San Pedro is good mostly for people wanting to attend Spanish school, or it's a good place to stop in to get a massage. There is a multitude of backpacker toursist from all over the world that stay in San Pedro for an extended period. This hotel doesn't necessarily fit in with the "backpacker" style, although it's affordable enough to be put in that category. Rooms here run about $25 a night for a couple. The landscaping is beautiful, the service and staff are great and the scenery is wonderful. There are hammocks on the terrace right in front of the rooms. Sak'Cari is located right in the heart of some great bars and restaraunts as well as several Spanish schools. It's a great place to get away. The owner speaks pretty good English also. He's a very hospitable guy and always welcomes me very warmly when I visit there. This one is my choice in San Pedro.
