San Pedro 1977 or so, not a golf cart anywhere

Front Street looking north by Emma Varela's house. Shot taken in front of current Lions Den looking towards north....far end is where Milos store was and Santini Bar, and Helens Bakery was owned by Severino Paz. The yellow looking building to the end of the road was the entrance of Paradise Hotel.

Melos would be on the left behind the tall house. The Coca-Cola sign is where Maneley ice cream is now. Next to it is Martha and Abel Guerrero’s house. The old building on the left (third from the left, grey house on stilts) used to be the credit union for San Pedro. The San Pedro tour guide is there now. The one before that, second house on the left, is a little house on the corner that had daisies painted on it for a long time (click here for a better view of that house). The white house on the left is Ena Varela Guerrero's aunt and uncle's house (Ceni Varela & Leoli Varela). It's where Lavish Habit Cafe is now located. Right beside that house was the house of the priest when they use to come to San Pedro where the Lions Den is now.


Wish it still looked like this.

Not a golf cart anywhere :-) Jerry McDermott brought the first golf cart down, it had only one wheel in the front and the darn thing lasted forever! He also brought Halloween to the island!

Not one turista...miss those days

We used Puma Helicopters Remember, never bothered with wheels :)

Once a Harrier landed so someone could see girlfriend, others may know more details.

I know the stories (lol), they used to use my radio Antenna for wheels down target practice. Gosh, this life has been amazing.


I was Island Survival Instructor junco and it looked just like this so I would say 1977- or earlier! Anyone reading this in touch with our Beloved British Soldiers 'Ma' please give her my love. I was just down there and she still insists on charging me the same room rate she charged Soldiers I sent to her when I had no room at the army house 'Coral Lodge' (Opposite the Church)

Lets run some names by :) Peter and Peggy Hancock, Krugers (El Pescador) The Cooks (Trial non triumphant :( Carol whom lived in a trailer just this side of Pete and Peggys raised home (Carol sadly passed away soon after arrival, but like myself wished to be on an Island.. not sure you may remember her, my always Drunk 'Berlok' (I paid him a weekly fee to get his Boat 'Credtura' I'd borrow off the reef, poor guy, swimming all the way to the reef- always smiling, rip

and so on......

It was at least as late as 1980 and could even be later than that John.

Agreed, that's why I suggested 1977 as that is when I did my stag there. Hey, did not know ur from my towne of Canterbury. Do you know my Orphanage ... Eastry- 10 miles away ?

Born in Folkestone- a Man of Kent or a Kentish Man ?

Man of Kent, right side of the Medway. I know Eastry but not the orphanage

Google Grand Caribe and you can see the Hancock land. They are both buried on the little bit of land left in the family to the south and that has not been sold as yet. Natalie, Peggy's daughter, and her husband have a home up there to the South and I hope they don't sell that.

Ma' being- Martha!
