If you decide to commute going to San Antonio, you will have to take a tricycle going to Pundakit. We brought our own car going to Pundakit, San Antonio, but for the sake of commuters, I asked about commuting around. I learned that tricycle are everywhere almost 24 hours a day. In fact, before you find them, the tricycle drivers will likely call your attention from every direction and ask you to take their trikes for the ride. I suggest you hail the first one who called you, or the nearest one. Just mention the name of the resort you made reservations at Pundakit. Tricycle fare is P60 for every 2 passengers and an extra P30 for an extra head. Travel time is more or less 10 minutes.
Take the bus- Victory Liner (Caloocan) bound for Iba or Sta. Cruz Zambales. Get off at the town proper of San Antonio then take a tricycle to Pundaquit. From Pundaquit, take the boat going to Anawangin.

Upon reaching Pundaquit, ask for a boatman to bring you to Anawangin, you wouldn't have a hard time looking for one as there are a lot of them along the shoreline. A small boat can have a maximum of 5 persons including the boatman, and the standard rate is P200 per head, or P800 per boat. a bigger boat that can accommodate 15 persons can also be requested for P2,400.00. Both rates are two-way already, just clear to the boatman the time that he needs to go back and pick you up.
After getting your provisions, ask a tricycle driver to bring you to Pundaquit, a barangay in san antonio famous for its beaches and the jump point to Anawangin. The 20 minute ride will cost you P25 per head, a tricycle can accommodate maximum of three passengers.
Go to Victory Liner Bus terminal either in Pasay or Caloocan, and get an Iba, Zambales bound bus, the earlier the better. We took the 5 am bus and we reached San Antonio a little pass 11 am. Just asked the bus conductor to drop you off in San Antonio Public Market because you can buy your food provisions in the market and the tricycle terminal is also near there.
