Nestled on the edge of the South China Sea, the Philippines are a biologically rich and diverse chain of islands. Typically, by entering through the capital of Manila, divers from all over the world flock to this area and then send themselves out to far flung, exotic, and wide-open spaces away from the cities.

lbl_planet_country_intro_health_safety

As is common in most of the great diving nations of the world, stick to bottled water. Use sense in other areas and you should be fine. In high tourist season, which is outside of the rainy season, currents are typically calm. Outside of the cities the nation is a relatively safe place.

Being close to anything that may be considered illegal can come with a harsh penalty, even if you’re not involved. Even certain things which may warrant a slap on the wrist in your home country can come with a large penalty here.

lbl_planet_country_intro_costs

A nice dive day is going to run you $100US or slightly less, on average this will include two or three dives. Food can be found for as little as $1 a meal, and rooms for $10 a night. From there it goes up to taste, of course.
