Day of the Dead Dinner (Fiambre) in San Pedro at El Barrio

Ladies Night at El Dragon Hotel and Restaurante in San Marcos la Laguna at Lake Atitlan

Every Friday night in September, ladies drinks and beers are half-price at the lakeside bar, where this photo was taken last week. And you can get an all-night Jacuzzi Pass for just Q50. El Dragon also has a great restaurant, and the best Key Lime Pie south of the Florida keys. A friend who was there last Friday said, “Dragon rocks!”

El Dragon Hotel and Restaurante is on the shore of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, in the village of San Marcos la Laguna.

Complimentary snacks are served at 8 PM, and “Roving Boca Blasts” are also on the agenda. El Dragon is near the football field in San Marcos la Laguna, a quick boat ride from San Pedro and Santa Cruz. For more info, see El Dragon Hotel.
