How to Go to Caramoan from Cubao

We're currently aboard the Raymond Bus at the Naga City Bus Terminal! We're​ waiting for it to depart for Caramoan Town Proper.

Here are easy steps on how you can get to Caramoan from Cubao via land transfers:

1. Reserve a ticket at the Cubao BusPort beforehand (~ P650-850 per person). The Cubao BusPort is a new bus terminal across Ali Mall, at the corner of P. Tuazon.
  • Book a 7:30PM trip for you to arrive at the Naga City Bus Terminal by 5AM.
2. Arrive at the Cubao BusPort 30 minutes ahead of your scheduled  trip, and board your bus!
  • Ask the driver or conductor to advise once you're already in the Naga City Bus Terminal.
3. You'll encounter 2 stopovers along the way. The first stopover has the cleaner restrooms, so take advantage of this. :)

4. You'll arrive at the Naga City Bus Terminal shortly after your 2nd stopover (it'll be around 4ish AM by this time). Don't sleep as you might not hear the driver or bus conductor's announcement that you're already at the Naga City Bus Terminal.

5. Upon arrival at the Naga City Bus Terminal, make sure to reserve a bus ticket back to Manila first (if you prefer to go back to Manila via Naga). Then, look for the air-conditioned Raymond Bus bound for Caramoan Town Proper. Tickets to Caramoan cost P220 per person, and buses are scheduled to depart by 6:15AM and 9AM.

6. The travel time from Naga City to Caramoan Town Proper is about 4.5 to 5 hours. Alight at the town proper, or at the hotel/inn/accommodation of your choice. If you are not sure where your accommodations are located, alight at the bus station instead, the last stop. It's beside the market, the St. Michael Archangel Church, and West Peninsula Villas.
  • You may opt to reserve a bus ticket from Caramoan to Manila upon alighting at the Caramoan Bus Station. A ticket costs P875 per pax and the travel time takes about 14 to 15 hours.
  • Our bus left at 2:30PM on a Saturday and we arrived at the Cubao Bus Terminal at 5AM on a Sunday.
A more popular way to reach Caramoan is via a boat ride from Sabang Port. Instead of riding a bus from the Naga City Bus Termial to Caramoan Town Proper, you'll have to:

1. Ride a shuttle or tricycle from the Naga City Bus Terminal to Sabang Port. Travel time is around 1.5 hours.

2. Ride a boat from the Sabang Port to Guijalo Port. Travel time is around 2 hours.

3. Ride a tricycle from Guijalo Port to your hotel/inn in Caramoan Town Proper. Travel time is around 20 to 30 minutes, depending on where you're located.
