sos4uallThe Rusty Anchor Bar & Grill and El Cañonero Hotel are managed and operated by John McMahan. John is an American originally from Indiana. He first came to the Philippines in 1978 while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. After a tour with the Marines, he became a career fireman and EMT in Tempe, Arizona for 30 years. When he retired from fire fighting, John bought a sail boat and sailed around the world, ending up in (you guessed it) Puerto Galera where he plans to stay permanently. As he says “I love the Philippines” and “I am living the dream”. John’s handle on our blog is “sos4uall”. He cares deeply for his family, friends and employees and genuinely wants people to have fun and be happy.

The Rusty Anchor Bar & Grill and El Cañonero Hotel are managed and operated by John McMahan.

El Cañonero Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Puerto Galera. It is located next to the historic Spanish cross and cannons in Muelle Port. Although it does not have a sandy  beach front or fancy swimming pool, it is has the best view of Muelle Bay and most all the activities on Muelle Pier. El Cañonero Hotel is also very near Coral garden, where  the famous breeding ground for giant clams are an ideal place for snorkeling. Going to any of Puerto Galera’s fine beaches is very easy as the bancas and tricycles are conveniently located just a few steps from the hotel.

        Well, I can still do most of the acrobats…maybe not as pretty as it use to be but, hey, I’m 52! My husband Randy will till you I still have the mouth for it! Hahaha! I have a business associate that lives in the Phills and have put the word out about your restaurant. His name is Bobby and he is an ex-marine as well. He is about a 100 miles away but you never know. I told him to look you up if he gets in the area. Personally, I want one of those mangos in the pic! Have a great day!
