If you want the bright and sunny, tropical glory of the Philippines, plan your trip between the summer months of March and May.
It will be hot and dry, but that’s what beaches, sunscreen and hats are for!
Want things a little bit cooler? Then November to February are best for you.
Some might say avoid the rainy season from June to October, but a good traveller knows that off-peak season means lower rates in airfares, hotels, resorts — and maybe the beer too. Just be forewarned that during the months between July and September it’s monsoon season which could mean strong winds and heavy rain.
Some parts of the country such as Cebu and Davao, are warm and comfortable in all seasons with an average temperature of 26.6 °C, and can be visited throughout the year.
