Thread: Looking for the name of a bar on Big Corn

    Default Looking for the name of a bar on Big Corn

    Roughly 10 years ago I went to big and little corn - and unfortunately - haven't been back since.

    On Big Corn, I stayed for nearly a week in a little place called the Dolphin Hotel (might not be the name, it was something like that). Aside from the bed bugs, the hotel was really neat as it had it's own little section of beach off the side where my travelling partner and I would spend the whole day swimming in and drinking Tonas. Good times, hard to believe that was nearly 10 years ago.

    Anyways, one night my friend and I travelled down the road a bit to a little tiki-type bar on the side of the main road. They played mostly country music and some reggaetón. It was small, maybe only 10 tables tops.

    I know my description is very vague, but if anyone knows what this bar was called, I would appreciate it.

    Many Thanks!

    Are you sure that is wasn't Little Corn and the hotel was Los Delphines?
    Do you remember taking a ferry / panga to the island?
    The bar / restaurant is across the street from Tranquilos (still there??...probably not) on the beach, 8 tables, and about 500 feet north of Los Delphines.
    Can't remember the name of it though. It was my go to place for food.

    It was 100% on Big Corn. It might not have been called the dolphin. It was two stories and on the beach side of the road.

    Now that I think of it, the beach that was right next to the hotel had a beached boat on it the word Adventure painted on the back.

    Also, the hotel had Dolphins on the upper balcony fence.

    I went digging through some photos to see if I could find any. Unfortunately, there are just two that show part of the hotel and the beach.

    The pictures don't give much to go off.
