Diving in San Pedro - 10/04/00 12:06 AM

We got the last flight out of San Pedro on Saturday morning (thank goodness). We would like to come back, when will tourists be able to return? Or should we just stay away. We are only here until the middle of October. Would the locals want our business (diving, etc) or would be just be in the way if we tried to return in 1 or 2 weeks?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I'm not sure if your response is sarcastic?!? If not, my apologies. We feel our question was perfectly justified.

So as you know, we are in San Pedro the last two days, and everyone here has been extremely friendly and happy to have us. Everyone has smiles on their faces and a super attitude. Too bad none of those people could have responded to my message, because they would have surely let us know how welcome we are. We have been diving, and staying in one of the hotels that are open (I think there are three in town). Everyone is working hard and appreciates the few tourists that are here. So if any of you out there are hesitant to travel here, don't be. The only thing you need to be aware of is lots of debris, intermittant power loss, and cerfew of 10:30. The alcohol ban is lifted, the diving is great (albeit lower visibility, around 20 meters), and Fido's restaurant is serving up great fare.

I don't think anyone here wants us to hammer and nail, they would like the tourists to come back.

kelly- the hotel we were supposed to stay in this sat. told us they cancelled all reservations til after dec. i saw the pics of san pedro, it doesn't look bad at all. i don't understand what to do. i have not cancelled the air fare, but i've been told all hotels in san pedro are booked.
i was told there 90% of ac has no power and there is little food and resturants are closed. i really don't understand how this could be.

TexasCat, I understand the hotels that are operating are housing the electric and phone repair people, that have been brought in, to get the services up and running.
