The top Thanksgiving dinner in San Pedro is at Cafe la Puerta on November 27 at 1 PM. Full traditional menu for Q150, reservations recommended. Call 5284-2406 or drop by the restaurant on 7th Avenue.
In San Marcos, El Dragon Hotel will serve Thanksgiving dinner from 5-9 PM for Q50.
With top of the line American-style food, everything from Biscuits with Gravy Sausage to Philly Cheese Steaks, the Blue Parrot Bar and Grill reopened yesterday in #SanPedrolaLaguna. There’s a big new bar and lots more happening at one of the top restaurants at Lake Atitlan.
Service is quick, food is great, and it’s also a hangout for locals as well as a popular restaurant with tourists.
The Blue Parrot Bar and Grill is across the street from Bar El Barrio on 7th Avenue.
Hours: 7 AM-9 PM, daily.
The legendary El Barrio Pub Quiz returned from the land of the living dead last Wednesday, and the next one is tomorrow night’s. Starts around 7 PM. Super prizes and drink specials.
Roadwork on 148, the road from the main highway to Lake Atitlan, is complete, so no more delays for now.
Road repairs in Jocotenango, just outside Antigua, has also been finished, so traveling between Lake Atitlan and Antigua now takes 3.5-4 hours by shuttle.
We recommend the Casa Verde shuttle, as they have been running a small bus instead of a van recently. More comfortable seats, better shock absorbers and more space make a big difference, especially on the last hour of the ride down 148.
