Philippines: Climate & Weather

The tropical climate of the Philippines provides heat and humidity all the year round. However, there are different areas where the dry season and wet season alternate although the characteristics are essentially the same: From January to June, dryness prevails, and from July to December is the rainy season, with slight variations depending on the area.

Between May and November, the monsoon season often leads to the passage of typhoons. The coolest temperatures generally occur in January and the highest temperatures in May, however there is an average of around 25°C throughout the year.

The best time for travelling is from January to May, when you will avoid the typhoons, with a preference for March and April when it is easier to move from one island to another with good conditions.
