say is the 'standard rate.' The driver even said 'wa pa ni Pinaskuhan ma'am?' Which translates to tip since it's Christmas. We said no since the fare was already expensive...

    Philippine Airlines Domestic

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 9, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Philippine Airlines was founded on February 26, 1941, making it Asia's oldest carrier still operating under its current name. The airline was started by a group of businessmen led by Andres Soriano, hailed as one of the Philippines' leading industrialists at the time, who served as the General Manager, and former Senator Ramon Fernandez as Chairman and President. Government investment in September of the same year paved the way for its nationalization. Its main hub is at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in the city of Parañaque with all its passenger flights involving Manila in Centennial Terminal 2.

    Jeepney Ride

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 9, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jeepneys are a popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and are well known for their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating. They have also become a symbol of Philippine culture. Although the original jeepneys were simply refurbished military jeeps (Willys), modern jeepneys are now produced by independently owned workshops and factories within the Philippines.There is a Jeepney ethic that tourists take a little time to fully grasp: if it is possible to get another person into the back of the Jeepney, the passengers are obligated to squeeze together a little tighter and try and create a place for someone who wants on.

    Fares start at 9.00 Pesos for the first 4 kilometers and 1.50 pesos every kilometer thereafter.

    available everywhere!

    also available for 1 day rent at 3,500 pesos a day.

    Lumbia International Airport

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 9, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lumbia International Airport is the Gateway to Cagayan De Oro City, the Airport ias located in Barangay Lumbia in Cagayan de Oro City. It is a 15 minute drive from downtown Cagayan De Oro. the Airport is really old and small, like a municipal airport and the facilities are wanting since it also doubles as a military airbase. The buildings are small and overcrowded, the baggage carousel (only one) is small and be prepared for a scramble to get near it. Taxis are available and are reasonably priced once you haggle for the price!

    Habal Habal (7 seater tricycle)

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 9, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also Known as Skylab!

    Necessity is the Mother of inventions!, due to the poor road conditions in the Visayas and Mindanao and that rides to remote areas are expensive and can easily destroy the chassis of cars and jeeps, the enterprising people here built the sky lab aka "habal habal" a 5 to 7 seater tricyle that is economical and affordable (a short ride costs 15 pesos) in the 1970's and since then has became the mode of transport to remote areas.
