Comments Seven Seas was a time share swap for us. They charge for water and electricty for the week. Nominal charge. Great staff at the resort. Just north of town, good local resturant around the corner for breakfast and a small store across form it and a wonderful bakery just up the road. Dinning is a treat, just walk down the beach and pick a place. Belize is hard not to like. San Pedro has growing pains and there is a lot more motorized traffic than our last visit 3yrs. ago. The locals claim that they are trying to address this and retain the charm of bicycles and golf carts. Heck, you can pretty much walk the whole island in 15 minutes or at least get where you want to be in a short time.Patojo's is a small well run operation, reasonable, they rinse and store your gear for you and have it set up the next day for diving. Patojo is a native and has great tales to tell as well as knowing the best dive sites. Small groups and quick boat rides to and from the dive sites. This is a wonderful place to dive. The locals are great, the weather was great if your looking for nightlife, some exist but if you want to party hadry go someplace else. look for me again in SanPedro diving with Patojo, it'll be hard going elsewhere for a while, it may take many visits to get bored, but I'm going to try......
