Heading to the AC with my wife mid July for 6 nights. Looking for opinions as Resort vs Condo vs House rental. Would like to spend somewhere between $75.00-125.00 a night. Looking at the postings there seems to be alot of constuction around certain areas. Any certain areas to avoid?
In search of an island to fall in love with.
Any day trips or restaurants we can't live w/out?
All opinions to help make this a wonderful trip is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
ticketgeorge
PS
My wife would like a pool.
My goal is Snorkel,snorkel, and fish
The food can make the trip.
I still salivate over meal we had in Bermuda 4 years ago

Caribbean Villas Hotel has both rooms and suites for under $125 per night in the summer (ask for discount from posted prices if you book directly). They are small and quiet, south of town with a 15-ish minute beachwalk to town. Only 10 suites & rooms on 3 acres of land with great staff, hot tubs, free bikes, long pier with swimming and snorkeling area. We prefer south of town for lodging: usually quieter but easy access to town; plenty of good restaurants in the area. Recommend you query any place you consider staying concerning on-site or nearby construction.

Our "don't miss:"

Snorkeling: Alfonse Graniel, L'il Alfonse under "Goods & Services" menu above, phone: 614-5450; 226-3537; great guy & guide, wonderful with people & fish; ask him about other snorkeling sites after you visit Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley

Fishing: Ramon or Severo Guerrero, phone 226-2325, 226-2324; E-mail: servero@btl.net; great fishermen and fun to spend a day with; they cook a great beach picnic with your catch and will send fillets back with you for you or a restaurant to cook for future meals.

Catamaran Sailing: Geraldo Badillo, 226-2264, fun and serene

Parasailing: Fido's Dock

Great local food: Los Cocos restaurant on north end of town, off middle street past Richie's Supermarket (Save-4-Less); wonderful whole fried snapper and fish fillets

Have a great time!

Well, George, myself, I like a condotel. My favorite restaurants are Jambel's Jerk, Ambergris Delight and Papi's. None of these are upscale but have a real feel of San Pedro to me. They are also right in town.

What we need to know from you now, is whether or not you want a swimming pool, if you want to be within walking distance of town and restaurants or if you are looking for more seclusion. Do you dive, snorkel, fish?

Help us to help you.

Mel S.,

Thanks for the message. Great family, eh? Geraldo's Dad was the first person to ever take us snorkeling on AC. We've never fished with Geraldo, but will have to in the future since we've seen your glowing recommendations. Take care and thanks, again!
