Where to stay in Cumbuco

Accommodations are never too far away from the action in Cumbuco because it's a compact town. A number of sizeable hotels sit directly on the beach and are equipped with swimming pools, on-site restaurants and unobstructed ocean views. Those who prefer smaller, quirkier properties should opt for a bed and breakfast, known locally as “pousadas.” Although Cumbuco’s offerings include several luxury guesthouses, pousadas tend to be good value and are, on the whole, more affordable than hotels. Guest planning a long stay may prefer the privacy and amenities of a house or apartment rental.
