Travel Guide

How to get to Cagayan De Oro:

Airlines have regular flights from Manila, Cebu, Iloilo, Zamboanga, and Davao to Laguindingan Airport, which is the main airport of Northern Mindanao. You may contact airline companies to check the latest available information about flight schedules and rates. We recommend that you get a plane ticket early to avoid booking cancellation and penalty.

How to get to the venue:

Upon arrival to Laguindingan airport, participants can either arrange for a private transportation service to Cagayan De Oro or take the airport shuttles or bus. Shuttles and buses are located at the terminal outside the airport’s arrival area. Most transportation services from the airport to CDO will drop you off straight to Limketkai Luxe Hotel, the official event venue for the 13th PNHRS Week celebration which is located at Lapasan, Cagayan De Oro City. To be sure, we still recommend you to ask the personnel in charge of the transportation. Prices also vary depending on the transportation company.

Travel time from Laguindingan Airport to Limketkai Luxe Hotel ranges from 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on the preferred route and traffic situation in the area.
