FROM BATANGAS - SEA AND LAND TRAVEL


By Sea, the island of Occidental Mindoro can be reached from Batangas thru either Abra de Ilog which is part of the island or thru Calapan, a city of its sister province, Oriental Mindoro. Travel from Batangas takes about two and a half hours to three hours on a Ro-Ro cruise, a 5-hour land travel from Calapan to San Jose, or a 3-5 hour travel from Abra de Ilog to San Jose.

Star, RORO Transport, JAM Liners have a direct bus route from Cubao (in Quezon City), Sampaloc (in Manila) and Alabang (in Muntinlupa City) to San Jose that includes a roll-on/roll-off ferry that operates between Abra de Ilog and Batangas City (a three-hour trip across the Verde Island Passage).

San Jose is linked to all towns of Occidental Mindoro via a mostly-dusty provincial highway that runs from north to south. Roads in and around San Jose are well-paved on mostly flat terrain. Local bus and jeepney operators ply the route from the northernmost town of Abra de Ilog all the way south to San Jose. From the San Jose Bus Terminal, travelers can ride a jeepney to Magsaysay, the last town of the province of Occidental Mindoro, and further across the mountains to Bulalacao, Oriental Mindoro via the newly constructed Roxas-Bulalacao-San Jose Road.
