More conveniently, you can take a tricycle 50 PHP ($0.90) which is the main mode of transport to and from the city center. Alternatively, you can also book a shuttle bus 80 PHP ($1.50). This can be more convenient if you have a lot of luggage.

There are private and shared vans as well as taxis near the airport.

Many of them provide transfers to other towns such as Sabang, El Vicente and El Nido, but you can also find some going to the city center.
