The ultimate tropical paradise, the Philippines is hot with gentle winds and abundant rainfall.

There are two principle seasons: wet and dry. The wet season is from June to November, at which time average rainfall is 260cm. Typhoons often hit the country at this time, often causing flooding. Such sudden storms can make inter-island transport by boat hazardous.

Most tourists visit the islands from November to March, as at this time the weather is dry and cooler than in the summer (from April to May) when the weather becomes hot and humid with little rainfall.

Throughout the year the temperature can swing between 22 to 27 degrees centigrade.The lowest temperature hovers around 17 degrees centigrade and is experienced in December when cold Siberian winds sweep across the country. But even at this temperature, the seas are usually warm and beach weather predominates.
