Bacoor is a city in Philippines.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]

Bacoor is well served by the common modes of transport, the jeepney and th tricycle, but its car-reliant sprawl from the developments in the 1990s also gave its negative reputation on traffic jams. If you drive, always prepare for rush hour traffic and clogged roads.

By jeepney[edit]

Bacoor is well served by jeepney routes, and they ply all the major roads through town. Fares start at ₱8 for the first 4 kilometers, and ₱2 are added for each additional kilometer. But remember that the city has since restricted loading and unloading of jeepneys to a few designated stops, so you cannot just hail a jeepney just anywhere or ask the driver to drop you outside the designated stop.

You might also take a multicab between SM City Bacoor ang SM City Molino, but remember, space inside the vehicle is small (there is limited head room and leg room) and it can carry just the half a jeepney can carry, so expect the ride to be crowded.

By tricycle[edit]

By car[edit]

Travel by car is far the worst way to get around town. While the malls are best accessed by car, parking rates can be burdensome, and parking space becomes limited during weekend sales. Traffic in Bacoor is nerve-racking, and unless you are used to Filipino driving behavior (or similar behaviors in other countries), it remains best to take the available public transport options when getting around.

Go next[edit]

Go to Taal Lake in Tagaytay and visit the volcano! You can flag down a bus on Aguinaldo highway, next to the SM by the pedestrian overpass. Check the sign in the front window to make sure they're going to Tagaytay. Once in Tagaytay, ask where the jeepney terminal is. Do not take a tricycle or accept an offer for a boat ride. Chances are that both parties will rip you off! Once you're at the jeepney terminal, find the jeepney going to Talisay. Once in Talisay, find your way to the market. From there, walk down the pier and find a sign that lists the prices for the boat rides to the Volcano—standardized, and set by the tourism board. It's ₱1500 for a boat ride. There is a boat operator by the name of Bert Mendoza who will give a safe ride, and if you're lucky, share a fishing story over a glass of Red Horse beer, and some Tilapia and Bagoong (tell him Mike told you about him!). They're really friendly people, as are all the Filipinos in Talisay. Once you get to Taal island, the price is a ₱50 fee per person for entrance to the volcano, ₱450 for a horse ride to the top (you can walk: it'll take about 45 min), and ₱500 for a guide—if you so choose.

Visit Ternate, and check out Puerto Azul beach! You can catch a bus on the highway right next to the SM (Note: not Aguinaldo highway. That's perpendicular).
