If you’ve ever wanted to visit the Philippines, flying into Kalibo International Airport in Boracay can be a great starting point. Unlike other areas of the Philippines, Kalibo’s main language is Aklanon rather than Tagalog or English. Kalibo is a vibrant center of aboriginal culture and Asian modernity in the context of traditionally Philippine suburbs.
Kalibo International Airport is a little over a mile away from the main part of Kalibo, and about 40 miles from the next major urban agglomeration, Caticlan port.

What To Expect When Arriving At Kalibo International Airport?
Kalibo International Airport is a small airport and doesn’t have too many amenities, but it does have some basic shops and restaurants as well as a currency exchange. You shouldn’t have to wait too long in the taxi line before a car is ready to take you to downtown, although many people who have wheeled luggage just walk and enjoy the balmy air.
What To See And Do In Kalibo
Kalibo isn’t a very popular tourist destination, but it does have a lot of natural beauty and a few landmarks which may interest you. In terms of urban hot spots, check out XIX Martyr’s Street, which brings the technicolor Philippine aesthetic to a lively market during the day and a vibrant nightlife complete with street buskers as soon as the sun goes down. Expect to pay very little to get armfuls of coconuts or products made of buri leaves.
Outside downtown Kalibo, there’s an entire province lush with tropical pleasures and monuments. In particular, there is a Freedom Shrine commemorating the United States’ liberation of the Philippines from Japanese occupation.
There are many beautiful parks in and around Kalibo, including the Bakhawan Eco-Park, which is a mangrove swamp style botanical garden unlike any other we’ve heard of here at Skyscanner. Complete with the characteristically murky waters and reaching tendrils of mangroves, the Eco-Park is considered a conservation zone, but you’re allowed to camp there if you’re interested in exploring the interior of the 500+ acres of land.
