Perfect for weekend getaways, the provinces of Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon make up CALABARZON , a region that is closest to Metro Manila, especially Muntinlupa, Paranaque, and Quezon City.
This region boasts breath-taking beaches and dive spots; sprawling landscapes of mountains, hills, and forests, and relaxing waterfalls and hot springs. It is also home to Laguna de Bay, the Philippines' largest freshwater lake, Taal Volcano, Mount Makiling, Mount Banahaw, and Mount Macolod.
A place rich in customs and traditions, this mostly tranquil locale is also known for embroidered and paper mache crafts, wood sculptures, numerous native art galleries, historic structures such as ancestral houses and churches, and colorful festivals.
Filipino heroes Dr. Jose Rizal, Miguel Malvar, Apolinario Mabini, and the first president of the Philippines, Emilio Aguinaldo, were born here.
Of note, CALABARZON is the second-leading contributor to the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Its proximity to Metro Manila has lured major business players—from food to automotive companies—to build their factories and warehouses in this emerging region.
CALABARZON is a great place to work and live in. Choose from either one of Antipolo's house and lot, which provides a stunning view of the big city, or settle in one of the house and lot in Cavite City, which is a flourishing, fast-growing township.
