How to Get to Opol, Misamis Oriental:

Upon arrival in Cagayan de Oro City, you can choose from a wide variety of modes of transportation.

  • TAXI: The most convenient means of transportation is by Taxi from which you can proceed directly to Opol coming from the airport, seaport or bus terminal.
  • JEEPNEY: A cheaper mode of transport is by Jeepney, which you can take from the airport, seaport or bus terminal going to the city proper. Then take another Jeepney ride going to Bulua Integrated Terminal and from there, take a third Jeepney ride going to Opol.
  • VAN: Another transportation option would be to hire a Van/Shuttle from the airport, seaport or bus terminal and go directly to Opol, but this will be a more expensive option.
