Have you ever seen the “Green Flash”?

For most of my life, I thought it was sort of like going on a snipe hunt, it was a put-on, a joke on the believing.  But then, I saw not one, but two, both within a week.  Look for it on a relatively clear evening, just when the sun sinks below the horizon.  It is rare, but it does occur.  Honest.

Another Unforgettable Bahia Summer Ends!

What a summer, the summer of 2015!  The fishing was great, capped off by another really, really good Dorado run that started in early August, and is still going on.  The hotel was busier than it had been in years, and we opened our restaurant, “The Dancing Dolphin,” to very good response by the guests.  We received nothing but good reviews from our departing guests. 

Salvador Juarez took over the running of the hotel in May, and immediately began making improvements and adding things to the hotel.  We are going into a great fall season, one of the best times of the year.  The whale sharks have been in the bay since mid-May, and if history repeats, will be here well into November.  Carlos Slim, the world’s richest man bought the airport and has plans for developing and improving it.  It has been a good year for Bahia in general, and for Hotel Villa Bahia in particular.  Thanks to you all for your support!
