Having arrived at Los Muertos, we anchored in the cove by the Giggling Marlin. The winds were extremely light the entire day, but at about 10 PM it started getting windy. By 3 a.m. it was blowing 25 knots from the West, and this continued all night until dawn when the winds just stop and it's dead calm.
These annoying winds make for an uncomfortable night. It's hard to sleep soundly when you're wondering if the anchor is dragging or some other boat is dragging onto you. Fortunately the anchor held, we had put out a 5:1 scope of all chain.
We spent the second day at Los Muertos catching up on our sleep, the boys playing on the beach all day. In the afternoon Pascale and I decided to walk down the beach about a mile toward some distant structures. We could see thatched roofs and plam trees by the beach. As we got closer it became clear this was some kind of resort.
This turned out to be "Casa de los Suenos" (House of Dreams). We got a tour of the place by their scuba instructor Tom. It was built by a billionaire as part of a project to turn the area into a resort.
This place is extremely luxurious! I found their web site, check it out at
They have a restaurant called Casa Del Trens (House of Trains). The owner has a serious interest in model trains, and built this two story structure to house his million-dollar model train collection. It also serves as the restaurant for the resort development. We returned in the evening with the boys to have dinner there and let the boys admire the model train collection.
