MotorSarge:
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.

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.

HTH

Thank you.....more research to do.
I Just don't want to sweat 24/7/365.

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.
