Tourism in La Cuesta

In La Cuesta you will find places where you can eat, like restaurants and sodas, but we always advise looking for lodging in Canoas where there are much more hotels and cabins since in La Cuesta there are no lodging places to spend the night. But also a very beautiful place that is worth visiting is Playa Pavones that is two hours far away from Paso Canoas. One of my favorites is Playa Zancudo, near from Playa Pavones. If you wish to have more information you can find it in the Section of Beaches, in the topic “Playa Pavones” or “Playa Zancudo” or in the section of Maps, choosing the map of the “Playas de la Zona Sur” that means “Beaches of the South Zone”
