Providencia and Santa Catalina Things to See and Do

follow us


Providencia is a nature lover’s paradise, thanks to its idyllic geographical isolation and the fact that it remains largely undeveloped. More than just an ideal place to lie back and relax, Providencia’s status as a protected area means that a short stroll will take you from the center of town into a tropical wonderland that seems made for divers and hikers. Highlights are Parque Nacional McBean Lagoon, El Pico hill, Manchineel Beach and Santa Catalina.



One Saturday, head to South West Bay to see the horse races. Two horses are pitched against each other in a competition that extends the length of the beach. Millions of pesos change hands in bets and the atmosphere is electric.
