I've lived in dumaguete 13 years. It's a good place and reasonably priced. Good climate but no good beaches, the nearby mountains are excellent for adventurous people. It's a laid back small city

Dumaguete seems to attract lots of Cheap Charlies and USA lefties from California. So many foreigners not wish to speak up about the crime but there is certainly some of that too. For a city its size Dumaguete has a serious drug problem and the criminals that drugs attract. You should know foreigners have zero rights in the Ph. Police will protect the local native drug crazed over the foreigner because that's the law! Fact of the matter is police have instructions how to treat the foreigners and its not to the foreigners advantage. Don't be fooled by ignorant sexpats who remain clueless their whole time in the Ph.

Been living in Dumaguete for two years. Very little rain. Nice place to live. Very safe. Restaurant choices are average. Port, bus and airport all close. Rents are increasing. There are about 10,000 forighners living here. People are nice. Getting really crowded. Not a good inferstuckure set up for all the new people moving here. Overall a good choice to live here.

My 4th trip here in 13 years. Been here this trip about 3 weeks now. My how it has grown!My wife is from Dumaguete we've been married 10 wonderful years. I have always enjoyed my time here.Retired last year and looking to build a house soon. I've been treated very well and cant complain about the prices. Even her relatives have fiber optic service to there homes! I guess I'm still amazed that I'm not hated for being a US caucasian male and I'll go completely out of my way to keep it that way.
