Tropical Musings from Paradise January 2021 Edition

Posted by AdminGalvan on January 13, 2021

Greetings from Paradise and Happy New Year 2021!

As I sit here today writing and putting together this monthly Newsletter, I am reminded that I do live in one of the most beautiful places in the word.

It’s not just the ocean and foliage that are beautiful, so are the people and the culture.

I look forward to seeing you return to Paradise when the time is right.

El Vinatero News

El Vinatero, the Beer and Wine Bar in Lo de Marcos surprised us in December when they announced Special Meals on Saturdays. The meals are prepared by Chef Jennifer Wilson Scott and each weekly offering has been unique and excellent. Due to social distancing requirements, advance reservations are recommended.

Facebook Hack

On December 16th, our main Facebook Business Page for Galvan Real Estate and Services was breached by someone else and then all of our Administrators where stripped of access rights to our page. We were HACKED!

This has been reported repeatedly to Facebook with no replies on their part. As of today we still have not been able to re gain access to our page or the control of it.

If any of you have contacts at Facebook please share them with us or make a plea for assistance on our behalf.

I hope we are able to get the page back that it took 7 years to create and build.

Until then, here is our local Lo de Marcos Community Page that you can follow to keep in touch

Cooking with Armando

Over the past few months, I have taken more of an active interest in cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Here is one that has quickly become one of my go to recipes.


I increase the garlic from 4 to 8 cloves and also increase the butter from 2 to 4 tablespoons.

This recipe is perfect for a Sunday meal!
