Tropical Golf in San Pancho


Yes it’s true….. You can golf on a very beautiful course in

San Pancho

Las Huertas Gold and Beach Club. It was been a private course for a few years, but the years have produced a lush tropical paradise golf course. I am, or you could say I was a golfer in the states over the years and loved the game. I really love being surrounded by beautiful grass and trees and water and of course sand traps. I was invited by a couple staying at Roberto’s Bungalows here in San Pancho. It is almost like you have been swept away to a tropical Island golf paradise. I believe the cost is $40 american dollars and 11.50 for a cart. I will be on the course a lot more, so come on down or up and let’s do it!

It’s like the course is all yours!
From a few holes you can see the ocean
challenging shots


Beautiful fountains, and landscaping


San Pancho Piña is my name

They changed my name. I'm now Pineapple Boy!

They changed my name.

When I got here to San Pancho, Mexico fulltime three years ago I noticed that when I would introduce myself the locals from here would look at me funny. Well after a while I realized they were having a rough time with my name. When they would try to say my name Earl would come out EAAHHH and I decided to look for a change of name. I thought of changing it to Earaldo, because I met a man in town named Earl and he changed his to Earaldo. I thought  about it and i decided not to do it, because I didn’t like the way it sounded.
Well most of you know I wear Hawaiian shirts everyday and have for about 20 years. Many of my shirts have pineapples on them and some of the locals noticed, so a few started calling me Piña  and I liked it and it stuck and I have gotten real comfortable with it.  It seems that most of the locals will tell you what your name has been changed to. I guess if it’s a bad name they keep it amongst themselves and whisper it to each other and laugh. Gringos do seem to  get a nickname after they have been here for a while. My Brother in law is gran bigote which is large mustache and he does have a huge mustache.
It is really kind of an honor to pick up a new name in our new Country. When I go down the main street in the village I hear the young dudes yell out…..Hey Piña!! It makes me feel really great……Come on down to Mexico and stay a while and let us help you with your new nickname……Your going to love it! See you here at Riviera Nayarit, Mexico #sanpancho,
