Robertos’s Bungalows previous owners Earl and Jane Miller now have two new rentals


Robertos’s Bungalows was one of the best places to stay in San Pancho. The owners Jane and Earl sold to some awesome people Mara and Juan from Guatalajara.

They have remodeled the Bungalows and it is beautiful and we have built a new home and two large rentals.

We took everything we learned from 14 years of running the Bungalows and now believe we have two of the best rentals in San Pancho. Beautiful views and awesome suites. Come visit us and kick back by the pool and enjoy life the way it should be lived.

Animal Woman


Animal Woman

So you’ve heard of Wonder Woman, Super Woman, Cat Women, Bat Woman, Spider Woman, Invisible Woman, but right here in San Pancho we have Animal Woman!

Well let me introduce you to San Pancho’s own Animal Woman. Many folks call her the turtle lady. Which is what she is known as here in the village. I believe we should call her Animal Woman, because she loves animals.

    This beautiful woman cares about every single living thing that is not human. I know she likes humans, but she likes animals much more. What she has focused on for the last 10 years here in the Jungle besides turtles is all living bugs, snakes, butterflies birds, whales, cats, dogs, bees, raccoons, spiders, crabs and anything else that breathes. 

    We met a long time ago and if you are lucky enough to meet her you realize that her whole world evolves around taking care of animals that are broken and those who have lost their families. 

    Today we stopped by the turtle sanctuary here in San Pancho to see if she knew what to do with a big nest of bees. We explained what the nest looked like and the kind of bees that were hanging out. She said don’t disturb them, as they are very necessary for our area. She said go home and we will be there soon. 

    She came by our home to gather up the bees nest that has been getting larger by the day and tons of bees. She and her friends successfully removed the nest and all the bees and brought them to their new home. (Anywhere but my house is good) Before I met her I would have sprayed them with Raid and then chopped down the nest and killed them all. I have changed, because of her. While she was here to get the bees she was walking by the pool and bent down and scooped up a little moth and she blew its wings dry and set it down in the sun and a few minutes later it flew away. Now I have started looking for bugs and moths that have landed in the pool. After drying them in the sun many of them fly away. 

    Last week I was driving by her on the road out to the jungle with a friend and she waved us to stop. She asked if we could do her a favor and as always I said maybe. I believe it’s not a good idea to say yes without finding out what the favor is, because I’ve had some pretty strange favors asked of me. She says will you take this snake and release it out in the jungle? Then she hands me a big jar with a towel draped over it. I look in the jar and there is a very pretty little snake (I don’t like snakes) and she says keep the towel over the jar, because the snake is really stressed out. She said please take it to the jungle and release it to its new home. 

    We drive off with the snake and release him or her into the wild. If anyone in the village has an animal that needs help she is the one they call. 

She is one of a kind and the whole village loves her! Animal Woman!

Louder Barkers in Mexico?


The question I ask you is…

Do Mexican dogs bark louder than American Dogs because they can?

When we first got here to Riviera Nayarit MEXICO 15 Years ago I noticed a real large mangy dog population everywhere roaming the streets in all the villages along the ocean up the coast from Puerto Vallarta.

Most of the dogs looked pretty much the same, small white and about a foot and a half tall that had turned brown and black from the sandy dusty streets. It seems as though someone came and dropped off about three to four dozen of the same looking dogs to each village up the coast then left.

A lot of Dogs here sleep in the streets and will not move when you drive down the streets in your car. I think it’s, because the dogs party all night staying awake barking and running all over town and down to the beach and by morning they are really tired. Mornings are kinda quiet most of the time. At the beach they act just like the tourists, as they are everywhere playing, running and swimming and just having a blast.

I kind of like the idea of a free for all dog World. We came from such an uptight dog world in the U.S. It is so much different here than in the states. I’m sure the U.S. will soon pass new laws where you will have to have your dog on a leash even in your own home. Now that I have been here for a bunch of years things have changed. The dogs still run wild and it seems as though each and everyone in the village joined in and adopted one or got one or two new breeds of dogs for themselves, but I will say it seems that almost every dog has an owner.

If they pass a law here like in the states about every dog needs to be on a leash…..I’m going to open a leash store here in Mexico and get rich. Lately our neighborhood has started to look like a summer spa retreat for dogs of every breed, as there are people walking dogs everywhere. They are really not bothering anyone, but me. I can’t help it I have to tell the truth I just get a little (no a lot) irritated with all the barking.

We got ourselves a bark fest day and night. I’m really not sure what they bark about, but they must be having fun. I actually think they know it irritates me.

We have a little tiny dog a few doors down that doesn’t know she’s little. Every time a dog walks by she loses her mind. Then with her little squeaky bark all hell breaks loose, as she is having the time of her life.

One day I walked over to my neighbors a few houses down and I saw a couple dogs standing on their back legs barking into megaphones pointed right at me. Maybe it’s time for U.S. laws to start coming down here on the coast of Mexico.

No -No – No——-Not on your life….just going to go with the flow. I’m just going to imagine it as real loud bad disco music.

Love me a bunch of happy Mexican dogs.
