Lodging and Accommodation
When coming down, we recommend that you consider staying in Durango. Frankly there is nothing to do on the San Juan when you are there. It is fine if you want some basic accommodation on the river and just fish for a day, but there are basically minimal decent eating facilities and one bar.
Durango is only 45 minutes away on a major arterial highway. It is a great town with excellent food and facilities to support a population of over 16,000.
Have a look at some webcam shots.
Accordingly we have made some arrangements with some local establishments which we recommend highly. Furthermore, if you take out a guide trip with us they will give you a 10% discount off their accommodation bill. Hence we are very keen to promote these establishments to you.
