Cagayan de Oro at a glance

CDO is a city in the Northern Mindanao region. In 2014, it was chosen as one of the nine “emerging cities of tomorrow” by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme thanks to its rapid growth among a few other factors. Currently, the city is considered the business hub and regional center of Northern Mindanao.

The Cagayan de Oro culture is well-known for its famous festivals and tourism which includes adventure sports and activities like zip-lining, hiking, and water rafting. Despite being known for its beautiful surrounding nature, the city is also known for its bustling shopping centers and lifestyle attractions.

Cebuano is the primary dialect used in the city followed by Tagalog. English is also used, which makes CDO a very friendly place for tourists looking to visit or settle down here.

Moreover, compared to cities like Metro Manila, Cagayan de Oro has a lower crime rate and less road congestion. If you’re thinking of fully relocating here, you can rest assured that you’ll find the sweet spot between relaxation and enjoyment, especially with the friendliness and hospitality signature of the Kagay-anons.

According to, CDO is in the top 15 percent of the least expensive cities to live in the whole world. What’s great about the city is that it has numerous options depending on your budget so you can easily find a way to work out your dues for travel, food, and other necessities.

There are so many master communities in the city that provide security and exclusivity, all while providing the best of both worlds in terms of lifestyle preferences. Unlike residences in megacities, spaces are bigger and less congested too without the steep prices.
