Lodging on Providencia is a simple affair. Most places do have air conditioning, but not hot water. All told, there are about two dozen hotels and guesthouses strung along the island's coasts. The main tourism spot is Freshwater Bay (BahÃa Aguadulce). Over all, it is more expensive to stay on Providencia than on San AndrÃ©s.
As well as one hotel of its own, Decameron has five affiliated hotels on the isle. The majority of hotels, though, on Providencia are independently owned, family-run guesthouses. Renting a house or cabaÃ±a is an economical choice for families or groups.
Posadas nativas have also begun opening here in some of the most prime places. Posada Betito's Place (Cel: 314-471-5574, E-mail: email@example.com) is a shipwreck treasure-decorated inn with a view of Crab Cay. Posada Nativa Sunshine Paradise is on Santa Catalina Island (Tel: 514-9031, Cel: 311-227-0333, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, URL: www.posadasunshine.com).
