As an all-round destination Bohol scores highly; the diving is reckoned to be some of the best in the world, the famous chocolate hills are noted for their unique and bizarre topography, and the plucky little tarsier primate is the island’s curious mascot.
Transportation links to and from Bohol are also excellent. It is about one hour by catamaran ferry from the terminal in downtown Cebu city, which is less than 20 minutes transfer from Mactan-Cebu International airport.
Regrettably, a powerful earthquake in October 2013 rattled the island and damaged many of the churches and other buildings of historical interest, but failed to significantly disrupt the tourist services offered on the island.
The weather is at its best from December to March when it’s dry and less hot, for the rest of the year it gets muggier with increasing rains leading up to potential typhoons later in the year, but these aren’t common in Bohol and visitors are seldom disappointed by climate.
