Katherine in Jomalig Island

Hi there!

Tara Lets Anywhere is a travel and food blog about the Philippines and other countries. “Tara lets” is a local slang for “let’s go,” and this site will take you on a journey to discover the best tourist attractions, staycations, food, and travel tips in the country.

This blog is written by Katherine Cortes, a 30-ish software engineer and freelance writer/editor. She started this blog in 2015 as a way to document her backpacking journey with her boyfriend and eventually turned it into a well-rounded travel site. She likes staycations (especially those with amazing views and a hot tub), beach trips, food trips, and having a quiet nook where she can read her e-books. She also promotes sustainable tourism.

Follow her socials at Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok.

    Hi Katherine, loving your blog! I’m from South Africa and planning on adding the Philippines to my travels next year. What is the weather like during April/May? Would you recommend travelling to the Philippines during this time?

    • Katherine Cortes

      April/May is summer so the weather is generally good, altho this is also peak season so expect huge crowds on main tourist attractions and make reservations in advance. 🙂

    Stumbled upon your blog and smiled. My husband’s name is holly. We usually spell it hali cause people often times mispronounce his name. I am kat by the way. 🙂 nice blog!

      Hey, thanks! Hali’s name is Halley but he spells it as Hali because people mispronounce it as well. And people I correspond with always call me Tara! Haha. That’s why I had to put that explanation above about tara lets being a Filipino phrase.
