Barra de Potosi is a tiny tranquil beachfront fishing village in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. It is home to a popular lagoon, where you can view the locals fishing for crabs. There are a couple good seafood restaurants with a great view of the bay, Bahia el Potosi. We rented rooms through Airbnb, one of our favorite ways to travel, and we stayed right on the beach, Playa Blanca. One afternoon we were fortunate enough to watch the whales breaching the waves right off the shore in beautiful Mexico. It was amazing!
