Just arrive and you will be given 30 days visa waiver, then extend before the 30 days is up. The other option is to apply from your own country.

Are you coming alone or with family members?  Wife a Filipina perhaps?

I will leap to the conclusion that you are alone and coming as a tourist.  That means you get the first 30 days free, as JGF mentioned.  Then the next 29 days costs you approximately 3,000 pesos.  Then you go back to BI before 59 days are up and renew for 2 months (ACR card mandatory and included for approximately 8,000 pesos).  Takes you up to about 2 days shy of 4 months.  Another 2K or 3K will get you one or two more months (depending on your departure date).  So all in you can expect to pay approx. 14K pesos (CDN$ 350) and about 3 trips to immigration.

Where do you plan to stay for those 5 months?

I agree. For just 5 months I think the tourist visa is the easiest (if traveling with a Filipina spouse you can get a 1 yr balikbayan stamp.)

On a tourist visa you get 30 days on entry, and can easily extend it at any BI office. One thing good here is that the PIs has a very easy visa for tourists. :tiphat:

This is pretty close to how I would have replied.

I will just add a link showing the location of the offices where the extension can be done.
