Hello and thank you for your question!
There have not been any other reports of the scorpion in any of the villas. I personally feel very comfortable and travel with my kids to Belize often. The Villa is fully enclosed, but it is a tropical location and scorpions do live in Belize. I suggest shaking your shoes before you put them on and zipping up your suitcase when not using it- or hang cloths in closets. This is just to be certain, but it's not a common issue. I hope that helps!
As with most all of the island, the water is very shallow and has sea grass. The beach itself is soft white sand. The reef is 1/3 mile of shore and you can take our kayaks out there to snorkel - there is a mooring right at the reef across from La Perla.
Good morning Dimitri:
Provided that there is sufficient wind, we can assist you in renting windsurfs. Another popular sport on the island is kite surfing. There are shops that give lessons in both windsurfing and kite boarding.

The water taxi is definitely the way to go. San Pedro is quite a small town, and the water taxi is only two or three blocks away from the airstrip. When I booked at La Perla, they have it all arranged for us, so our taxi driver showed up at the airstrip, drove us the three blocks, and loaded everything for us onto the water taxi. I tipped the guy a few dollars. He also asked us whether or not we needed to go grocery shopping beforehand - you should totally do it, as supplies in town are cheaper than up north.
I don't imagine you need much transportation minus going into town - the water taxi is I think $11US per person each way, but we sometimes just got a whole boat for $40 each way. The town itself is very small - just a few blocks wide and maybe a mile or two long, and walking is definitely the way to go. You can rent a golf cart for $40 or so a day, I believe, but road conditions are spotty in town, and definitely poor outside of town.
