Terminal 1 - Taxi’s, Jeepneys and Buses
There are two levels on the arrival deck. The first and immediate exit level is where you will find Taxi service. If you need a Taxi the Taxi stand is on the left, tell them where you need to go, ask the price, write down the number of the taxi (in case you forget something).

Average cab ride cost about to local hotels is about 60.00 pesos (2.50 US). I suggest using the yellow cab unless you have been here before. Do not take a ride from anyone else!! People are very helpful if asked..

Terminal 1 - Resort Transportation
For resort transportation exit the primary building, following the signs to the lower arrival level for pick up. Please look at the pillars in the arrival area and queue up in the “XYZ” area which is on the RIGHT end of guest arrival/pickup staging area “S”) and look across the parking area. DO NOT WALK AROUND…Our driver has a sign and will be looking for you.  Security is very strict about people coming into the arrival area so you will need to look for the sign that says “Crystal Blue” Once you have spotted the driver make your way over, they will come as far as they can and help you.
