The Marcos highway serves as the main road for transport around the area making it a highly accessible destination. As some of the more scenic spots are accessed at lengthy distances through rough road, the most efficient way to get around is through a four wheel drive vehicle. Trying out the Jeepneys and the local tricycles are also experiences on their own, but may not be ideal for fast, efficient transport.
