Ok so there are two of us coming to AC the week of March 13-20. We are young and looking for a fun, but not to expensive place to stay. So far we are either thinking about Caribe Island or Corona Del Mar. Any suggestions for a good place to stay? We want something that is right on the beach, has private bathroom, possibly kitchen or refridgerator, porch or veranda, and maybe a pool. Also where can you rent golf carts? Can you get a chauffer?? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at Tradewinds Paradise Villas

It has everything you want and more! You can arrange through the front desk to have a cart when you get here as well as beverages for your fridge. Think fast, March is looking very busy at this point If you don't have a room yet you may not find one.

Hey, there's always my place, right on the beach, just North of Wet Willy's. Just kidding! Tradewinds (pool), The Palms (great location plus a nice quiet pool in back) or Ramon's (pool and lots of beach) all of those are nice and close to all the action.

We usually stay at the Caribe Island when we visit San Pedro and we love it. The rooms are really nice, they have a great pool, and Albert the bartender makes some killer drinks. Caribe is about 3 miles away from downtown, so a golf cart helps but it is not needed. The Caribe provides a free shuttle into town at dinner time. Manuel the driver is awesome. IF you wish to stay in town longer all you have to do is tell him what time you want to be picked up and where and he will come and get you. He is extremely reliable. There were even times when I called Manuel on his cell phone and asked him to bring me a case a Belikins from the beer distributor and I got his normal reply "No Problem". Caribe is a great place to stay at.

Hi Bonjoe,
Thanks for the endorsement!! Do I know you? When was the last time you visited? We have done a good bit of renovations in the last few months.
I'll buy you a Belikin next trip.

Check out Bananna Beach, nice clean, reasonable, 2 pools, new restaurant and friendly staff. No I am not related to anyone there, just find it a good place to stay. Visited friends staying there in Jan. and found it very nice. If you are looking for a budget place and right in the middle of town consider Spindrift Hotel. Close to everything and much cheeper than Bananna's. Whereever you stay go to San Pedro soon.

Ramon's might be fun for you. I hope you're not expecting a vast, long beach on AC. If you haven't gotten tickets yet, Jenny @ Capricorn travel has put together a couple of great trips w/air & hotel for us. We just stayed at Xanadu but it might be a bit quiet for you. I can't tell if you've been to AC before but it's not Daytona Beach (or whatever the cool beach was when you were in school). We mostly rode bikes around or walked. I highly recommend taking bikes across the hand ferry to the north side and riding the bumpy road north. You can stop for a drink and then head back. Enjoy!!

One more thing, you definitely want a place w/a pool or a dock. Lots of seagrass along the shore.
You might also want to consider a side trip to one of the Mayan Ruins (Lamanai or Altun Ha). Snorkeling trips are great too!

if you've been reading this board, you know i stayed at caribe island. it was very clean and had all levels rooms from efficiencies to 3 BR lofts, all with private bath, kitchens, air, cable tv, pool with bar/grill, etc.

you will prob need a golfcart (tho they have free bikes), and here is a pic of my chauffer:


pay her airfare and she can be yours too!
