To get to Siargao Bleu Resort from Siargao Airport, you have a few transportation options available. Siargao Airport (also known as Sayak Airport) is located on the island of Siargao in the Philippines. Here’s how you can get to Siargao Bleu Resort from the airport:

1. **Hotel Transfer (Preferred Option):**
Many resorts, including Siargao Bleu Resort, offer airport transfer services for their guests. Before your trip, it’s a good idea to check with the resort if they provide this service and if it needs to be pre-arranged. If they do, they might have a representative waiting for you at the airport with your name on a sign. This is usually the most convenient and hassle-free option.

2. **Tricycle or Motorcycle Taxi:**
Tricycles and motorcycle taxis are a common mode of transportation in Siargao. Once you exit the airport terminal, you’ll find tricycles and motorcycle drivers offering rides to various destinations on the island. Negotiate a fare with the driver and inform them that you want to go to Siargao Bleu Resort. While this option is cheaper than a private transfer, it may not be as comfortable, especially if you have a lot of luggage.

3. **Public Transportation:**
You can take a public multicab or jeepney from the airport to the town of General Luna, which is where Siargao Bleu Resort is located. These are shared vehicles, and you might need to wait for them to fill up before they depart. Once in General Luna, you can either walk to the resort (if it’s nearby) or take a tricycle to reach the exact location.

Remember to have the name and address of Siargao Bleu Resort written down or saved on your phone to show to the driver or locals for easier navigation.
