I don't blame you at all. This is the place to live right up to the end. That Buco is sure good stuff. Don't know much about the rest but natural living is usually pretty good. If ya ever need a doctor for treatment or to quell a concern. On this Philippines page check the Useful Links and then look for The Pinoy Doctor site. Easier to locate the right one there.

If/when I have to use a hospital, I will use the one inside the Freeport (Baypointe). The hospital is new and the doctors seem to be competent based on my experience. I have heard some nasty rumors about the new one in Barreto...

I am living here 6 yrs. now and saved enough money to go back home and buy a house CA$H.I lived on the beach for $20/night for the last three years had a nice quiet life.But when I had to go to the city is when I always had BIG problems.My apartments were all robbed.I never got a deposit back from a landlord.No one keeps their word here,NO ONE! I have been cheated by all I did business with,once at a high cost,trust no one.Find one girl who can do the purchasing for you,if not...you will be cheated everywhere you go.the real estate prices are LAUGHABLY high and 7-10 X's higher than back home.interest rates 11-14%,lol!!! if you do not have $2,000/month (the dollar/euros are all losing 10% yr. 3yrs. running w/inflation,)stay home. I lived really well on the beach,but it is time to call it a day and go home.you need start up money.Car or scooter=5,000 euros.head for the beach....surigao,dinigat,palawan,camiguin,boracay. ..the cities are h*ll-holes...stay away!

btw,if you are not in good health the health care in the Philippines is 3rd world a la carte.be forewarned...you need PHP15,000 in your pockets at all times just in case you need to be hospitalized.and the doctors,well.... good luck.if you are not healthy,I would stay home.if you have a heart attack in the philippines going to a hospital,especially in the provinces,will not save you.

Sounds like you are looking forward to leaving Philippines. Can't have been too bad though if you saved enough in 6 years to pay cash for a house in USA. Best of luck for the future.
