|the big jeepney ride from Maragusan|
Best way is from Davao City and get the ride either from Ecoland or Gaisano Mall Terminal.
Several buses service the route such as Mallen, Davao Metro Shuttle and Bachelor Express.
Travel time is 3 - 3.5 hours using the bus. The fare in the aircon bus is P250. Using a van, travel time is only 2.5 - 3 hours.
From Mati's bus terminal, hire a habal-habal ride (single motorcycle) towards the beach and the rent is around P150 (round trip).
But it was different on my part, since I came from Maragusan, Compostela Valley, I had to ride the jeepney from Maragusan to Mati. Fare is P120.00. Hiring a habal-habal to Mati is P500-P700. Travel time is 2.5 to 3 hours or 66 kilometers of rough road. There are only 3 scheduled trips for a day (8:00 am, 9:00 am and 11:30 am). Make sure you are on the terminal at least 40 minutes before the departure.
Along the way, I was entertained by the rough roads of Compostela Valley. Good thing I was seated in front of the jeepney ride because the ride was a bit bumpy and rough!
