A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to spend some days at the la Perla resort in San Pedro.
Clean, working airconditioning ,free WIFI.
Plenty of extras available like snorkel gear and kajaks
I absolutely loved it. What a breath of fresh air! Finally a place that felt Caribbean. I try to stay away from resorts that look like a Las Vegas hotel. In many Caribbean countries you start to see this trend. Making the typical bohemian colourfull Caribbean vibe disappear. Not in this place though. White beaches, lovely houses, hammocks, turcoise waters. The place was all peace and love . Sometimes we didn't feel like cooking in our villa so we took a 5 minute walk along the beach to have dinner at the lovely restaurant of the Matachica resort! Fresh fish or delicious lobster. In the daytime we chilled on the beach or just stayed in the hammock ,reading a book under the umbrella of the pier . Another day we took a small boat who took us to the village of San Pedro. A lovely mix of foreigners and locals. A bit of Rasta feel here and there. Absolutely loved it!
The highlight of my trip was a snorkel tour on the reefs. We arranged some local boys to come and pick us up at the pier. They took us , with a small boat, straight to the reef. Swimming between the reef sharks and huge sting rays is something I'll never forget.
Thank you San Pedro and above all thank you La Perla. Truly a jewel of the Caribbean
