I made two visits to the Soggy Peso bar in early July. It is truly a "must-do" if you are taking a golf cart tour of the island, or easily reached by cab from El Centro.
Both visits were simply fun. A great place to take some time out of the sun and relax. The Soggy Peso offers a food special each day, as well as basic "pub grub". Or can sit and just enjoy drinks.
On my second visit, I happened to be the only one in at that time, and had a wonderful history lesson of Isla from Freddy, the bartender you have read about. I really enjoyed hearing stories and seeing some old photos of the island.
The Soggy Peso is the bar you wish you had at the end of your street back home.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ISLAND TIME Located on the beautiful Bahia de Isla, The Soggy Peso --unique and full of character--is just a short distance from El Centro(the island's business district). Our waterfront view allows the visitor to check out the fishermen leaving in the mornings and returning with their catches at sunset.......sunsets that are absolutely breathtaking over a cold cerveza or a glass of wine. But we are also convenient to the white sands of North Beach and the numerous bars and restaurants on Hidalgo Street But don't forget the Soggy Peso Palapa Bar where fishermen and colorful characters of the Island alike take pride in swapping their Caribbean experiences-----some true....some not so true. And the bartender....who refuses to be outdone......has the tendency at times of being slightly more interesting than his customers. Our laid back life style at The Soggy Peso personifies that famous line in one of Jimmy Buffett's songs..."Keep it simple , Stupid".So..... Bienvenidos!!!! Parrot Heads,Yayhoos, SnubQueens, and Good Ole' Boys!!!!!!! ALMOST FORGOT!.....In keeping with our Bed & Cocktail theme, each room guest will be entitled daily to some free Bloody Marys in the morning and some free Margaritas in the afternoon! ... more less
