Visiting Boracay in October

The peak season when going on a vacation in Boracay would be in the summer which is sometime between March to June. However, those periods are also the peak season which makes it the most expensive time to go there. The same is true during November and December where a lot of tourists and foreigners spend the holidays on the island resort.

The alternative would be to go during off peak or off season. It’s more quiet, less crowded and the hotel rates are at its cheapest. However, the weather might not be the best — it could be a bit rainy, windy or sometimes you get caught in a typhoon.

July, to October would be considered off-peak in Boracay. Sometimes you get lucky and see the sun the whole day. Some times, all you get is a heavy down-pour.

    Off peak is more economical but sometimes it is worth the extra money to visit a place in its prime time.

    I’ve been there and the place is great but if you want to have a peaceful and relaxing place to have a vacation, this is not the place to be. A place like Amanpulo in Palawan would be the perfect place for you people who wants real relaxation in paradise. Check it out if you’re interested.

    Just avoid going when there’s a typhoon, and you’ll be fine! What a great suggestion–you’ll get cheaper rates and more elbow room, too.
