This was our first time in Providencia. We didn’t even know about the existence of this piece of paradise if a friend hasn’t told us about it. We were hesitant about going as it would have taken time away from our adventures on the mainland. Oh, how happy we are that we did! In fact, out of 13 day trip, we spent 6 days in Providencia. We found Pirata Morgan on Expedia. I read a lot of great reviews and once we saw the photos, we decided that this is our home in Providencia.
We were not wrong! The hotel is beautiful, the staff very warm, welcoming and helpful! There is a big grocery store right across the street.
Our room had a sea view and we spent hours sitting on the large patio.
Scheidner is the guy to go and book a boat tour for snorkelling. Just ask about him at the reception. We spent 5 hours with Harley, our guide and he told us all about the history of the island.
We were amazed of how much pride the residents of the island take in their heritage and how welcoming and friendly they are with visitors.
We felt at home. We felt safe.
Go to Providencia and stay at Pirata Morgan! You won’t regret it!
