Best months of the year to visit Cebu, Philippines

  • Similar to most other Filipino islands, January to April is the best time to visit Cebu
  • This is the driest months of the year in Cebu, where you're likely to get lots of sunshine and little rain
  • You don't really have to factor temperature into your visit timing decision because there is almost no variation in daytime and night time temperature in Cebu any time of the year. Day time maximum is about 30C any time of the year, and night time low is about 24C any time of the year
  • Other considerations:
  • January-April is also tourist peak season. If you want to avoid this then consider visiting in late December or early May
  • Typhoon season in Philippines is usually between July and September, but this doesn't affect Cebu all that much. However, there's always a chance something is going to hit
  • Sinulog, which is the biggest festival in Cebu and one of the biggest in the entire country, is held on the 3rd Sunday every January. 1-2M people visit it every year. While it's religious in nature, for most people it really is just one giant street party. It's worth checking out:
