Barra de Navidad

I was a bit iffy on this stop as the guidebook did not praise this spot very highly. It was on the way and we needed rest after travelling through the night. We arrived at the crack of dawn and entered the port. Isabel was up and gave us a slip assignment. As part of this slip assignment we had full access to the amenities including the hotel pool.


What a pool! Swim up bar, water slides and lounging by the pool in the 90 degree weather.




The pool with the swim up bar saw a lot of use by us and the waterslides were great. There were not a ton of people at the resort, We really had the place to ourselves. The staff was fun and friendly and relaxing after an all night cruise was very nice.


Later in the afternoon. we took a water taxi to the town. We had drinks at an outdoor restaurant with a beautiful view.




Then we walked the town




We had dinner at Bob's Tree house (on the right of the picture) where the food and atmosphere was terrific.


The Malecon was a fun walk after dinner.






After all of that, we headed home on the water taxi and used the shore power to run the air conditioning all night and had blissful sleep. I wished we had more than one to stay here, but we were headed south and had to keep moving.
