Where to stay in Canoa Quebrada

A small settlement quickly developing into a major tourist destination, Canoa Quebrada features numerous inns offering affordable rooms to tourists visiting on a budget. The least expensive of these small, often family-run establishments provide very few amenities and do not offer advance reservation options. If you don't wish to shop around upon your arrival, choose one of the area's mid-range guesthouses, which frequently offer access to private parking areas, rooftop terraces, and swimming pools.
