Accommodations in Providencia tend to be disappointing, with poorly run hotels coasting by on the island's charms. Most options can be found in Aguadulce or Bahía Suroeste, where there's a growing number of small cottages, hotels and cabañas. There are places to stay all over the island, however, and the north – which is virtually traveller-free – can make for a pleasant contrast to the tourist enclaves down south.
