We loved Dumaguete City so much due to a lot of Dumaguete tourist spots we admired and a few local places to eat at that we loved! You can also visit the markets and enjoy its beautiful beaches. It is such a quiet and peaceful place. What we liked the best in Dumaguete is it’s convenience when traveling to nearby provinces like Siquijor, Apo Island and Oslob, which is a must when visiting South Cebu. In this blog post, let’s talk about the top places in where to stay in Dumaguete!
Best time to visit Dumaguete
If you’re looking for a party in Negros Oriental, the best time to visit Dumaguete is on the 3rd or 4th week of November. It is when the city celebrates their festival dedicated to Sta. Catalina de Alejandria, their patron saint
Weather-wise, the best time to visit Dumaguete is from February to March and from May to early June as this is the driest and coolest months of the year. Still, year-round temperatures really don’t vary much in Dumaguete. Rain does fall quite often during the wet season, though, especially around October, so you might want to consider visiting earlier in the year.
