NEWS: Test flights of Cessna Grand Caravan land planes have recently been conducted in Central Aurora, as well as ocular inspections for a possible seaplane dock in the Baler fishport area. This proposal is currently being discussed with the local government through the charter airline company AIR JUAN. There are no commercial flights to Aurora currently, although charter airline businesses may be available to accommodate private flights since the province has an existing fully functional airport. Please contact these charter businesses to know more about these possibilities.

You can get to Baler from Manila heading towards Cabanatuan via SCTEX
( Entry is at the Lapaz, Tarlac toll gate ). Once you reach Cabanatuan, take the Nueva Ecija -Aurora highway. You will pass through the towns of Talavera, Rizal , Pantabangan until your reach the Aurora Province Archway which marks the border of Aurora and Nueva Ecija. From that point you will pass through Maria Aurora, San Luis, and then finally Baler. We advise that experienced drivers take charge of the driving. It would take you about 4-5 hours from Manila to Baler. Drive safely!
Note: Some websites or smart phone/ tablet map apps might mention another route to Baler which is the Baler Bongabon road. It is an old passage with majority of the roads currently undergoing completion for use very soon. Due to this ongoing construction by the DPWH we do not recommend this route as of yet until further notice. The Pantabangan route is the only option we would suggest for you to take as it has paved concrete roads.
