Do you want a kitchenette unit? A pool? What's your budget? Do you like it really quiet or do you want to be closer to town? Does your daughter dive? How old is she? Is she so young that leaving her while you dive is a problem, what are your intentions? With regard to your safety concerns, are they in general, diving, or for your daughter, etc?

Do you mean accurate up-to-date info, like directions to Pedro's Inn given by the owner himself?

No my daughter doesn't dive, she 18. The reason I'm concern for saftey..just stories I've heard of violence in general. I would like to stay on a beach with rooms about 50$$.I would like to dive the hole and maybe some beach snorkling for my daughter, she's afraid of deep water, you know, a bottom you can't see! Also what would be the best airline/fare? or can I get packages from the hotels there. I'm a no frills gal. I like it cheap but in a safe location. I'm used to diving in Cozumel and St.Thomas. I don't have the time to really research this properly. Thanks for any help or advice you can give me.

Sounds like Ruby's is the place for you. No frills, inexpensive, on the beach and you can walk most anywhere.

As for beach snorkelling, well, there's not much in that category. There's some decent life hanging out under Ramon's dock though and Ruby's is near there. I'm sure your daughter will enjoy hanging out at that dock too.

As for which airline, where are you starting out?

Where are you hearing and what are you hearing about the violence. Just in general, as for your safety concerns, be careful just like you would be at home, in Coz and especially St. Thomas.

By the way, you say you haven't done much research on this trip. Are you aware of what it costs to dive the Blue Hole?

Hey Sky,
Ruby's would be a good budget place, another good budget place is Lily's, for about $60 anite you get a small frig in your room. Safer location, close to center of town.
Ruby's is south edge of town, darker area & some shady local's hang out there.

As far as diving I'd go with Amigos Del Mar...
Have a great trip & p.m. me if I can help in any way, been going down every year since 89.
