If you can afford to come here from Canada/US/England/ Italy/Germany, stay in a $200+ per night accommodation and go diving every other day, why on earth are you nickle and dimeing and bartering with the locals over $5 cab rides, water taxi fares and/or a slight additional charges to pick you up or drop you off at your pier 4 miles south of town. Gas is outrageously expensive in San Pedro! Give your head a shake!

I feel so much better now smile

I talked to one too many people today with big fat wallets who were screaming bloody murder about $5. You want me to understand? Sorry. You're an ass.

No! You know I love you and your fat wallet smile That was totally bad wording on my part. 'They want me to understand. They are asses'. How's that?

Hon, good rant, and totally accurate. I don't believe in taking advantage of the locals any more than I believe in the locals fleecing the tourists. Also, thanks for pointing out that it isn't only the ugly Americans, there are uglies from everywhere.


Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

I've had visiting divers staying at one of the most expensive hotels here who refused to pay US$10 per tank for nitrox. They did 10 dives in the week so refused to pay US$100 - and complained the entire week about the short bottom times they were getting. There's now't so strange as folks.
