Barra de Navidad, on the Costa Alegre, midway between Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta, is 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 neighbouring beaches. At the far end of the Bahia de Navidad is the bustling town Melaque. Barra is a 20 minute drive from Manzanillo International Airport, two hours from Colima and 3 hours from Puerto Vallarta.
Many of the cobblestone streets are open to pedestrians only and the village is easily explored on foot. Across the bay, accessible by road or water-taxi, in Isla de Navidad, is the 5 star Grand Hotel, with marina and a world class golf course.

Why the Owner Chose Barra de Navidad: On our very first visit to Barra we were completely smitten. The location, the sun, the sea, the relative social stability, the delightful people, the enchanting village, the energy and the hospitality were overwhelming. Within three days we bought our wonderful casa and we have not regretted that impulsive decision for a moment since.
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of the marvellous aspects of spending time in Barra is the many alternatives which are possible. You can stay put.... totally... hang around the pool, shop in the barrio, eat at home, play pool, listen to music or you can explore the village and immediate surroundings; Melaque, La Manzanilla,La Colimilla, lunch at the Grand Bay, golf, fishing or water sports. For those curious folks who can stay longer, we are two hours from the wonderful, colonial town of Colima, four hours from Ajijic and Guadalajara, the artisanat center of Mexico, and La Ticla, some of the best surfing on the coast. Bustling Puerto Vallarta is only three hours north along the coast with marvellous beaches and exclusive hotels along the way.
