Barra de Navidad Mexico
Barra Navidad is a quaint fishing village located on the Costa Alegre in Jalisco and offers beautiful unspoilt beaches and very warm and friendly people. It was a shipyard at the time of Spanish conquest and the early Spanish exploration to the South Sea.
Today the city is dedicated to tourism and fishing, in the area you can fish and shellfish and molluscs, prawns, golden fish and sailfish.
Besides from enjoying the town (which is very quiet and picturesque) and the sea, can also practice some surfing, water skiing and diving. The place has a variety of hotels, shops and good restaurants.
In front of Barra Navidad is the Christmas Island resort located on the border with the state of Jalisco, an hour and a half drive from Manzanillo. Here is housed a beautiful hotel with golf course facing the sea. There is a lagoon surrounded by coral reefs and a small marina so you can see yachts and small boats by the area.
This island was discovered by the Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza in the year 1541 on December 25, Christmas Day, you can imagine by the name.
Barra Navidad is located approximately 200 km south of Puerto Vallarta, near Manzanillo, Colima. And I highly recommend it because from here you also have the advantage to visit other beaches nearby that probably will have heard ... as Tenacatita, Boca iguanas, Melaque, etc, all part of the beautiful Costa Alegre of Jalisco which comprises 5 bays, Bahia de Navidad, Bahia Tenacatita, Costa Careyes, Chamela Bay and Costa Majahuas, all with their respective beaches many of them almost Unspoilt , where I assure you will live unforgettable moments.
look the map which is on the same page will be useful.
As a special favor to remember not littering and if you see trash on the beaches of Barra please collect it as far as possible, we have to try to keep this place like it is and even better so we can keep enjoying it every time we go so stays intact for generations to come.
And if you're thinking seriously of going there,I leave you a list of hotels that I found click on the link to view more details and you can choose the best option.
Now go and look for bathing suit and sandals!, You will need plenty of sunscreen and a strong desire to have fun, do not forget to check your car well before you leave .
