Is Cavite an Ideal Place to Raise a Family

Updated as of March 27, 2023

Everyone comes to a point in life where they would think about a place to settle down, whether it is to retire or to start a family. There are so many options to choose from when looking for a place to establish your roots, but there are so many things to consider when looking to buy a new home: an orderly environment, minimal air pollution, close to pristine schools, preferably close to major shopping mall chains and coffee shops, major road networks to take you to Tagaytay and other places, and even the best subdivision for a house and lot that has outstanding scenery and secure space.

Cavite is the fastest-growing province in the Philippines and is considered to be the best-loved destination for investors.  It is home to more than 30 industrial estates, generating an estimated USD 6M in export annually. Currently, there are twenty-five (25) more economic zones that are in the process of development, and house one of the best subdivisions to start a family.

Though this province is an ideal place for investors, is Cavite a good place to live and start a family?

Living in Cavite means being close to Metro Manila

The biggest attraction of living in Cavite is still its close proximity to Metro Manila and its prime cities like Las Pinas. Despite being a close neighbor, Cavite is still less densely populated than the country’s capital. In comparison, the 2015 census shows that Metro Manila has about 42,000 people per square kilometer, while Cavite has only about 2,300 people per square kilometer.

Cavite has access to multiple major road networks that could lead to the Metro and other provinces in the Philippines. One of the major road networks that just opened recently is the Muntinlupa Cavite Expressway, which is heavily utilized as it links Muntinlupa and SLEX to Daang Hari and Daang Reyna in Bacoor and Las Pinas. Cavite is also connected to the Manila Cavite Expressway via Aguinaldo Highway or Molino Boulevard.

One of the best things about this is that Cavite’s best subdivisions are in close proximity to these road networks, making the commute faster and far more convenient. The placement of this subdivision in Cavite is also accessible to public transport, making it easier for you to access shopping centers and other daily establishments, such as a grocery store or a convenience store.

Cavite offers a relaxing space that is now lacking in the city. Though the province has undergone urbanization in recent years, more than 40% is still agricultural land. This means that the province is still primarily green. Yet despite this, modern facilities are readily available for families. Premier schools and hospitals, as well as the most popular local and global retail brands, have opened their doors in the province.
