We spent the next two weeks exploring Barra de Navidad and the neighboring towns of Melaque and Colima. There is a special energy in this area that we loved. We spent time lounging around the beautiful pools on the grounds, eating at the many restaurants in Barra, shopping at the street markets, listening to some fantastic live music and meeting amazing people. We rode the water taxi from “la marina” into Barra. On our trips to Melaque (for groceries and parts) we rode the water taxi then the bus. These buses were most likely antiques long since retired from the states.
We were treated each morning with pastries and breads from the French Baker that motored his boat right up to ours. This was a delicious morning treat!
On our last night here, we enjoyed the Super Bowl at a local cantina with many of our new cruising friends while whales played and spouted in the bay right outside.
Leaving will be hard, but we know that one day we will be back to Barra de Navidad.
