This consists of Barangays Buas, Pescadores, San Agustin, Paralaya, Paligui, Bahay Pare and Pulong Palazan. GENERAL CHARACTERISTIC • Complex of freshwater ponds, swamps, and marshes with surrounding areas of seasonally flooded grassland and arable land on a vast alluvial plain. CLIMATE • The climate of Candaba is practically similar with that of the rest of Pampanga. It is characterized by two (2) distinct seasons: the wet and the dry seasons. The wet season starts from late May and end around October, the dry season from November to April. • The average yearly rainfall is 90 millimetres and the monthly average is 139.3 millimetres. During wet season that is from July to August, the temperature is between 25.8 degrees centigrade and 26.0 degrees centigrade. January and February are the coldest months. TOPOGRAPHY AND SOILS • The terrain of the municipality is generally flat with 0-10 % slope except at the swamp which is concave. On rainy seasons this area is always under water. The swamp represents the lowest area in Central Luzon. This unique terrain causes flood water to separating some barangays from the town proper. • Because of the swampy topography of the town, constituents far north and south have to travel via Bulacan or Nueva Ecija during rainy seasons to reach the town proper which is thrice the distance travelled during dry season.
