Playa Principal (Barra de Navidad)

U sually called just "Barra," this laid-back little town has sandy streets and a live-and-let-live demeanor. At any time but high tide you can walk between San Patricio and Barra, a distance of about 5 km (3½ mi). It's about 4½ km (3 mi) on the highway from one town to the other. Most of Barra is composed of two streets on a long sandbar. Calle Veracruz faces the vast lagoon and Isla Navidad, now home to the posh Gran Bay resort. Water taxis take folks to the Gran Bay's golf course or marina, or to the seafood restaurants of Colimilla, on the lagoon's opposite shore. Avenida Miguel de Legazpi faces Barra's sloping brown-sand beach and the ocean. These and connecting streets have small shops, simple but charming restaurants, and—like everywhere along Mexico's Pacific coast—a host of friendly townspeople. Surfers look for swells near the jetty, where the sea enters the lagoon.Facilities: Boating, fishing; food concessions. Best for: swimming; partiers; sunset.
