COLIMILLA

The little village of Colimilla (also know as La Culebra) is located in the Municipal of Manzanillo in the state of Colima.  It is directly across the lagoon from Barra de Navidad (Barra is in the state of Jalisco). Colimilla has a thatched-roof church and only about 300 permanent residents.  It is overshadowed by the Grand Bay hotel and marina complex.  Colimilla is widely known for suburb dinning experiences at the half dozen lagoon-side restaurants there.  Directions

THINGS TO DO

If you come early, you can walk the path across the Isla de Navidad peninsula to Playa de los Cocos to go beachcombing.  This beach is normally to rough for swimming.

HOW TO GET HERE

Although you may drive to Colimilla, most people take a 5 minute watertaxi (Panga) across the Barra lagoon.  There are a number of ferry launches that leave from the Barra de Navidad lagoon-side docks on Avenida Veracruz (20 Pesos return). To drive here, head South from Barra/Jaluco junction about 10 kilometers, turning toward the water following the signs for Isla Navidad and the Grand bay hotel.  Note: Evenings are known for bugs, so take repellent if you’re staying for dinner.
