    Golf Carts to and From Around the Island

    by machomikemd Updated Mar 13, 2015

    Being A 5 star Luxury Island Destination, You would be spoiled for choices in Huma Island so that If you don't want to walk around the different areas of the Islands, like say from your water villa to the beach or to the Spa or to some of the Restaurants and vice versa, you don't need to walk (hey it's a small Island and you can walk around it easily). you just call a golf cart from the comfort of your room or via any of the areas around the area (as they have telephones) and viola, your golf cart will fetch you to your destination. Talk about pampering!

    Off course this privilege is included in the hefty $ 421 dollar per person daily package for the resort!

    Huma Island Jetty

    by machomikemd Written Mar 13, 2015

    Huma Island has a Concrete Boat Jetty located about a 50 meter walk from the island, along the deeper part as to avoid the shallow corals. The Jetty can accomodate 3 native large Bancas all at once to unload or embark passengers. the view is spectacular at the Boat Jetty as you would see the wonderful corals lying along the island. Huma Island is actually Dicilingan Island, off the coast of Busuanga. The Boat Jetty is open from 5:30 am to 7:00 pm everyday.

    Only Guests of the Island are allowed to Go Into The island.

    Native Banca for Island Hopping

    by machomikemd Written Mar 12, 2015

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Huma Island maybe a luxe destination, however, the mode of tranferring to the Island from the Busuanga Mainland is done via the native philippine banca, which is made of sturdy wood and with bamboo poles as balancing beams at the sides and a single diesel engine at the back, although the bancas of huma island have a more presentable forn that the ordinary bancas. they also use theyse Native Bancas for the various Island Hopping Tours around Busuanga, Coron, and Culion Islands and around the other Calamianes Island Chain.

    Transport to and from Huma Island via the Banca is included in the package, you only pay extra if you charter them for the half day or whole day island hopping tours.

    Huma Island Private Vans

    by machomikemd Written Mar 12, 2015

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being the Only Luxury Resort in Busuanga (there are also Luxury Resorts in Coron Town and the islands around it but not as expensive and glamourous as Huma Island) that rivals the other luxury resorts in the Philippines like Amanpulo, Pangulasian (both also in Palawan Province) and Balesin Island (in Quezon Province in the Luzon Area). Huma Island has it's own fleet of 15 seater Private Vans that can take you to and from the airport to the two Boat Jetty to Huma Island of which, the price is included in the package.

    You can also charter the Huma Private Vans to drive you to Coron for a Day Island Hopping tour (which we did) for an extra 5,000 pesos for the one day van rental (excluding the island hopping package).

    Salvacion Boat Jetty

    by machomikemd Written Mar 12, 2015

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Huma Island has two boat Jettys serving guests going to and from the Island and the other Boat Jetty is the Salvacion Boat Jetty, which is way north of the Sagrada Boat Jetty and is about a 45 minute boat ride to and from the Island and this Jetty is just the usual concrete pier and stairs bare bones type but with no structures in the Jetty Itself as it is only used in the mornings when guests have early flights to the airport to Manila or Cebu City (guests leave either 5;30 or 6:00 am) as the Sagrada Boat Jetty still has low tide up to 7:00 am and is not accessible to the boats. From the pier, the private vans of the resort ferry the guests to the airport.

    ARRIVING AT BUSUANGA AIRPORT

    by davidjo Written Jun 10, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you arrive at the airport you will pass by many tourist agency counters as you leave the arrival hall. Shuttle vans are waiting in the car park to take you to different parts of the island for a fixed fare. Make sure that you get on a regular passenger shuttle that takes many people and not a private charter which will cost you too much. If you want to go to some of the more remote places you may have no option but to charter your own vehicle as there is no other transport at the airport.

    PHILIPPINE AIRLINES and CEBU PACIFIC to BUSUANGA

    by davidjo Written Jun 9, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The plane that flies to Busuanga from Manila is a DHC-8-400 which is a De Havilland Canada and has propellers which seemed to give us a bumpy landing. PAL has 2 flights a day form Manila leaving at 8.30 am and 14.40 pm.
    Cebu Pacific also has 3 flights and it seems to also use the DHC plane too, although it seemed to be a slightly different model
    Cebu Pacific fly from manila at 10.40, 13.20 and 16.50 but it may be best to check with the airlines as time schedules apt to change from time to time.

