Barra de Navidad is located on the Costa Alegre midway between Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta. It's a picturesque, friendly little fishing town built on a sandbar that extends into the Bahia de Navidad. For swimming and water sports, you can choose between the calm waters of the lagoon, the beach on the bay, or one of the spectacular neighboring beaches. At the far end of the Bahia de Navidad is the bustling town Melaque. Barra is a 25 minute drive from Manzanillo International Airport, two hours from Colima and 3 hours by ETN or Primera Plus Bus lines from Puerto Vallarta.
Many of the cobblestone streets are open to pedestrians only and the town is easily explored on foot. Across the bay, accessible by road or water-taxi, on Isla de Navidad, is the 5 star Grand Bay Hotel, with a marina and a world class golf course. Barra abounds in good restaurants, great sport fishing, excursions, and a wide variety of water sports including surfing. We have breathtaking sunsets, a tremendous variety of birds and we are blessed with warm, delightful people and amazing weather.

British Columbia, Canada is where we call home. For some time now we've found Mexico to be an ideal vacation get away. After visiting Barra it was clear this on of the best vacation spots in Mexico!
Barra is close to the airport yet it does not have the crowds some of the other vacation cities in Mexico.
There is a large number of restaurants. The 3 km beach is amazing and the local residents are friendly.
The weather always seems to be ideal and the people are some of the friendliest people we have met. There are many inexpensive restaurants with delicious food. Our property is one block away from a small local grocery store where we buy our bread, vegetable, vegetables and eggs. We buy our bacon, chicken and meat at the local butcher two blocks away?
