The small fishing village of Barra de Potosí is about 26km southeast of Zihuatanejo. It’s located at the far tip of Playa Larga's seemingly endless palm-fringed, sandy-white beach, and at the mouth of the brackish Laguna de Potosí, a saltwater lagoon about 6.5km long and home to hundreds of species of birds, including herons, kingfishers, cormorants and pelicans. The village is thankfully free of any resort hotels and makes for a marvelous wind-down stay in a friendly Mexican community.
