The Hotel Cabo Blanco is a fairly new addition to the options for cruisers in Barra. It can be reached easily by dinghy or even water taxi. This hotel has become cruiser friendly, meaning buy a beer and use the pool all day etc. Before, the Sands Hotel was the only  cruiser friendly hotel around Barra-Bahia de Navidad we know of. It seems a little run-down but does have good access to Abbarote (groceries) and local bars etc. Reminds me of an old Humphrey Bogart-type hotel. I think it is one of the oldest in Barra.

The pool area, not over-head deep.

Pool table and fish tank with a bar on this level.

Nice eating area by pool. We had a very nice Sunday Brunch for not many pesos 
here on Mothers Day, played some Gin Rummy and had lots of pool time.

You can see our Achilles dinghy through this gate. It is in the next canal over. 
We docked here to go to the Dock Master's office and check in.

This is the Cabo Blanco hotels' dock with our Achilles dinghy 
and the Dock Masters panga tie up at it.

Zipping back to our boat from the Cabo Blanco Hotel
We are thinking of using the Garmin handheld GPS to see how fast 
the dinghy goes :) just because..

See my hat...shows how fast we are going as the wind from our speed
 whips up the brim.  The lagoon makes driving the dinghy really fun
 as it is easy to bring it up on a plane because the water is pretty calm!

Yep, even in the lagoon. Not many or often but they still are zipping around.
