This historic hotel is located at the Southern tip of Third Street in a majestic antique wooden building. It has already celebrated its hundredth anniversary and is still standing firm despite the ravages of time and the destructive earthquakes of 1917 and 1991. Built in 1905, it is considered one of the oldest buildings in the area.

The building has quite the history, having housed the main offices of the United Fruit Company, three consulates and the Tropical Radio & Telegraph Company. Since 1968 it is now home to the Gran Hotel Bahía, which has undergone a complete makeover including remodeling of all it's rooms, without loosing the enchantment of the old days.

In the lobby you can observe a very old and huge safe, which was installed in 1905 while the construction of the building was still going. This safe that survived the fire of 1904, was used to keep away the money to pay the suppliers and small banana farmers in the area.
