The trip from Antigua to San Pedro or San Marcos usually takes about three and a half hours, but due to road repairs can now take four-five hours. So morning departures from Antigua are better, because the 2 PM shuttles often arrive after dark. This is expected to continue for several months, and we’ll update the blog when transportation and shuttle times and other info changes.
From San Pedro to Antigua, shuttles now leave at 7:30 AM, so they still get in by 12:30. There are also 1 and 2 PM departures.
Every Tuesday at 6 PM, El Barrio serves a different home-cooked meal. Tonight Karl and Trish introduce a new item, Buffalo Chicken Casserole. (Anything topped with cheese and bacon has got to be good!)
And in the Zona Viva tonight
At Alegre Pub, it’s Mexico night. Chicken fajitas, discounts on Mexican beer and cocktails. Plus a free tequila shot with every beer during the Drinks on the House special. No word yet on the free movie at 7:30.
