This is where Carles is located
CARLES , one of the towns of the province of Iloilo, Philippines, is located at the heart of the Philippine archipelago. It is situated at the Northeastern tip of Panay Island.
It lies 141 kilometers North of the City of Iloilo or about 293 statute miles south of Manila. Carles is composed of 33 barangays , and 15 of which are found in the mainland and 18 in the islands and islets.
Some people laughed at the name "CARLES" (which by its sound literally mean "no car" because truly there was a scarcity of land transportation before. But now, passenger jeepneys, buses, vans and private cars transport regularly passengers to and from Carles to any location in Panay Island.
By land transport , Carles can be reached within 3 hours from the Provincial Capital , which in turn is about 45 minutes by direct flight from Manila or 18 hours by the finest inter-island vessels now plying the route from National Capital.
