One of Cebu’s most anticipated events, the Sinulog Festival, is drawing close and there is a certain buzz in the island in anticipation of two festival main events – the Solemn Procession and Grand Parade.

Since major Cebu City streets will be closed during these two activities and travel by vehicle difficult, a good option for visitors would be to stay in hotels or inns near the procession and street dancing routes.

MyCebu.ph has compiled an initial list of affordable pension houses along the Grand Parade route and included rates and contact numbers. Be warned though that the rates, except otherwise indicated, are for regular days. Expect these to increase during the Sinulog procession and parade week.

Pension houses along P. del Rosario, Junquera, and RR Landon streets
These places are near the Cebu City Sports Center, which is the start and end point of the Sinulog street dancing competition. The parade starts on P. del Rosario, which intersects with Junquera St. An added advantage of this area is it is near the University of San Carlos (USC), where one of the street dancing judges’ stationS is located. Sinulog contingents perform their whole routine in front of the judges’ stations. The solemn procession also passes nearby.

The street dancing also goes through Osmena Boulevard but inns here are farther away from the Cebu City Sports Center.
