At the same turnoff as Omega Jungle Lodge ,
Casa Cangrejal (tel. 504/408-2760, www.casacangrejal.com , US$87 s, US$104 d) is a new and spectacular four-room bed and breakfast, built out of stone along a mountain brook (and overlooking a natural swimming pool). Beautifully designed by owner Karen Treherne, the stone home is warmed by the woven tapestries on the walls and luxury linens on the beds.
There is a large shared patio with a bar, pool table, lounge furniture, and a grill, where barbecues are occasionally prepared for guests. Amenities include wireless Internet and a small fitness room. There’s no air-conditioning, but rooms stay cool thanks to the foot-thick stone, and each has a fan as well.