    CORON TO BUSUANGA AIRPORT

    by davidjo Written Jun 9, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting to Busuanga Airport is easy, just inform your hotel/GH when your flight leaves and they will order the shuttle van to pick you up at the appropriate time for 150 pesos per person. Make sure you don't charter a van as this will cost you a lot more. In Coron town i did not see a shuttle terminal where one can just turn up and find a shuttle van.

    BUSUNGA AIRPORT TO CORON TOWN

    by davidjo Updated Jun 9, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shuttle vans will be waiting to transfer you to Coron as soon as your plane touches down, but make sure you get on the normal passenger van (150 pesos) and don't charter one which will cost you a lot more. The ride into town will take 30 minutes as it winds its way through the valley with hills on each side, often being delayed by cattle on the road. The driver will drop you off anywhere in town for no extra charge. Although the shuttle van can accommodate up to 15 people it will probably leave after the last passenger leaves the terminal. Our van only had 6 passengers.

    No frills airline

    by iclee Written Sep 19, 2010

    I booked online and flew to Busuanga using Air Phil Express. Major credit cards accepted. Not sure though if they accept credit cards issued outside of the Philippines.

    Departures and Arrivals serviced thru Terminal 3 infront of Marriott Hotel and ResortWorld Casino.

    No food on board. Not even ones for sale. It is such a short flight though.

    Serviced by Bombadier Q400 so expect smaller cabin space. Clean and new aircraft.

    Btw, PAL (PR) is managing Airphil Express.

    Busuanga, Coron or Puerto Princesa

    by iclee Written Sep 13, 2010

    A lot of people who travel to see the islands of Palawan make the mistake of booking Puerto Princesa (PPS) airport even if they are primarily going to El Nido, Busuanga (USU) or Coron.

    If you have no business going to Puerto Princesa, I suggest you fly direct to Busuanga. There are carriers servicing the MNL-USU route.

    Budget trip to Coron

    by zoe_girl18 Updated Apr 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We decided to take the Supperferry going to Coron/Busuanga to cut on expenses. The ship leaves Manila every friday at 3:45pm and arrives at coron at 5am. It departs from Coron every Sunday at 10:45pm and arrives at Manila 12nn.

    Going to Coron, we were able to book a cabin room w/c can accomodate four persons. The room has its own TV and bathroom. The room is small but comfy. But for those who are claustrophobic, well.. there might be a little discomfort. The fare per person w/meal for the cabin is P2,223.20 one way.

    Coming home we were booked on the tourist area.. This iarea is composed of several divided spaces which you share with 6-10 people depending on where you are assigned. The bathroom is common, meaning you share it with everyone. The area is okay but not really that clean. Or maybe i was just unlucky to get assigned to the dirty bunk. The fare per person w/meal is P1,806.00.

    Just a little tip.. the tourist area is okay.. Just make sure you lock your bags to be on the safe side.. Because you have to leave your area to dine. Or maybe just take turns with your companions. It is better to book w/o meals because they sell food and you can better choose what you want to eat. Since we booked w/ food, we had no choice but to eat what was served.

    One hour plane ride via Seair

    by arni_ph075 Written Nov 17, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seair is one of the most reputable airline in the country with good safety track record. Its the smallest plane Ive ever tried riding and a whole deal fun, as it flies low, you can have a great view of Palawan islands.. Amazing.

    It flies daily to Busuanga, 2 flights daily, (airport nearest to Coron, the commercial district of Busuanga). The airport is located in Yulo King Ranch, in the center of a cattle farm.

    The aircraft model being used on the Busuanga route is LET410.

    First flight to Busuanga is at 0710, and last flight going back to Manila is at 1715.

    Seair got a free shuttle from the airport to Coron town. If you dont have arranged transpo, better catch the shuttle, else you need to wait for the next flight arrival, as transportation is very limited on this airport, as its in the middle of a huge cattle farm.
