Choosing a place to settle in and raise a family is a major decision, as you’re essentially setting up the life you and your children are going to have. Things like cost of living, proximity to a big city, and the quality of schools and medical facilities are just a few of the factors that will shape the future of your family.
If you’re looking for somewhere to live that is less crowded and stressful than business districts, Calamba, Laguna is one of the best choices out of all the viable locations around Metro Manila. Aside from being a quiet city, here are the various reasons why you should consider starting your family in Calamba.
Ease of transportation
Traveling to and from Calamba is relatively easy, thanks to the several expressways in Southern Luzon, including the South Luzon Expressway and the ongoing Laguna Lake Expressway project. This is a plus for working parents who commute in and out of business districts.
Aside from that, tricycles, jeepneys, and buses are accessible in Calamba, so you can get around without hassle even without your own car.
Lower cost of living
Raising children is costly, so a low cost of living is likely your top priority when looking for locations to reside in. Compared to Metro Manila, it’s much cheaper to live in a province like Laguna without sacrificing the quality of life.
Access to health care
Calamba has great hospitals and medical facilities, so attending to your and your family’s health is one less thing to worry about. Barangay Health Centers are also equipped to provide primary health care. Notable hospitals in the city are Calamba Medical Center and St. John the Baptist Medical Center.
Access to education
Aside from health care, quality education is also very important when choosing a place for your kids to grow up in. Calamba also has this covered with great schools and universities, like Calamba National High School and the University of Perpetual Help Calamba.
You don’t have to go far if you suddenly feel like dining out or just strolling around the mall. Calamba has its own set of restaurants and shopping malls that you can quickly get to for a spontaneous family day.
Laguna’s proximity to Tagaytay is definitely a plus, but the province itself has great weekend destinations. You can relax at hot spring resorts and book a private villa for the weekend for some special bonding time with your family without breaking the bank.
