The Time for Traveling

The Dry Season, the season with the highest temperatures and best weather, occurs from December to April in the Philippines, with the best months being March and April. From June to October, there are extreme precipitations, the majority of those happening in the North of the country. May and November, as they are between seasons, have inconsistent temperatures and weather.

Money

The official currency of the Philippines is the Philippine Peso. Other currencies can be converted into it all over the country. As the payment with a visa isn’t widespread around the country, it is recommendable to have at least from 5000 to 10000 pesos as cash at hands at all times.

Language

As the union of more than 7000 islands, many languages are spoken in the country (more than 170), but only Filipino and English are the official languages.

Passport

European citizens only will need a special visa if they want to stay longer than 30 days.
