Welcome to our City

The City of Cagayan de Oro is the business center of Northern Mindanao, categorized as a first class city. It lies along the northern coastline on the island of Mindanao, the Philippine’s exotic southern island. CDO is one of the Philippines' most progressive cities . It’s a coastal city facing the Macajalar Bay. Several creeks and rivers run through the city. The southern portion of the city is dominated by hills, gorges, plateaus and mountain ranges of Bukidnon province.

The city is known by many names such as "Gateway to Northern Mindanao" because of its location and good transportation facilities, "City of Whitewater Rafting and River Trekking" and “A City in Bloom, in Blossom and in BOOM!" but officially it is known as the "City of Golden Friendship" for the naturally warm people and old-fashioned hospitality.
