Have visited twice from Manzanillo. Would like to stay for an extended time in Barra.

Go back to the 60's & 70's - they are here. Great off-the-beaten-path location. Neat boutiques & great seafood. There is a craft market with super buys. Ocean front or inlet... read more

Go back to the 60's & 70's - they are here. Great off-the-beaten-path location. Neat boutiques & great seafood. There is a craft market with super buys. Ocean front or inlet views, inexpensive accommodation. Don't spread the word!

Knowing that the Spanish, conquistadors, built their first ships to sail to Philippines from there. Also the beautiful coast and relaxing atmosphere.

Very walk-able and friendly. Small streets and super hospitable people. We ordered a beer at a small street side restaurant and they said, yes, okay, no problem and then they promptly walked down the street to a small store and bought us cold beer and brought it back to us. Wonderful people in Barra.

It was a great day trip and we loved the shopping, the bay, the beach and the food. I recommend it if you need a break from your hotel resort days. Not too far 1 hour or so. Worth it!

Quaint little town with a market on Thursday. Lots of little shops and bars. We took a free water taxi to Mary's Restaurant. |It's a great seafood restaurant on an island. Well worth the trip. Our excursion with Sunwing to Barre Navidad also included a plantation tour, which was very interesting with stops at a banana plantation growing not only... More

We love going to this quaint village to shop and have lunch. A must if you are in Manzanillo. It is a short distance from our Villa Parasio in Manzanillo.

One of my favourites places to take my guests for a leisurely walking tour and good food at Restaurant Veleros by the water. Melaque is 10 away and also worth visiting. You can take a boat/taxi ride to the Grand Bay Hotel across the inlet/lagune but as we were a large group of 8, it was cheaper to drive around... More

We spent a week in Barra arriving home last Saturday. It was our first visit there, and we'll be going back. Clean beach, friendly people and reasonable costs are all factors. If you're looking for an all inclusive resort, this isn't your place. If you want a unique Mexican experience, check it our. The town is clean compared to many,... More
