Rainy Season Adventures!

The best time to travel in the Philippines is from February to May only. After these months, you might encounter flight or ship delay/cancellation, or be stranded at the port or airport due to a typhoon or bad weather.

Going to the beach is not an option. There will be no blue sky, a lot of clouds and rain.

But from November up to January, I still travel around the Philippines even though it is raining. And the best activities/adventures to do during rainy season are the following: 

1. White River Rafting 
Either you go to Chico River in Kalinga, Cagayan De Oro or Davao. Rain is number one reason why you will love white river rafting. The rapids will be a lot stronger and there will be a lot of adrenalin rush and thrills along the adventure.
Luzon - Chico River
Mindanao - Cagayan De Oro or Davao

2. Spelunking
Spelunking/Caving is becoming popular in the Philippines. 
For those living in Luzon, you should not miss seeing the caves in Sagada, Quirino and Cagayan.
For those living in Visayas, the caves in Negros Oriental. 
While for those living in Mindanao, there also caves which you can visit.

3. Going to the Falls or Rivers
Have you experienced the rapids going to Pagsanjan Falls, Laguna or Bamboo rafting at Villa Escudero, Quezon? If not, maybe it is time that you should do so. Rain is not a problem in going to the river or falls. In fact, waterfalls are best seen during rainy season when the water peak or pouring is at the highest!
