Cuyo Nightlife, Philippines

Most of the foreign visitors visiting any tourist destinations in the Philippines seem to be restless. They spend almost the whole day touring around different scenic spots but yet they still have the energy to party at night. Foreign visitors are common sights at night in different scenic places of the Philippines.

The tourists’ stay in Cuyo definitely differs from the rest due to the place’s frivolity to materialistic activities. Spending the night in Cuyo is totally a different experience. With a limited commercial establishments and tourist facilities, the visitors can spend the night with their relatives serving as their hosts or in the sole accommodation facility in the island town. The people of Cuyo sleep early and wake up early in the morning.

The bats in the island caves and the fishermen of Cuyo are the only known nocturnal in the area. The town exhibits a complete silence at night with only the stars and the lights from the fishing vessels adorning the Cuyo nights. The beaches and the islands are only accessible at the daytime due to their remoteness and lack of tourist facilities. The development of a new and complete resort at the heart of the island promises complete amenities to sustain the nightlife and evening adventures of their visitors.

The Paloma Lodge offers a different experience to stay for the night after a busy day. This lodge has only six rooms and a shared toilet or cold shower room. Each room has a fan and bunk bed. This lodge is located in Sandoval Street just 200 meters away from the town’s pier.

Just a few steps from lodge is the Sandoval Canteen where the visitors and the locals alike can experience special grilled fish and scrambled eggs in their breakfast. The specialties of the canteen include the jackfruit and bean soup and the locally renowned semi-exotic specialty the Lato. This is one of the seaweeds that can be eaten raw. These bunch of green, tiny, grape-like seaweeds are freshly harvested from different islands of Cuyo.

At present the fish grills and bonfires along the seashores near the mainland of Cuyo are the only possible activities that the tourists who don’t want to spoil the night in bed can do. These activities are just allowed for a limited time due to lack of security measures around the place and the high tides engulfing almost all the shorelines that appear dry in the daytime.

The lack of night activities in Cuyo is overshadowed by the fun-filled adventures and glamorous places that the island offers with the rising of the sun.
