Puerto Galera in September

Hello Everyone!

My wife and I will be going to Puerto Galera in September.

Does anyone know answers to the following questions:

1. What will the weather be like? I know it's rainy season, but how rainy?? All day everyday, or just for a couple of hours everyday? Or rainy some days, clear the next.....

2. Is it high, low, or medium season? Is it ok to just look for a room when we arrive?

3. Are ther any atms?

Thanks everyone!!

Hi Matt

I'm hoping to Purto Galera in September. It is coming to the end of the rainy season. I have a partner in Batangas and she says it is still raining at the moment but also long spells of sunshine.

I've been there a couple of times this year and can not remember seeing any ATM's but there are money changing kiosks and some of the hotels also exchange money in Sabang anyway. For what it all costa I just pay the hotel on credit card and take cash for other spending.

We have never booked a hotel or room, just looked for one once we arrived. In June we spent 2 days at White Beach and then hired a banca to Sabang and stayed there for 3 days.

Enjoy your trip

Hi Matt,

I grew up from San Teodoro , a town near Puerto Galera and here's my answers to your questions:

1. Weather : It will be raining for hours then will be sunny there after. Mind you, there might be typhoon but not as strong as in August. Puerto Galera normally enjoys good sunshine despite of having rains in some parts of Mindoro. I don't know why but that the reality I have accepted.

2. It is low season. You could really ..really ..really find a good bargain for your room. Make tawad as we locals call it. Look for rooms when you get there...

3. There are no atm's . The AtM are available in Calapan, which is sometimes off line...You can pay using credit cards in some establishment but generally cash is mainly use.
