Crazy Canucks was started by Harry and Sandra Burnett from Canada,(BC area I believe). There for it became Crazy Canuck's, situated on the property known as Playador. It was Aqua Lodge before La Joya del Caribe.
That same property was owned originally by Cory McDermott and Ramon Nunez. It was sold to a relatively of Ramon Nunez and a partner. Then sold to Harry and Sandra.
Then it became owned by ECI and named Exotic Caye Beach Resort.
The bar was leased by several others but the last ones were Rob and Krista.
The whole property is changing and will become Marriott Residences.
It was the Playador after La Hoya del Caribe and before the Exotic Caye. Harry and Sandra Burnett had the place from 1991 thru 98 and named the bar Crazy Canucks. Way back it was Ramon's II.
Previous owners Krista and Rob have opened a new place in Boca del Rio called Nauti Crab, t Seven Seas on the beachfront. The new place is awesome and all the employees are still there!!. Still have the crab races.
When Mickey's Restaurant was upstairs on Wednesdays she served the biggest best burrito ever for $5. What a blast. Also Rasta Pasta Pizza Amore used to be upstairs.
Jesse Cope hung out there for many years...
