Luzon is the Philippines’ largest island and home of the capital Manila. Central Luzon is home to big cities, some nice beaches, majestic mountains, large picturesque lakes, and a good infrastructure.
Central Luzon is an all-round destination, with great diving, hiking, birdwatching, and surfing. It has a variety of landscapes to explore, beaches to relax on, and urbanized cities to wander around. Day trips from Manila are the most practical, but several days exploring the volcanic calderas and landscapes or relaxing on nearby beaches can also be worthwhile.
It is extremely easy to get to Central Luzon from other regions thanks to the island’s great highway network. Clark International Airport compliments Manila’s national hub, and more preferably for accessing Northern Luzon. It’s 90 minutes away from Manila by car.
The weather is best from November to April when the region is at its driest, with the rest of the year being wet and prone to typhoons late in the year. The temperature drops considerably in elevated areas towards the North. July and August are the wettest months, while May is the hottest month of the year.
