First timers. What time the year is the best time to go?
Although April & May are the driest time of the year, I love visiting January-March as the weather is great and it's not too humid.
Google it and see top of page for more info. May is my favorite month.
We just returned from Boracay. Arrived 23rd September and departed 8th October. The first of October being the switch from the low season to the high season. Our weather was pretty good during this time. Yes we got rain (mostly at night while sleeping) and clouds were always nearby. But it didn't ruin our holiday at all. I'd say the weather was actually very good. Yes lots of clouds but we still got lots of sun too. I think the only real downside to travel during this time is that many resorts along white beach have these massive wind breaks in front of them. After a day you get used to them and they don't bother you at all but when we arrived at night we thought wtf! They remained up the whole time and they weren't due to come down till mid Oct so we just missed it. All in all we went on what would probably be considered the shoulder season and I would recommend this time for sure.
Good to know for next time, I guess we were lucky if that is true. We went expecting rain and got it. It just didn't rain during the day very much. That said, I have heard that peak peak season can be uncomfortable too, Lots of tourists and uncomfortably hot.
Just got back on the 8th as well and the weather was great. Some clouds, a bit of a drizzle but mostly sunny. Missed a few sunrises because it was drizzled but the sky cleared up mid morning. Coming in October is a bit of a gamble though.
