How to get to La Aldea Buena Subdivision

How to find La Aldea Buena SubdivisionWe once lived here for a few months before returning to Bogo. However I decieded to leave this post in as there are plenty of places to rent in this subdivision. Enjoy the photos here.


Here is a series of annotated photos showing seven turns you need to make to find the La Aleda Buena Subdivision. This is south of Mactan International Airport you will see low flying planes over head here all the time.

Here’s a nice way to find the subdivision using landmarks. Go from the old bridge from Cebu over to Mactan, go down until the road starts to turn to the left a gradual curve. Then start looking for a Tattoo sign on the right. Directly after he Tattoo sign you will see a road and a Petron station on your right, make a right turn here. It is a sharp right at this point. Drive down this road, first you will see a Lotto sign on your left than a little further on you will see another  brightly lit lotto sign sticking out of a building on your right. Make a left right at that sign between some buildings. Go down this road not making any turns until you arrive at a fork, at this fork make a left or kind of just stay streight at the fork. Continue on for a while until you see the subdivision sign La Alede Buena. Make a left at the main entrance to the subdivision. Drive streight until you see a circle. At the circle make a right tuen and go all the way down until you see a basketball court on your right. Make a left just after the basketball court. Go down, count 3 streets and on the third make a right turn. now look for our house block 21 lot 8. View the images here to recognize he house we are in.

  2. Hi Charles,

    Are you posting directions with pictures to your home? Business? No way I would do that with mmy home.

    I’m confused where you are… I’ve seen several indications that you are in Bogo City. I am asking as I am too. We should get together.

    You just have a child? I’m not sure that I’m not getting you mixed up with others. Feel free to email me or maybe I will email yoyu.

    1. I have a large home in Bogo but the internet is too slow as I build WordPress websites for a business. Therefore we are renting here for P 5,000. My business is in my office at this townhouse so not only is it my home it is also my business office. This place is guarded by a guard at a single entry point, and the house is never left unattended.

      1. looks like you put a lot of work into taking all the pictures and giving full detail descriptions. Looks nice Charles. Keep up the good work. God Bless you and your family there!!!
