  2. Alternatively, from Bacolod Airport, you can get to BREDCO (near SM) via van or taxi and ride on any of the 3 RoRo, but if you want faster but more expensive means, take Fast Crafts to Iloilo City.

Mango Pizza in Jordan Guimaras Pitstop

Guimaras Island is a stunning place to enjoy creation. Some of the things that I love about Guimaras are going there for Manggahan Festival, buying cheap and delicious mangoes, eating mango pizza, mesmerized by Andana Resort or the laid back rest in Alubihod beach and so much more. 

Even though Iloilo is the one enjoying mostly on the access to Guimaras, I believe Bacolod and Negros must not be left behind. With the upcoming bridge that will link our three islands, these travel options may serve as well.

Take a ~30 minutes ride to Pulupundan. You won’t reach Pulupandan proper. Just go down at Ferry Terminal at the left side upon entering Crossing Pulupandan.
