Cold Front in San Pedro

It is absolutely freezing here in San Pedro. People are wearing wooly jumpers and long pants with socks and hiking boots.

There are rumours that we are going to have snow, and if this is the case the Ambergris Daily will have a snowman building contest with huge prizes. There will also be a prize for the  person who spots the first iceberg.

So for all of you who are stuck in the USA and beyond please have a kind thought for those of us who are truly suffering here in San Pedro.

Charity Poker Tournament Tonight

Do not forget that the poker charity tournament is tonight and starts at 7.00pm. at Pedro’s

Everyone is invited to come and play or just drink. Remember half the money goes to library.

See you all there.

Pepperoni’s blame Pedro’s for Liquor License Raid

For years Pepperonis have been operating without a liquor license and they were, just recently, raided by the authorities and have got themselves into trouble.

Through the grapevine they are accusing Pedro’s of reporting them which is not the case. However the Ambergris Daily would like to point out that if you sell or allow alcohol to be drunk on commercial premises it would be a good idea to follow the laws of the country.

Paella Night a Success

Pedro’s guest chef Hugo from Aji cooked two different paellas last night, and was wolfed down by the waiting crowd. He cooked a meat special with shrimp and a shell fish special. Unfortunately there was not one speck of rice left.

If anyone wants to try Hugo’s paella visit him at Aji at Bella Vista which is open everyday from 11.00am till late.

A New Sueno del Mar? Royal Caribbean Hotel

Reports are being received by the Ambergris Daily of  the Royal Caribbean hotel selling off its huts to prospective purchasers for prices between 85,000usd to 135,000usd. According to people in the know it is very unclear on what they are selling as the land is definitely not part of the deal, and there appears to be no lease on the land which is owned by a seperate company. Therefore where can the huts be placed or moved to?

We at the Ambergris Daily do not see what protection potential purchasers have. It could in our opinion end up being another Sueno del Mar where the bank or the suchlike end up with the property, and all who thought they were owners lose out or even worse end up with the original owner.

More next week as it dfinitely seems that there are more questions than answers.

The CAMA Lounge

The CAMA lounge is reputedly opening, this weekend, on the north side of the bridge. It will be owned and operated by David and Alexandra Hauptli (nee Nicholson).

Readers of the Ambergris Daily will remember that David and Alexandra formed a gang that relieved the unfortunate Oberhaus’s of 10,000usd. It seems incredible to us that this couple now want tourists to visit their bar. I wonder if their employee Jesse who made a miraculous recovery from her non-proven injuries will be working there.

Our advice is for everyone to give their business a wide berth and avoid going there at all costs

The Trials and Tribulations of Living with a Vet

At 3.00am this morning my cel phone started to ring, and of course it was impossible to find. Well, after finding the phone I called back and found that it was Janet from Seaduced and her dog LaLa was being violently ill.

Dr. Laurie got on the phone and told her to bring Lala to the San Pedro Animal Hospital immediately. After a while Laurie came and woke me up and I had to come and help her put in an IV into Lala’s arm. Dr. Laurie got back to bed at 6.00am, and will have to do an emergency operation this morning which will hopefully go well.

Even though I say so myself we are lucky to have a 24 hour on call veterinary service here in San Pedro. The one bad point is that I have to help and learn how to be the vet’s assistant which at this time in the morning definitely interrupts my hangover.


As a veterinarian in San Pedro, I have to say that one of my least favorite sights is a dog with advanced heartworm disease passing through my clinic door.
