Not really a huge hot spot for TA travellers. How about the TomZap forum? Either forum might give you answers to specific questions.

There will be lots of gringos in Barra when you arrive -- probably about 1,000 scattered throughout or living in Barra. Typically they are long term visitors and not one week or two week vacationers and so, they have little inclination to participate on a TA forum.

just returned today. 2 weeks 30c almost every day. We were first time Mexico travelers, so a bit in the dark to begin with but Barra is safe for anyone to walk around, we encountered only friendly smiling locals and tons of canucks. Walking around the main town you will find many restaurants and merchants. We did not find lousy food. The beach is deserted but beautiful. The surf can be larger but i found it easy to enter and exit except in the biggest waves.....just keep your eyes on the ocean. All the restaurants listed on trip advisor were fine but Ramones seemed to be missing and we had good meals there. Marlena's was very good , we had the goulash and the schnitzel. Definitely take the local bus to Melaque, the next town over.

Pedestrians have no right of way so keep your eyes open and watch for the uneven pavement.....we saw plenty of tripped up visitors. Pretty good music in coco's when Mario is playing...a really excellent Latino guitarist. Really good. I would just say wander around, it is easy to find anything there or in melaque. Barra was great.
