San Pascual

Historic Site in Cayerías del Norte

One of the area's oldest and oddest curiosities is the San Pascual, a San Diego tanker built in 1920 that got wrecked in 1933 on the far side of Cayo Francés, just west of Cayo las Brujas. Later the ship was used to store molasses, and later still it was opened up as a rather surreal hotel-restaurant (now closed).

The journey out to see the ship is included in snorkeling excursions and sunset cruises.
