PUBLIC TRANSPORT CHOICES TO GREEN MANGO INN
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Various suggestions on how to reach Green Mango Inn... by the way, if you have any questions, or if you are lost or you want Green Mango Inn's young owner to talk to you,
***Note---suggest you get FREE Metro Manila and Philippine maps at counters in airport just before you get out of airports...

here are my directions to reach Green Mango Inn.....

BY TAXI... taxis can bring you all the way to Green Mango Inn ... (take metered taxis, not the more expensive coupon taxis...ask airport staff how you can go to DEPARTURE area where there are usually many ordinary metered taxis from passengers going to airport)...From the airports, please tell taxi driver to bring you to SUCAT ROAD and tell him to enter LOPEZ AVENUE...in Sucat Road, watch out out for the fourth (4th) 7-11 store (nearby is a BANCO FILIPINO branch) to turn Right there into LOPEZ AVENUE, then Lopez Avenue connects immediately to El Grande Avenue, then when you see Mercury Drugstore on the left, and Wow salon on the Right side & a traffic light in front---please turn right into Aguirre Avenue... we are just a few meters down the road on the left side, we are exactly 8 houses away from BPI Family Savings Bank.

Be sure that taxi driver uses his taxi meter, because we are just so near the airports, especially if no rush-hour traffic jams.

***Reminder---PLEASE NOTE, turn right on Sucat Road only when you see a building with 7-11 store (this is the 4th or fourth 7-11 store in Sucat Road & with BANCO FILIPINO BANK across street). This one is building 7-11, turn Right here from Sucat Road and enter LOPEZ AVENUE...Thanks!

***NOTE ON TAXIS FROM AIRPORT: Coupon (pre-paid) taxis are available at the airports to bring you to our inn or any other place. Rates are fixed and dependent on the destination and generally are more expensive compared to what you would pay in an ordinary metered taxi. Coupon taxi counters usually are found immediately after exiting customs in our airports. Expect to pay somewhere between US$10 to 15 for destinations within Metro Manila. The usual metered taxis are generally not allowed at the Arrival Terminal of airports so you would either need to catch an ordinary metered taxi un-loading passengers at the Departure Area of the airport or outside the airport complex. This may be easier said than done however, particularly when lugging around kilos upon kilos of baggage. But if you don't have lots of luggage, it's best to get ordinary metered taxis for lower fare.

IF YOU CARRY ONLY BACKPACKS & DO NOT HAVE BIG LUGGAGE, TRY PHILIPPINE JEEPNEYS FOR FUN! BY 'JEEPNEY' PUBLIC TRANSPORT, outside the airport, look for jeepneys going the SUCAT direction, then tell jeepney driver you will go SUCAT ROAD (also called Dr. Santos Avenue) and tell jeepney driver you want to stop at LOPEZ AVENUE and you need pay only P10 to P12 pesos each person, go down when you see the 4th (fourth) 7-11 store (nearby across street is Banco Filipino bank), walk towards LOPEZ AVENUE a few steps to look for a tricycle near Best Choice mini-mart which will cost you fare of only P7 pesos per person (if you don't want to share tricycle with other passengers and want to leave immediately by yourself, just pay tricycle driver P17 pesos), then tell tricycle driver to bring you to 365 Aguirre Avenue of BF Homes by passing El Grande Avenue, tell tricycle driver that he should turn right when El Grande Avenue already meets intersection with Aguire Avenue...8 houses from BPI Family Bank down the road of Aguirre Avenue on the left side is Green Mango Inn.

IF COMING FROM CLARK AIRPORT OUTSIDE METRO MANILA...from Clark airport, please ride Philtranco bus going to PASAY CITY bus station of Philtranco, then from there take an ordinary taxi and tell taxi driver to use taxi meter and that you are going to 'BF Homes in SUCAT, PARAAQUE CITY'... (by the way, both Pasay City & Paranaque City are inside Metro Manila...) Paraaque is pronounced as 'pa-ra-nya-ke'...tell taxi driver to pass 'SUCAT ROAD' and look for the 4th (fourth) store of 7-11 (also near Banco Filipino Bank) then turn right into LOPEZ AVENUE, then in few minutes it connects to BF HOMES and EL GRANDE AVENUE...

in El Grande Avenue, Please look for traffic light in the corner and also MERCURY DRUGSTORE on left side, ask taxi to TURN RIGHT here into AGUIRRE AVENUE... the Green Mango Inn is on the LEFT SIDE of Aguirre Avenue...

***Warmest welcome, we are 24-hours everyday!

    The staff wasn't even aware we had booked through hostel world. They then gave a filthy room with no toilet paper and dirty sheets with red stains. On the positive they did help us get a taxi. As for the location, it's not really close to anything to .
