Pension houses on 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.

Many of these pension houses accept reservations as early as October but most require a minimum stay of 3 days.

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