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.

Island Hopping Cebu!

My time in the Philippines has to be one of my best vacations ever thanks to Stephanie! She was very accommodating, planned wonderful activities, even if we were unable to go some place cause it was closed or unavailable, she always found something else that was just as enjoyable. She helped make my experience relaxing and fun at the same time! Highly recommend if you want fun filled adventures or a relaxing stay, she will take care of it and make sure you have lasting memories! Thanks Steph for everything! 😄

Island Hopping Cebu!

Steph is a highly recommended trip guide for a number of reasons. She knows the ins and outs of places worth visiting in Cebu and understands the culture of the locals, thus proving that her experience, knowledge and understanding of the locality is quite extensive. Her ability to scour for last minute items that we forgot is a testament to her resourcefulness while the chocolates, camera and spray bottle with vinegar (for unplanned marine encounters with jellyfish and the like) have sufficiently given proof of her reliability - we didn't even ask her to bring these things! Lastly, she is a considerate and caring guide - one who answers inquisitive questions patiently, gives her clients ample opportunity to do their own thing but at the same time is available as soon as she's needed. She was very generous of her time that she gladly accepted our tour request with the shortest notice - on a Christmas holiday too!

So kudos to you Steph, I wouldn't hesitate to book you as our guide again. The tourism industry needs more dedicated individuals like you; I'd definitely would give the maximum number of stars to your rating for a job well done.
