Colimilla is a small village located on the peninsula of Isla de Navidad just across the lagoon on the back side of Barra de Navidad. This part of the peninsula is dominated by the Grand Bay Hotel.
A short water taxi ride will take you to one of the restaurants in Colimilla along the shore of the lagoon. We chose Restaurant Mary’s and had a terrific lunch of ceviche and a fresh seafood salad with shrimp, mussels, octopus, crab and fish.

Just around the point of the northern border of Bahia Navidad is a small beach, Cuastecomate. There’s no town here, just a few small shops and homes, a hotel and several restaurants on the beach. All of the restaurants have tables with umbrellas out on the sand so they are very inviting to sit and have a beer and a snack. Which is just what we did.
