If you're planning to experience the ultimate Boracay holiday with cloudless blue skies and a calm, glassy sea, then you'll want to time your trip during the dry season which typically runs from November to May. If cooler temperatures are also preferable, then stick with the months closer to the beginning of the dry season. By March, temperatures often reach the high 30˚ Celsius. However, keep in mind that even in the dry season, it's not uncommon to experience some rain. Heavy all-day rain showers like what you might experience during the rainy season are unlikely, though.
