La Cueva del Pirata
Hotel & Restaurant - Bar
Camalu, Baja California
Surfing is very popular off the ocean's point in front of the hotel. The rollers often
break just right for a long surfboard ride.
"La Cueva del Pirata Hotel" [Pirate's Cave Hotel] is in Camalu, Baja California. The hotel
is fabulous for a vacation. Calmness and serenity are my feelings here at this lovely place.
The hotel sits on a bluff above the Pacific Ocean at the north end of the Bay of San Ramon.

The upper floor in the picture above is under construction. Work in progress is typical
construction custom in Mexico. Construction takes much longer in Mexico than the USA. The
owners of the hotel are busy during the winter of 2004 putting in a swimming pool however.
This swimming pool is scheduled for completion before the summer of 2006.
The restaurant includes outdoor dining with a wonderful view of the ocean. Umbrellas over
the several tiled tables protect you from the sun. You see the waves rolling in, and hear
the soft sound of surf in the distance.

beef, steaks and chicken. All foods are expertly prepared by Chef Roberto.
The prices of all supper dishes are between $6US and $16US. The Pirata's menu prices are
an excellent bargain, in my opinion.
