Travel Blogs from Barra de Navidad
We decided to take a break from the routine and head to the beach. After doing our research we decided on the little fishing village of Barra de Navidad which is about 100 miles south of Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific coast. It was over a 4 hour drive on the Cuota (toll roads) through Colima and out to the coast. The village is located on the same …
... river where Kingfishers were swooping over the water and there were wonderful views of the limestone mountains.This is by far the best cave we have seen so far, a lovely experience to go through the caves by boat – some parts of it were as high as cathedral roofs and others not far above ourheads – truly spectacular. At the end there was a mint green lagoon of water to swim in and a lovely white sand beach to relax on.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Alondra Barra de Navidad
The hotel La Alondra was our second choice not realizing how humid the city would be this time of year. Our first choice didn't have air conditioning. The A/C was much appreciated after a day on the beach with son and wind. Staff was extremely pleasant and Jose at the Aquabar made great Margritas and Pina Colladas! Rooms were spotless the pool and beach access the best! There seemed to be quite a bit of beach erosion which was concerning. Hope they can get that stable.
