Catarman is the capital town of Northern Samar, in Eastern Visayas, Philippines. It is a coastal city at the northern tip of Samar Island. Catarman is relatively quiet, having not been discovered by tourist trail yet.
The airport runway runs through the middle of Catarman, which splits it into two sections, being Catarman or 'town proper' which lies to the east of the runway and Dalakit which is on the west.
 Get in
By Plane There is only one airport in Northern Samar, located in the provincial capital of Catarman. Airphil Express is the only carrier that operates out of the airport, travelling from Manila to Catarman National Airport (IATA: CRM) once a day.
 Get around
Pedicabs & tricycles are pretty much the only way of getting around Catarman. Jeepneys, Vans and Buses service the surrounding municipalities and cities.
Pedicabs will cost around ₱5 for anywhere within each section (See 'Understand' above). But it will cost around ₱10-15 to go from Dalakit to Catarman or vice versa.
Tricycles will cost around ₱10 to go from one section to the other. But if coming from the airport it's best to negotiate a price before.
