Ruben Trejo at 15 years old raking the sand at Ramon's Too in San Pedro, 1985. Same location for Aqua Lodge, La Hoya del Caribe, Playador, Exotic Caye Beach Resort, Crazy Canuck's, Marriott Residences
This was Ramon's Too. Down the beach from Ramons. Micky cooked the meals in the big building upstairs. I remember a washtub of shrimp salad! Ramon's thatch roof cabana's were the inspiration for Mariah Reef Resort.
That 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 Burnett.
Then it became owned by ECI and named Exotic Caye Beach Resort.
The bar (Crazy Canuck's) 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, and Aqua Lodge before La Joya del Caribe.
Ged Baren: I used to stay at a friends place just behind Ramons Too ... Hunters Moon... as well as Pirates Lantern with Taff and Rose... they weren’t on the beach but we used to hang out in front of the hooches near Ramons...great days
