This post serves as a guide to those people who are planning to get a house and lot here in Cerritos Trails. We moved here just September last year and though it was not easy at first, coming from the ever convenient Makati City, we found ourselves getting by slowly each day and eventually liking and loving the place. I’d like to share some information on schools, nearest hospital, shopping areas, churches, public utility going to Metro Manila.
Cerritos Trails in the second phase of Camella’s Cerritos subdivision, it’s farther from the main road than the Phase 1. It is also bigger and more spacious than the first phase. The Camella Cerritos is located within the Camella Meadows and Springville communities, about 10 to 15 minutes drive from Alabang.
Tricycles are everywhere. The fare from inside Cerritos to the Springville gate is P35-P40. From SM Molino to inside the village is P70.
To Makati: The terminals for GT express vans (both Makati and Pasig) are located near the Springville gate. They operate mostly during weekdays and up to around 11 am only. The vans pass through Daang Hari Rd., then Alabang, going to the skyway and exits at the Makati Exit (Amorsolo Street). Another option going to Makati is to ride vans going to Lawton (wait at the shed across the little market), then alight in Buendia.
From Makati: The terminal of GT vans is located near the Jaka Bldg. & Standard Chartered Bank, ask for the vans going to Queensrow, Pag-asa or Golden. All of them pass through Meadows and Springville. Another terminal is located in the parking area near SM Makati, corner Ayala Ave. and EDSA (look for the signage Camella-Skyway).
Where to shop: Palengke is just 5-8 minutes drive from Cerritos. It is located opposite the Springville gate. SM Molino is just 5 minutes away from the Springville Gate, during rush hours. There are drugstores, LPG stations, and water refilling stations inside Springville. There’s also a convenience store right at the gate of Cerritos Trails.
