The name “Pampanga” comes from the word pangpang meaning riverbank, a fitting name for a flat country crisscrossed by a hundred small branches of the Pampanga River. The province lies in the southern portion of the central plains of Luzon. It is bounded on the east and southeast by Bulacan, on the north by Tarlac and Nueva Ecija, on the west by Zambales and on the southwest by Bataan. Towards the south, Pampanga opens up to Manila Bay. The terrain is flat except for some hills in the northwest, which form part of the Zambales Range, and for Mount Arayat in the northeast while along the bay are extensive swamplands. The climate is very distinct with the rainy season from May to October and the dry season from November to April.
