A good friend, Bob Stacklie, told us not to miss Barra Navidad, so we took his advice.
We were not disappointed. It is a small marina with a very nice hotel located on the hill above it, and the town was a short water taxi ride across a lagoon.
Like every place we have been so far, there were not many gringos here. Barra Navidad is where the rich nationals go to vacation.
We lost a crew member, so it was down to me and Jenn until Cabo.
We got a lousy forecast, so we ended up spending two nights here.
We spent most of our time across the lagoon at the town, drinking margaritas and walking around.
There is a church in town with a famous story. A few years back there was a hurricane and the church in the middle of town was packed. Right before the water got to the church, the story is that Jesus on the cross lowered his arms and the water receded. When we went to the church we saw the lowered arms (photo), so it must be true.
Barra Navidad was a great place to wait out the weather and spend a couple of days.
