Hi, Nice forum and glad I was lucky enough to find it. Haven't been to Dumaguete for a couple years but my wife and I have been discussing it as a likely retirement spot. She's been reading the local papers on the web and has been concerned with the amount of crime being reported. Is it really getting bad or is it media hype? We spend a lot of time on Bohol, and have Tagbilaran as a fall-back position, but Dumaguete seems to offer better services, and good diving as well. However Bohol doesn't seem to have much of a criminal problem. Anyway, we're curious what people living in Dumaguete think of the situation (assuming it really exists). Thanks!
