Please join us at El Velero Hotel on January 27, 2024 from 12-4pm for a memorial celebration for our good friend Mike Tesluk. We want to take a moment to reflect on Big Mike’s life and share all the memories that you have from over the years. It should be as great a time as when Mike and the El Velero were in full party mode back in the day. Hope to see everyone there to spread some love!
RIP Big Mike Tesluk
Sad news from paradise. Big Mike Tesluk passed away October 27 2023. Mike was an Iconic part of this community and a fixture from the early days in Playa Hermosa, known as the Wild West. He was part madman, part Teddy Bear, but was as loyal as a dog. If you were lucky enough to be his friend, you knew that he would take a bullet or lie in front of a train for you. My best memories from my very beginnings here in the land of Pura Vida, involved sitting with Mike, drinking vodka, and watching the sunset. I can honestly say that I would never have been as successful as I have become without his support. The guidance and encouragement he gave me along with the introductions that he made; I will never forget. His laugh was classic, and his energy filled the room. Everyone who had ever met him, came away knowing that they had crossed the path of a one-of-a-kind human being. He was not only a friend, but he was my brother. I love you Mike, and I will miss you more than I could ever put into words. Thank you for being such a huge part of my life, for the last 24 years. RIP pal. Enjoy the Big Harley Davidson Rally in the sky.
Your friend always.
