For those of you that may have visited or lived in both Cebu and Baguio.
Give me your personnel pros and cons of either.

Much thanks.

For those of you that may have visited or lived in ....... Baguio.   Give me your personnel pros and cons of either.

We looked hard at Baguio for a long time.  Tons of visits.  Talked with all manner of "real estate agents", and sellers.

The show stoppers were ....

Price of property.  (way more expensive than down in the flat lands)
Geological stability.  (land/mud slide capitol of Luzon)
Air quality.  (sits in a "bowl" surrounded by mountain peaks)
Water issues.  (maybe we were just unlucky but all of the places we considered had supply problems)
Cost of living.  (relative to the provinces, Baguio is expensive)

In the end we chose a place close enough to the extended family to be friendly, far enough away to be sane.

I hear you.   Welcome to the tropics.   It took me about 4 years for my blood to thin out.  Now when the temps drop below 75f I shiver.

Why those two place only ?  They are good...  but there are many other it is a big country.

Any place you pick,  will occasionally need to travel to Cebu or Manila for reasons.   If you already live there,  it is shorter travel.

If cost of house(rent or buy) is important other locations that are nice can be much less expensive and still have a lot of features.

Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

It is said to be cooler in the Tagatay area while being somewhat close to Manila.  The city of Valencia above Dumaguete on the island of Negros is also cool.  I would imagine anywhere in PI with an altitude greater than about 700 meters would be noticeably cooler relative to the flatlands close to sea level.

I will take note of all the cooler places mentioned and then when we visit we'll try to reach them all and go from there.

Thank you for the responses and please add more that some of you may have been to.
