Nice ambiance and inviting atmosphere if you would like to have great conversations or just chill on the porch and soak in the culture. Always a pinata of variety happening and the owner has a bucket full of knowledge to pass on.

Gringos Locos is a locally-owned bar, located in one of Lake Atitlan's more formidable tourist traps, and our name pretends to capture our mixed feelings about the multi-cultural aspect of our niche here in Pana.
