I would check out the BPI near the PTT station. Look into setting up an account with online access and setting up foreign wire transfer paperwork in advance. The staff have been pretty accommodating in other matters for me. They also have been giving me whatever the live FOREX rate is at the moment of conversion ($ to PHP). It would also be helpful if they have an email that you can maintain contact and set up transactions as needed. In the past I have experienced wire transfers taking almost a week to get to the Phil from the USA. I would expect a similar timeline going to the US.
