    Warning about Sto. Rosario Heigth in Dumaguete

    If you are planning to rent an apartment in Sto. Rosario, then consider this warning.

    There are many people in this area who do not follow Philippine rules and laws. This applies above all the disturbances at night. Dogs on some property and free-running dogs on the street sometimes bark for hours without the owners taking care of it. Rabies vaccination for street dogs? Forget it and be careful.

    It is common to incinerate waste of all sorts wherever and whenever although it is forbidden (Republic Act 9003). The result is polluted breathing air. Partly also toxic substances are burned, a disaster for young and older people in particular.

    In new building sites it is sometimes even worked at night and of course on Saturday and Sunday.

    Since one year, the number of fighting cocks on private land has increased significantly. Expect a cock “concert” at the latest from 3 o'clock in the morning, may be very near to your pillow in bed.

    If you're looking for a quiet, healthy-looking area, avoid Sto. Rosario.

    A good quality of life can hardly be mentioned here at this Sto. Rubbish Rosario Height.

    I rent an appartment in Santo Rosario Heights since about a year. I don't have the kind of problems you evocate. It's a bit noisy as on the main street but it doesn't bother me, I have constantly all the windows open and I sleep very well at night. I sleep early as usually I wake up at dawn, aroud 5:30 am, and I practice 1h30 to 2 hours of mountain bike every morning from here to Valencia and Bacong.

    There are lots of dogs on the roads and trails as well as other animals, cows, goats... Dogs like to sleep on the roads. I'm used too and it doesn't bother me.

    Also when nights are rainy, frogs can be a bit noisy.

    What you describe with free-running dogs and fighting cocks in Santo Rosario Heights is very common in the baranguays here in Dumaguete-Valencia-Bacong, nothing specific to Junob and especially Santo Rosario Heights.

    I have a good quality of life here in Santo Rosario Heights, with a bit of fresher air than in downtown Dumaguete and less pollution...

    Hey Mr H, welcome to the board... Maybe i'm the one who's naive, but i think there are quite a few subdivisions in fairly high rent areas of dumaguete where large numbers of loose dogs bark at all hours and roosters crow. Most of our neighbors are quiet by 10, even dogs have to sleep sometime... We can also smell fires burning and people doing construction at odd hours. The only thing our "local" neighbors really got cranky about was late night music from one expat house. That got solved with one meeting at the barangay chief's office. As Francois said, you get used to it, after 3 years we did. In other woids, "deal wid it."

    might i suggest for you,... a different country? otherwise, you will have to adjust, or forever be disturbed and perturbed.

    One of the strangest things in the Philippines is the sound of roosters in the morning no matter where you are.

    Not just the Philippines, seems to be a Spanish thing. It goes on in almost every country they colonized.

    If I said yes she would take a dull rusty BOLO and circumcised me.
    If I were to say NO I would be a lier.
    So I will just keep it a secret. :doctor: :facepalm: :happy:
