Zihua-Barra de Potosi :Casa Paz
Barra de Potosi, Mexican Riviera-Pacific Coast, Mexico
Additional Location Information
A protected bay with a very long beach (8 miles) is ideal for running or walking. At one end there is a large lagoon with a large variety of birds and one can kayak or take a boat ride through the mangroves. It is also a fisherman’s paradise: from the shore, in the lagoon, or further at sea. Snorkeling, swimming and sea kayaking are other favorite pastimes. The house is located a short distance from the beach restaurants and the lagoon and a walk to the village of Barra de Potosi is only a few minutes away.The Barra (sand bar) is at the mouth of a huge lagoon with a large variety of birds where one can canoe or kayak through the mangroves and watch the birds: frigates, pelicans, egrets, herons, cormorants, and roseate spoonbills among others. A birder's delight .
But the best thing about Barra De Potosi is its people; the villagers themselves, living a traditional life based on fishing and tourism, a small-scale tourism that fits with the environmental vision of the inhabitants who are in the process of having the area declared, “protected ecological zone” by the Federal Government. A number of restaurants at the mouth of the lagoon offer the usual sea fare, fresh fruits and cerveza muy fria. They close at dusk but you can have tacos in the village later on.
It is also a fisherman’s paradise: from the shore, in the lagoon, further at sea and the catch varies: tuna, mahi mahi, red snappers, crabs.
Sailing and sea kayaking are some of the other sports practiced in the bay.The sunsets are spectacular,of course, and made more interesting by the birds flying across the bay at dusk.
The Barra de Potosi animal refuge center, "El Refugio", is a couple miles down the road and well worth the visit for children and adults alike : exotic birds ,iguanas ,butterflies,and snakes ,are on display. Some of the animals are there to recover from illness or injuries ,others are permanent residents.
