The best way to go to Leyte is by air. The main jump-off point is the airport in San Jose, Tacloban City. The airport operates everyday and holds three different airline companies — Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines and AirAsia. The flights are mostly going to either Manila or Cebu. Travel time usually takes about an hour to and from Manila and roughly 45 minutes to and from Cebu.


Correct me if I’m wrong, but as of now, the best seaport in Leyte is the one in Ormoc City. Most of the people coming from other parts of the country especially from Cebu by boat would dock in Ormoc, which is one of the cities in Leyte.


Leyte is actually a big island. While it is possible to go there by car, you will have to cross the sea if you are coming in from other islands in the Philippines.
