Pearl Lagoon is in RAAS.

Understand[edit]

Pearl Lagoon is a quaint town of about 5,000 people, mostly English-speaking creole descent. There are also a large number of Miskito indians that populate the town as well.

Get in[edit]

There are two routes: 1. Road from El Rama. There is a bus that leaves once a day and takes about 4 hours to reach.

2. Panga from Bluefields. This boat leaves at 9am, 12pm and 4pm and costs about $7.

Get around[edit]

Walking walking walking. The town is small and nearly everybody walks to get anywhere. There are also moto taxis that can be taken to the neighboring villages of Haulover, Raitipura and Awas.

See[edit][add listing]

You will see the remains of a British war cannon in the center of the wharf.

Do[edit][add listing]

Dining or drinking over the water is one of the best things to do in the town. The real attractions are the neighboring communities of Kahkabila, La Fe, the Kahka Creek reserve, Orinoco, Tasbapouni and the Pearl Cays. Pearl Lagoon is the best jump-off point for all of them.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Seafood is cheap! Lobster can be found for $4 if you know where to look.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Casa Ulrich has excellent dining, Queen Lobster as well. There is Comedor Eva that cooks up some of the best value in the town and Casa Blanca cooks excellent local-style meals.

Drink[edit][add listing]

There are three bars in a row just behind the basketball court. That is where the party usually is on a weekend.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

There are several hotels. For the best views check out the hotels/bars/restaurants at Casa Ulrichand Queen Lobster on the waterside. Both serve excellent food right where you can watch the dugout sailing dories come and go. The well-known Green Lodge is a beautifully manicured and private hotel just steps from the wharf. Further down is Casa Blanca, Slilma's Place and Comfort Zone.

Contact[edit]

Get out[edit]

Just like getting in...one bus that leaves once a day to El Rama and 3 pangas to Bluefields at 6am, 7am and 1pm.
