    Another mind blowing sunrise from Gringo Perdido … when you combine it with the bird song and breathing trees, its quite magical.

    Gringo from a Distance

     

    Directly in front of the village of El Remate is the Mayan Crocodile … said to be the Protector of this area. If you look closely, you can see Gringo Perdido nestled along the shore at about mid-mouth.

    Gringo Breakfast

     

    Everyone agrees that the breakfasts at Gringo Perdido are superb. Not shown here is the first course of fresh fruit, pancakes or hot bran muffins, mango granola and yogurt (both made in house)… all followed by fresh fruit juice, black beans, fried potatoes with thyme, scrambled eggs and hot bread or tortillas. Topped off with the best coffee around. We make all of our own freshly baked breads and desserts and serve top quality raw jungle honey.

    A New Diving Platform

    This week Santos finished refurbishing the unusable pontoon boat so it can be used as a diving platform in the lake in front of the docks. For the last several years, the boat has been grounded because no matter what we did, one pontoon leaked. In the end, Eduardo decided to have the floor rebuilt, the whole thing painted, and holes punched in the other pontoon so it, too, would fill and sink … then moor the boat permanently off the dock to be used by swimmers.

    The New Dock

    The new dock is almost finished now, needing only to be painted and furnished with lawn chairs and chaise lounges for guests to take in the sun. The Mayan stairs on the right will take you up to the new patio area.

    Full Moon at Gringo Perdido

    From the restaurant of Gringo Perdido, we watch the rising full moon of August 2008 as it casts its golden path across Lake Peten Itza. You can see the glimmer of the lights of El Remate across the waters.
