Why the Lean Months are the Best Times to Travel to Cebu

With over 7,100 islands and 81 provinces, the Philippines holds plenty of attractions to travelers. One of these is Cebu, called the country’s Queen City of the South. With myriad natural, historical, and commercial sites, Cebu makes for a great destination for every kind of tourist. That’s why the city receives a lot of visitors throughout the year, especially during the peak months of summer.


But while it’s nice to come to Cebu during its peak or warm months, it’s also advisable to fly to the province even during the lean months. There are a number of benefits for travelers choosing to visit Cebu City during off-peak season:


  1. Less crowds in the province’s major tourist spots. Cebu has a lot of picture-perfect destinations. These include the Magellan’s Cross, Basilica Minore del Santo Niño, Taoist Temple, the Heritage of Cebu Monument, Fort San Pedro, Yap Sandiego Ancestral House, 10,000 Roses of Cebu, and Temple of Leah. Not to miss out are the nature attractions: the Sirao Flower Garden, Osmeña Peak, Pescador Islands, Sumilon Island Sandbar, and Kawasan Falls. During the peak months, there will surely be tons of visitors in these places and one would be hard-pressed to find an ideal spot for photos without the crowds. But during the shoulder season, when these places aren’t packed with people, travelers would have less of a hard time finding a great and less-crowded setting to take snaps and selfies.


  1. The weather is generally good. True, the Philippines experiences wet and dry seasons, with the former being the lean months for travel in the country. But Cebu’s climate is largelypleasant even during the rainy season. The province normally gets typhoons once a year or none at all, considering that the country gets about an average of 20 typhoons annually. So that means even if one travels in Cebu during the wet months, the rains won’t be a hindrance to their tour itinerary.


  1. Prices are cheaper during the lean months. Airlines and accommodations will be vying for one’s attention as the number of travelers start trickling down. So this is the best time to get much cheaper rates for flights and stays. Many airline and hotel companies would be offering promos to attract people to book with them, and these would be to the advantage of tourists because it will help them save money.


One of these is Costabella Tropical Beach Hotel in Mactan Island. The Spanish colonial-inspired resort has a Lean Season Offers that give guests up to 20% discount in the rates of all its rooms.
