Movers and Shakers
At a “standing room only” February 11 town hall meeting, engineer Francisco Alvarez of Uretek gave a PowerPoint presentation about the ongoing Barra de Navidad beach renovation project.
A wealth of experience gathered Wednesday January 22nd, 9 a.m. as it does all year round, at the Cabo Blanco Hotel in the heart of Barra de Navidad. Teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, parents and partners filled the seats of the Costalegre Rotary Club breakfast meeting. The invisible bond connecting those present was a sincere concern for the Family of Man.
Festival Del Mar
The five-day Festival del Mar Melaque Costalegre from December 10-14 was described by municipal tourism director and organizer Francisco Carrillo Torres as “the foundation of much bigger things to come.”
Journeyman drummer Ian Hoffman moved to Barra de Navidad five years ago after traveling extensively throughout Mexico. He says he is “amazed and excited” by all the talented musicians who now play in the area, including many students from the Instituto Universitario de Bellas Artes de Colima.

We’ll start with a few popular and friendly locales that feature good music, food, cold cerveza or a mojito cocktail or two.
