Many of our friends who are either from Santa Catalina or abroad have moved to Santa Catalina to live their version of the idyllic tropical dream and have created unique and cozy hotels, inns and hostels. We're happy to recommend but we also urge you to choose from the varied options available to you in and around Catalina. Below are some of those options.


La Buena Vida

La Buena Vida is located on the main road as you enter Santa Catalina and offers a variety of artistic private villas that are very clean & well maintained in addition to more affordable guesthouse options.
