Parking is almost always difficult especially in the center of the shopping district.. Excellent place to buy souvenirs and special gifts. The Oaxaca stores... More

Barra is a small town with basically one main street which has restaurants and tourist shops. It's fun for a day. There are a few nice, little hotels right on the ocean.

Enjoyed the ease of walking the town. Lots of shops and restaurants. Boat tours from the Marina. My favorite restaurant here called Sea Master. Take the table over the water. Delightful.

everyone loves Barra because of its little town feel and atmosphere. I highly recommend it to then go to the Isla Navidad and eat, then come back to Barra to the Malecon to watch the sunset.

This small village brings surfers, old hippies and tourists with lots of character. Fun for easy going travelers who like the sun, as it is always warm/hot.

We had the all inclusive golf package which was wonderful, there is a mandatory cart and caddie rule, and unknown to us we had to pay the caddies directly ($40). Having never had a... More

We were only able to spend a couple of hours here but fell in love with the quaint village and friendly people. We had hoped to return and spend more time there but it didn't work out but we would definitely stay here in future. We met some other Canadians who stayed there for a month and really liked it...

Take the bus for 38 pesos each way and give yourself a few hours. Stopped at a few bars on the ocean and view was great.
