Okay, if you've read this
far, I guess you deserve to know the name of the wonderful little town
where all this takes place. Barra de Navidad has managed to remain an off-beaten-path
jewel for years, and we intend to keep it that way for as long as possible.
Barra De Navidad?
||The waves are just big enough
to be really fun, but small enough that ocean swimming is inviting and
Surfing is best in January
||Day after day of blue skies
and sunshine, gorgeous sunsets into the shimmering Pacific, mild evening
breezes, with temperatures ranging from 70 - 90 F. It doesn't get much
||Barra maintains its charm
as a small fishing village, but it is also a favorite weekend beach haunt
for wealthy Guadalajarans. (Great for practicing your Spanish.) Most hotels
and restaurants have one staff member who speaks English.
||Considering the fact that
the town is so small it offers all the modern conveniences. Bottled water,
cappuccino, international cuisine, medical services, fax, (e-mail requires
a long distance call to Guadalajara), several live music venues, and a
host of excellent Mexican restaurants. There is also world class fishing,
tennis, snorkeling, golf, and kayaking. November thru Dec. 18 is ideal
for those who truly seek a quiet retreat. Starting with the Christmas season,
right through to St. Patrick's day, there is a healthy live music scene.
If you want a party-town with the nightlife of Cancun or Puerto Vallarta
please go there!
||Barra de Navidad is 20 minutes
north of the Manzanillo airport, or a 3 1/2 hr. first class bus ride
south of Puerto Vallarta.
