Cebu Pacific Air has frequent and almost hourly flights to Davao City. You may book through http://bit.ly/DiscoverMNLxCEB #CEBTravels. From there, you may ask your hotel for a shuttle or you may use Grab to pick you up and bring you to where you’ll be staying. We recommend The Ritz Hotel at Garden Oases which is easily accessible at the heart of the city.
