Climate & Weather in Philippines


The Philippines is a tropical island. It has only two seasons: the wet and dry season. Of course, with the thousands of islands to discover, such as Cebu and Palawan, a summery feel is a requirement for the best trip to this gem in the Pacific. The dry season starts in late November and ends in May. The rainy seasons starts in June and lasts till October. September and October are often the typhoon season in the Philippines.

Although foreign visitors think that it is always summer in the Philippines, the Filipinos think and feel summer in April and May—the hottest months in the Philippines. The sky is at its bluest and the water at its clearest during this time of the year. During these months Tours on Cebu are amazing and Island Hoping Tours are spectacular. If you are visiting Philippines in other months, private city tours and local home-cooked dinners are some great ways to explore the beauty and local lifestyle of this country.

Seasons & temperatures in the Philippines

The hottest season in the Philippines falls in April and May, which is the best time to go to the beach or trek highlands. Locals and foreigners alike head to northern Luzon for its cool temperature. Baguio City, the summer and flower capital in the Philippines, is locked in the mesmerizing Benguet ranges. During summer, its temperature reaches 38°C and drops until 9°C degrees from November to February. For a trip with cooler temperature, it is best to explore the hidden secrets in northern Luzon or trek major mountains like Mt. Apo, Mt. Kanlaon, and Mt. Pulag to name a few. In major cities like Manila and Cebu, the temperature can be very warm, making you feel it is summer all year round.

Cebu City Tour by Car

Stephanie was a wonderful tour guide. We were looking for a local experience and she was able to deliver while also giving us a great deal of information/ advice along the way. Booking with her was easy and she was so helpful and patient. We told her all of the things we wanted to see and she was able to make arrangements to suit our needs while also adding in a couple places she thought we would like. When we come back to Cebu we will definitely book with her again 🙂

2-Day Ultimate Extreme Adventure Tour

We only had two days in Cebu and Jessie organised this amazing 2 day private tour. He's an excellent guide, picked us up at the airport with a really nice luxurious car. He's knowledgeable, calm, very friendly, and a very safe driver. You can't go wrong with these guys, they're real professionals.

2-Day Ultimate Extreme Adventure Tour

I have SO much to share. Firstly, let me say that this was my first time using WithLocals and I will DEFINITELY use it again. It was just my girlfriend and I would be lying if I said that people didn’t think we were crazy setting this tour up with a stranger.
We could not imagine this trip without Nilo. Being guided by someone whom we would now call a friend made a huge difference in our experience. We did SO much in 2 days and he knew all of the best places. He introduced us to the culture, history, food and all of the best must-see activities. He went out of his way to take care of us and show us the best time. We are going to genuinely miss him so much.
