Barra de Potosi
Sendas del Mar is near the village of Barra de Potosi, a traditional Mexican fishing village of three unpaved streets and fewer than 500 residents.
The village sits at the mouth of a large lagoon ringed by mangroves that provides the launching area for the small open fishing boats that the local men take out everyday to handline red snapper or net sardines and other fish.
From the village, Playa Blanca stretches north for nine miles in a shallow bay ringed by pure sand beach. The beach has a smattering of vacation homes, a few B&B’s and restaurants, and the homes of locals, but by tourist standards it is largely undeveloped and remains very simple, peaceful and laid back.
