Welcome to Dive Into Philippines, your trusted navigator for unravelling the wonders of the Philippines. Our primary goal is to streamline your travel planning process by delivering in-depth content that aids in selecting the best accommodations and experiences.

We may have a financial relationship with some of these services and products we mention.

What are Affiliate Links

Affiliate links are unique URLs provided by vendors that track the referral from our website to theirs. When you use these links to make a purchase or a booking, we may earn a small commission.

These funds contribute to the sustainment of Dive Into Philippines, helping us to continue offering the valuable content you rely on. Importantly, using these links does not impose any additional cost to you.

Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance

In our mission to provide prime travel planning content, we only affiliate with reputable sites such as agoda.com, klook.com, and 12go.com—platforms that exemplify ease of use, fairness in pricing, and provision of high-quality products and services.

Our selections are deeply rooted in our own positive experiences and the consistent satisfaction reported by our readers, not motivated by the potential for revenue.

Transparent Earnings Disclaimer

While we earn commissions for bookings through our affiliate links, we take measures to prevent this from influencing our content.

Our agreements with our partners enables us to maintain similar commission rates across their various services, ensuring our recommendations are grounded in quality and value for our readers, not potential profits.

Commitment to Honest Reviews

Our independence is paramount. We do not engage in partnerships that demand editorial input, ensuring that our reviews and recommendations are honest reflections of our user experience, unaffected by the prospect of earning commissions.

We prioritize your trust and satisfaction above all else, remaining objective and authentic in all our assessments.

Your privacy is a concern we take seriously. We are committed to maintaining the protection of your data in line with our comprehensive Privacy Policy.
