Best Time to Visit Iloilo
The best time to go to Iloilo is from January to June as these are the dry months and the hotels are cheaper. If you go there in December, rates are more expensive. Just like most cities in the Philippines, Iloilo has two seasons: wet and dry. It is always recommended to go there during the dry months because it is difficult to go anywhere in the city when it is raining.
If you want to witness the colorful culture of this city, you should make travel arrangements for January as this is the time for Iloilo’s biggest festival, the Dinagyang. It is held every 4th weekend of January, and is celebrated with bright costumes, tribal designs and upbeat music all day long. The performers would dance on the streets and entice everyone to join in the fun. Of course, Iloilo has many local festivities too and the great thing about it is, many of these falls in January such as the Hinugyaw, a street dancing similar to Dinagyang, and Pasungay, a local term for bullfights.
