Cebu, Philippines is indeed one of the most well known island in the Philippines. Consisting of 187 islands, It is also Philippine's oldest city.
This island is the most favorite island in the Philippines to be visited by tourist from all over the world.
Discover stunning waterfalls, serene beaches, cliff diving, swimming with the whale shark and soo much more...
November - May
Is the best time to visit Cebu (weather wise) since these are the dry months.
Although some island tours are best to be visited during these months, your only frustration will be the crowds that will flood the islands as this is the season that really gets crowded.
All island tours are definitely enjoyable with good weather.
These are the rough months as these months are the storm season in the Phillipines.
Although may be best to be in Cebu these months since you are away from the crowd and not too many visits Cebu during this times. It still can get bad as you wont be enjoying your tours as it may get cancelled due to rough weather.
Because these are the months away from tons of tourist that floods El Nido, best to have the best pictures without people always getting in the way.
What you should know?
*Book your accommodation in advance in the peak season:
Cebu City is a popular island amongst Filipino and Foreign tourist that it gets all fully booked during the peak season which is on "Sinulog". Hotel Rooms, Van transfers and most especially, island tours get fully booked even in two months prior.
*Mactan International Airport:
Cebu City is about 45 minutes away from the airport.
*Expect Heavy Traffic:
Unquestionably, I can compare Manila's traffic to Cebu City. Peak hours are 7am-9am and 5pm-8pm so one of the best decision is to rent a motor bike instead of car or commuting via bus if you really want to enjoy the most of your travel here.
*Main Dialect: Cebuano
Cebuano is the main dialect being spoken in here but English and Tagalog are also widely spoken so you don't have to worry about trying to communicate to the locals here.
Places that are Best to Stay
If you really want to save money and time, it's better to stay in places near town, to free yourself from a lot of tricycle transfer
plus those streets are the most accessible to all restaurants, bars and shops.
