Puyao River | Things to do in San Nicolas-Pangasinan

Puyao River (8) Puyao River (2) Puyao River (9)
Set against the backdrop of Caraballo mountains, Puyao River is a beautiful montage of clear flowing water, boulders, and green slopes. It is a popular relaxation area where locals would usually bring their own food and rent one of the straw cottages set up on the riverbank. Be warned, however, that this place is located in a rather remote part of San Nicolas. It is not particularly far from the town proper in terms of distance, but the absence of vehicle-friendly roads makes it difficult to reach. It is actually the same case for many of the town’s attractions. Thus, tourists are encouraged to get in touch with the local tourism office when planning an excursion around the area.

Nearby attractions

San Nicolas de Tolentino Parish
Attraction
4.65 km away

Two persons named Nicolas are key figures in this town’s history: Nicolas Patricio and St. Nicolas of Tolentino. The former is San Nicolas’ first leader, the latter its patron saint, a symbol for the town's Catholic faith. Together they helped shape a budding community that was comprised of native Igorots and migrant Filipino Christians from other parts of Luzon. As the town flourished and as more people were evangelized, the local chapel was elevated to parish status in 1846. This church was completely burned twice – during the Philippine Revolution in 1898 and World War II in 1944. Its latest iteration was built in 1958.

San Nicolas Municipal Hall
Attraction
4.80 km away

San Nicolas Municipal Hall is usually the traveler's first stop when launching an adventure in this part of Pangasinan. It houses the town’s local tourism office, where friendly officers can give a lowdown on all the information needed for a safe journey, as well as provide assistance on hiring local guides. Bordered by Caraballo mountains, San Nicolas is unsurprisingly home to a number of off-the-beaten attractions and hiking trails. But since tourism infrastructure has yet to improve, visitors are advised to first get in touch with the local authorities before proceeding with any activity.

Natividad Sky Plaza
Attraction
7.02 km away

Built on the hillsides facing the majestic Caraballo Mountains, Sky Plaza is a public park and view deck where visitors can enjoy sweeping scenes of Natividad and its neighboring towns. It is a popular hangout spot with adequate facilities: picnic tables, pay toilets, a small sari-sari store, a chapel, and even a 120-meter zip line attraction. It is likewise the jump-off point to the short but challenging trek up Ayat ni Apo Jesus, a pilgrimage site featuring a Christ the Redeemer statue standing on top of a hill.
