Caribbean Lobster Lunches on Big Corn Island


Good day,

I’m outta here soon and quite excited about it. I do love it here but change is the spice of life and I’m ready to burn my internals, so to speak. One thing I love about living in the Caribbean and doing what I do in these parts is the cheap seafood. Often times, I’ll spend the whole day on my comptuer doing stuff and when I close my door, I could be anywhere in the world but it’s when you walk out that door that makes all the difference in the world…

Around the corner from my “office” if you want to call it that is a place called Jeanettes and I love it. It’s my breakfast spot without fail and yesterday a lady I met asked if I wanted to join her for a lobster lunch. Naturally, I said sure and it was delicious. I want you to take a good look at that photo… I’m just thinking of where I used to live and what was available in the $8 range; all I can think of is a foot long sub from Subway which is not in the same league.

Pros and cons to every lifestyle in every location; this is one of the pros of living in the Caribbean.

I’m out of here on Monday and heading to Granada few days before returning to Managua and catching a flight to London via Miami. I think that’s the plan but I’m not holding any tickets besides one from Malta to Frankfurt on the 14th of April so time will tell, yes?

Tips hat,

    I’m sitting here fighting what appears to be Dengue and thinking I’m living in the wrong Central American country. I’ve yet to see this kind of deliciousness here — I’ve never seen fresh shellfish in San Pedro or Tegucigalpa and at the coast, the national dish of deep fried whole fish is not what I’m craving. What’s in your shot would be perfect!

    Maybe a getaway to Nicaraugua should be on my calendar. Have fun and I’m looking forward to what’s next.

    Buen viaje, Rob!

      Hi Fran!

      I hope you’re feeling better; Dengue sounds like quite the drag.

      You must come visit eventually and vice-versa. I might be working my way up from Nicaragua towards Canada this summer;l if so a stop is in order.

      Feel better and enjoy some fish until the lobster lunch!
