|The Gringo Bar
On the eastern outskirts of coastal Trujillo, past
the Hotel Christopher
Columbus, just off the runway, next to the Bahia Bar, lies the
attractive Gringo Bar. This is the 'Expat' - transplanted
and retired gringos - watering hole. At almost any time
of the day you can drop by here and pick up some of the
most juicy - if not somewhat fanciful - Trujillo gossip
that you are liable to come across. Opinions and
philosophies are to be had here aplenty. Should this not
prove to be enough stimulation for you, there is always
the TV behind the bar which offers a continual stream of
American programs brought down by satellite.
in the cool shade of a palapa on the beach and
enjoy the ocean. Beaches on this stretch are daily
cleared of litter and the water is fairly clean. The
Gringo Bar has a complimentary shower stall for its
clients, if you want to wash the salt off after a swim.
Taxis come and go all the time from here, so you
can usually get a ride back into town. The occasional
mobile customer will usually give you a ride into town as
well, but if you have to, it's only a fifteen minute walk
to the center of Trujillo.
