For a departure from Los Angeles International Airport, Philippine Airlines offers a nonstop flight with a destination of Manila Ninoy Aquino International.

You can also fly nonstop on Philippine Airlines from San Francisco International Airport with arrival at Mactan-Cebu International Airport.

When traveling on trips to the Philippines from the USA there are quite a few airport options at each location that you can use simply because each country is so large and has a large population looking to travel. Some of the largest and busiest airports in the USA are common departure points to make trips to the Philippines and they include John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). One of the most common airports that serves as a destination for flights to the Philippines from the USA is Manila Ninoy Aquino (MNL). In addition to this airport, another popular airport option is Mactan-Cebu International (CEB) that may serve you better depending on your final destination in the Philippines.

One of the most common ways to get between the different towns and all the islands of the Philippines is in shuttle vans. These vans have set prices between destinations, and they run on a regular schedule. It is also common for visitors to the Philippines to rent a moped to get around, and this is especially true on the islands of Palawan, Cebu, Coron, Siquior, and Siargao. This is a relatively inexpensive way to get around the islands, plus you get to set your own itinerary. If you plan on staying in larger cities in the Philippines, there are rideshare services available that you can easily access during your stay. If you plan on going from island to island your two choices are to do it by airplane or via boat. You can fly from the city of Manila to places like Coron, Siargao, and Cebu quite easily and inexpensively. While boat travel will not be as quick between the islands as airplanes will there are plenty of ferries that travel quickly, and this is a great way to see the beauty of the islands in this area.

If you are a United States citizen and planning on making a trip to the Philippines, you will need a valid United States passport to make the trip. The passport need only be valid at the time of your entry into the Philippines. The passport must have sufficient space for an entry visa stamp. In addition to a valid passport, tourists will also need a visa to travel to the Philippines. You must obtain your visa before your flight to the Philippines. Citizens of the United States can get visas from any Philippines embassy or consulate in the United States. It is important to note the end date of your visa and not to overstay the length of your visa in the Philippines.
