  • Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ)

    From Iloilo City, you can take a jeep directly to San Joaquin. We went there from Miagao. The jeepney fare was only P15/pax. We told the jeepney driver to drop us off at the nearest corner to the church. Guess what? A kind lady asked the driver to bring us directly to the church so we didn’t have to walk from the highway.

San Joaquin Tourist Traps

  • cyndymc's Profile Photo

    by cyndymc Updated Mar 8, 2011

    We were told by the lady cleaner of the church that there would no longer be jeeps bound for Iloilo City. Since it was already past 3PM, jeeps weren’t plying the San Joaquin-Iloilo City route anymore. We didn't know that beforehand! We had no choice but to wait (for a long time!) at the highway for a bus bound for Iloilo City. When a bus finally came, we asked if they were bound for Iloilo City. The conductor said YES. We boarded the bus; paid P44/pax fare. I was about to take a nap when I thought of asking my seatmate where exactly is the last point of the bus trip. I was surprised when he told me that the bus wasn't going to the City Proper; last point was up to the Molo bus terminal only. I was aghast, but I couldn't totally blame the conductor. You see, Molo is still part of Iloilo City and I didn't specify Iloilo City Proper ;(

    Unique Suggestions: We had no choice but go with the bus ;(

    Fun Alternatives: From Molo bus terminal, we asked around how we could go to Iloilo City. We were pointed to a row of jeepneys. As we were about to get inside, my seatmate called me and said we were riding the wrong jeep, as it was going to another district of iloilo City. He let us join him in another jeepney that would take us to Iloilo City Proper. Fare was P10/pax.
