I live in Dumaguete and have for several years. Last few years there have been several articles in magazines and newspapers about Dumaguete and Philippines that are written by people who have never lived here and possibly visited for a day or two and they are just bogus articles designed to get readership.

One source of accurate, uncensored info can be found at Dumaguete_NoBS (google it). It is highly negative but has many untold truths about the Country and Dumaguete.

Before you spend a great deal of money coming here, do your research. The web has a huge percentage of inaccurate forum and other information about this Country and it's culture, designed mostly to placate advertisers and get you to spend your tourist dollars here. Do not believe all these expat forums that are sponsored by tourist businesses and people who are making money off tourist businesses here. They are heavily censored and controlled.

Dumaguete is a nice small town, but not the best place to retire unless your old, with a partner and just want to kick back, drink and eat. There's nothing special about the place, no arts, no good beaches, mediocre restaurants (many with high prices), bad air and terrible traffic.
