A new restaurant on the rio is creating quite a buzz. Many cruisers have already checked it out and have given it a thumbs-up! The proprietor, Liesl Kirste, contacted the Rio Dulce Chisme Vindicator with details. The name of the property is “Dreamcatcher Eco Lodge,” and, as the name implies, it is also a small hostel with a dormitorio and tents.

Liesl managed a restaurant in Guatemala City. She also lived in various places around the world, and acquired diverse culinary skills. One such example is her infusion of squid, or cuttlefish, ink in her freshly made pastas. One cruiser sampled this dish, which is topped with a white wine sauce, and said it was scrumptious!

There are not a lot of options for non-fish-eating vegetarians, presently, but that may change in the future. On our visit, Liesel quickly put together some hummus to go with the home-made nachos and guacamole. For more information and photos, click "Read more..." below. Image

Dreamcatcher’s cell phone number is 4562-4946. Accessible only by water, Dreamcatcher is tucked in the jungle and offers a pleasing view while dining. From the bridge, go downriver to Monkey Bay Marina (15º39.954 N  88º59.494” W), on past Lubie’s Marina, to the creek (or bayou) near the blue barrels. You’ll come to the white building, starboard side, with the Dreamcatcher sign hanging over the dock out front. Be prepared to be met by a multitude of friendly dogs!
