It's worth staying at casa Ulrich just for the food! The rooms here are comfortable with private bathroom but the main reason i have rated this place excellent is because of the owner Mr Fred who is one of the nicest and most helpful people I've met on my travels and is an amazing chef. There are limited places to eat here and we tried a few other places in Pearl Lagoon but nothing could compare to Fred's cooking along with his friendly nature and advice. I ate the biggest and best lobster I've ever had at a price so cheap compared to back home, I'd also highly recommend the shrimp pasta and the breakfast. Fred has had a very interesting life and was happy to share with us stories of his travels and the history of his time in Nicaragua, which gave us a good insight into life out there. Fred also spend an afternoon trying to help us with some transport challenges so we could get to el Rama in time for the 9am express bus, there seemed to be no taxis as very few people have cars or those who did seemed to be waiting for the mechanic from blue fields to come and fix it, he hooked us up with a local minivan driver who gave us a very reasonable price for the 4 hour journey on a dirt road to el Rama, we would never have found this without Mr Fred.
