Taking the van (UV Express) from Donsol to Legazpi is a convenient option. Although they’re not very spacious, vans get you to Legazpi faster than the jeepney.

Head to Donsol Centralized Shuttle Station to catch a van heading to Legazpi City. It’s best to travel in the morning, as vans don’t run that frequently. The van costs 85 PHP (€1,40) per person and stops at Legazpi Grand Central Terminal in the city center. From there, you can take a tricycle to travel within the city.

Keep in mind that vans leave as soon as they are full. They don’t wait for anyone or depart at designated schedules.

Jeepneys going from Donsol to Legazpi are more frequent than the vans, but they take a little longer to reach Donsol. Also, most make a stopover in the town of Pilar.

An advantage of taking the jeepney is that its open-air design offers a good view of the scenery, although it can become a disadvantage if there’s a lot of pollution along the route.

Jeepneys cost 65 PHP (€1,10) per person, and the trip takes roughly 2 hours, depending on the driver as well as the traffic when entering Legazpi City. Jeepneys usually park at the Legazpi Grand Central Terminal.

Taking the jeepney definitely provides an ‘only in the Philippines’ travel experience.
