Gregarious, eccentric (and sometimes irrascible) British expat Peter Lawrence opened the island's only backpacker-style accommodations in 2003; then he opened a budget hotel across the street, along with a sports bar and pizza joint, which became a local expat hangout, and now he has added a new group of "deluxe but cheap" rooms. At Pedro's Hotel, in high season you can get a "deluxe double" with king bed, private bath, cable TV, free Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning for around
BZ$175. Regular rooms are BZ$142 including tax. Hostel beds at Pedro's Inn Backpacker Hostel are BZ$22 per person (there are two single beds in each of 14 hostel rooms.) Both hotel and hostel guests have access to two swimming pools.
