Beautiful Resort at Barra de Navidad
27 February 2019
Scott and Donna Hansen
We had friends on Molly J, Lisa and John, staying at Barra so I definitely wanted to make this stop. The resort is unbelievable with it's 4 pools, beautiful gardens, and fresh fruit water being served while you use Wi-Fi in their lounge. You have to take a water taxi to get into town but at $$30 pesos a round trip, it is quick and easy, just keep your ticket ready for the return trip. There is an anchorage further in from Barra, but it is shallow, so we chose just to be in the marina and enjoy our friends. They have laundry service right on the grounds so super convenient, just a little pricey. There are different walks along the beaches and around the golf course. Unfortunately, we chose a walk that we thought would get us out to the point you pass as you sail in but instead, we were thick in folage and TONS of mosquitoes so we quickly went back. A huge group of cyclists came riding down beside us.
One night, the yachties got permission to gather and have a potluck, so that was fun to get to know your neighbors better. We got to play water volleyball, ping pong and enjoy noon water exercises, so it was hard to leave at the end of our time.
