I am trying to plan a trip to AC in May to catch the off seaason rates. What is the weather like in May, and can anyone suggest a reasonable oceanfront hotel - i've bee looking into paradise villas and banana beach. Also- what's the cost of living? Is it relatively cheap to hang out on beer and burgers each day?

Any info would be great! Thanks

You should try the Holiday Hotel. Center of town, on the beach, all rooms are beach front and a great bar there!! The staff is Great!!! and the rooms are good.... during May you can probally get away with 75 to 85 a night with a fridge!!!!! You'll need it for you beer. Ask for Ms. Reyes and she'll take care of you, Tell her that Rick and Cheri sent you!!!

That's like taking coals to Newcastle!
But I have never eaten better fish or chicken for such a pittance.
Pick your places. I asked my dive master where he ate. He really didn't want to tell me, but after I bought him a couple of lunches (I think they cost me $4.00 US each) he did.
I'll never tell anyone -- It is the best kept secret in town.
Don't miss the Friday and Saturday night BBQ put on by the Lions. Abundance of good food, fun people and a good cause.

cc - I also will be in AC in May - first trip - and decided on Lily's. Its right on the beach maybe 20 or so steps to the water and an AC OceanView room with porch/terrace is $55. I am told it is neat, friendly, & well operated.They have been very helpful in booking via the Internet.

I would consider both Paradise Villas and Banana Beach not moderate but high moderate, around US$90-$125 off-season depending on how you book, but both are excellent, especially Banana Beach.

In the moderate category, I'd recommend Coconuts and The Tides, and Mayan Princess if you can get a value pricing. In the past, they've had off-season rates in the US$65-$80 range. Don't know how they will shake out this year -- probably depends on how the economy is in El Norte.

Lily's, along with Ruby's, I would say are low moderate/budget, Lily's being at the low-moderate side. Ruby's starts at under Us$25.

Don't forget the San Pedrano and the Conch Shell in the budget hotel category. Each will run you about $30 a night for a double. I've stayed at the San Pedrano, clean.... good beds, Haven't stayed at the Conch Shell, but I've heard good things about it.

I used to stay at the Conch Shell on all my trips to San Pedro. $25.00 a night for two beds a hot shower and kitchen with fridge up stairs. No a/c, but I didn't need it with the breeze right on the beach. Also the dock in front is a good place to buy fish if you catch the fishermen coming in at about four.
