Fishing Charters in Barra de Navidad


You can hire a small boat for a coastal ride or fishing in two ways. On Calle Veracruz near the Malecon, you will find many Boat Tour Companies. The water taxi is the best option for going to Colimilla (5 min.) , across the lagoon (3 min.) to the Grand Isla Navidad Hotel, or just back and forth from Cabo Blanco to downtown. Water taxis make the rounds regularly, so just wait, and one will be along shortly. At the cooperative, you can also book a 30-minute lagoon tour, or choose from many of the other longer tours available. Keep an eye out for the Floating French Bakery - delivering goodies on the water!
