Getting to and around Carcar

Roughly 40 kilometers away from Cebu City, Carcar is easily accessible by both public and private modes of transportation.

For solo explorers or backpackers travelling in groups, a 45-minute ride on a non-airconditioned bus from the Cebu South Bus Terminal to the heart of Carcar City will only cost P40.

A short walk from the city rotunda then takes visitors to a little hill where some of the city’s heritage structures stand. This is Carcar’s church complex hosting government offices, the church, convent, and plaza, among others.

At this stage, the best mode of transport is using your two lower limbs as the structures are situated conveniently within one area only.

Walking is still best if you intend to visit the heritage houses downhill.

In Carcar, the most common form of transport is the tricycle which could practically lead tourists to any point within the city’s 15 barangays.

Whether it’s a visit to Fr. Camomot’s resting place in Valladolid or Tupas Memorial Services, which is suitably located along the national highway, or the proposed site of the multibillion peso new Carcar City Center, tricycles could take you almost practically anywhere in Carcar.

Tricycles collect a minimum fare of P8.

Private vans for hire may have higher rates but give you the option of going to areas of some distance away, be it to the Guadalupe Mainit Spring or Can-asujan Dam in the hilly portions of Carcar.
