Welcome to La Cueva del Pirata Restaurant at Castillo de San Felipe
La Cueva del Pirata (The Pirate’s Cave) is located at the historic Castillo de San Felipe. The restaurant provides a casual environment serving high quality seafood, pizza, as well as many other dishes!
Located just a few minutes from the town of Río Dulce by boat, La Cueva del Pirata is situated on the water between the Rio Dulce and Lake Izabal.
The restaurant’s unique setting on a national park allows diners to choose from a wide array of foods before taking in the sights at the castle – a Guatemalan National Park.
All profits go to support Asociación Ak’ Tenamit, a locally-owned and operated social development organization. The restaurant staff – all students-in-training from Ak’ Tenamit’s vocational high school – graduates with a degree in sustainable tourism. Upon graduation, these empowered young people take their newly acquired skills back to the villages from which they came to help support their families and communities.
About the Castle:
At the Castle visitors can take a tour of the site, learning the rich history dating back to the sixteenth century. Demanded by the Spanish kingdom to protect its wealth in the region, the tour tells the story of piracy and sacking.
