Travel Guide : Tibiao Antique - How To Get There, Where To Stay, Things To do & Overnight Expenses

Looking for some fun and adventure over the weekend, you must try to dip in a warm big “KAWA” do relax and enjoy the overlooking view. Tibiao Antique is easily accessible by land from any point in Panay, since it is just a few hours away from travel gateways such as Iloilo, Kalibo and Boracay.

Kawa Hot Bath

Enjoy a unique experience in Tibiao by bathing in a hot Kawa (large frying pan), just like a Jacuzzi. This unique kawa hot bath will surely relieve the stresses in your body for only 200.00 per 30 minutes.

I would suggest that spend at least an overnight stay and do things that locals doing, you will know the experience of life that far from the crowded and noisy city. They will pass go through the wide river for the sake of buying some food to eat and their daily needs.
How To Get There


If you are Iloilo City go to Molo Terminal and look for bus or van bound to Culasi, Antique, make sure to tell the driver/conductor before you sit down, that you will drop off at Barangay Importante at Tibiao from there you can see the welcome arch. There is a lot of motorbike offer a trip to kayak inn for 70pesos/ person. Before you headed to kayak inn there is a tourism office on the way and you need to pay the environmental fee of 50pesos.

If you coming from Kalibo look a Ceres Bus bound to Iloilo via San Jose Antique, drop off at Brgy. Importante, Tibiao Antique

Where To Stay

We stay at Kayak Inn for overnight, there are 3 cottages available, make sure to call ate Sheila for reservation at +639215701947 prior to arrival.
