Journey Latin America’s accommodation ratings are our own, and often based on staff inspection visits. They may not be the same as the classifications properties claim for themselves. We may also apply these ratings, in broader terms, to boats.
First Class Superior
The highest levels of comfort and service and, in larger properties, a full range of facilities or an added feature, such as a special historical context or spectacular setting.
High quality and well managed. Larger properties have a good range of facilities. Smaller ones may focus on stylish décor and excellent, personal service.
Mid-range accommodation with additional facilities and/or enhancements such as an historical context or privileged location.
Comfortable en suite accommodation and facilities aimed at the mid-range traveller.
No-frills, good value with down-to-earth service. Often characterful family-run properties or homestays, rooms usually have private facilities.
These hostels, refuges or homestays, often with shared bathrooms, offer only basic facilities and are likely the only option in the area.
Tents are provided and staff to prepare meals. You may need to bring your own sleeping bag/mat. Toilet and washing facilities are basic.
