Living in Metro Manila can be a fun and exciting experience with a vibrant atmosphere, diverse cultures, and endless opportunities for entertainment and recreation for some. You can easily discover hang out spots, newly-opened restos, and you have endless opportunities to socialize and have fun with various concert announcements.
But for other people, the fast-paced lifestyle in the city can be overwhelming and tiring. Added to that, long lines of traffic, air & noise pollution consistently plagues the busy streets of Metro. These inconveniences prompt other investors to look for properties on the outskirts of Manila.
Provinces in the Greater Manila Area (GMA) provide people relief from the rush of city life while still enjoying the conveniences of living in the outskirts of metropolis. And one of those provinces is Cavite.
Cavite: The Historical Capital of the Philippines
Dubbed as the Historical Capital of the Philippines, Cavite is known for its rich history and culture, as it played a significant role in the country’s struggle for independence against Spanish colonial rule. Many historical sites and landmarks can be found in Cavite, including the Gen. Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, where Philippine independence was declared, and the Corregidor Island, a former military base during World War II.
Aside from that, Cavite is also known for its beautiful beaches and scenic countryside, making it a popular destination for tourists and travelers. Some of the must-visit sites include the Malibiclibic Falls, Mt. Pico de Loro, and the Tagaytay Ridge.
Cavite is one of the fastest growing and most industrialized provinces in the southern shores of Manila Bay. Although it is the second smallest province in the CALABARZON region, Cavite is filled-up to the brim with various career opportunities, and business growth. The expansion of the Greater Manila Area coupled with various infrastructure projects by the government slowly transformed this agricultural province into a booming industrial hub.
Why Invest in Cavite?
A stone’s throw away from Metro Manila
Cavite is strategically located just south of Metro Manila, making it easily accessible to the country’s capital and other key cities. It is also located near major ports and transportation hubs, which makes it an ideal location for businesses.
Access to the province is also made easier with major road networks such as Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX), Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) connects Cavite to nearby urban areas like Manila, Makati, and Laguna.

Less Air Pollution
One of the reasons why people prefer to move into the suburbs like Cavite is because of the poor quality of air in Metro Manila. The large number of vehicles traveling the roads of Metro is one of the major sources of air pollutants in the city.
Various Infrastructure Projects
To improve accessibility, the government has launched different infrastructure projects in the province namely: Sangley Point International Airport (SPIA), Cavite-Tagaytay-Batangas Expressway (CBTEX), and the Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge. These ongoing constructions are expected to decongest the roads and reduce the travel time going in and out of Cavite.
With more roads linking Cavite to other nearby urban areas, local and foreign companies will also start to flourish in the area. In return, this will create more employment opportunities for Cavite residents.
Also, Cavite is home to twelve economic zones and industrial parks. The PEC Industrial Park is the largest economic zone in Cavite. This 177-hectare industrial park provides employment opportunities to those living in cavite and nearby provinces. Moreover, the tourism industry in Cavite also boosts employment in the province.

Particularly in Dasmarinas City, you can find the De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute, Emilio Aguinaldo College, Technological University of the Philippines-Dasmariñas, and De La Salle University-Dasmariñas. It is the abundance of colleges and universities in Dasma that earned its moniker ‘Cavite’s University Capital.’
