Fodor's Review

The La Barra hamlet is both artistic and trendy, with a number of popular boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife spots. A mostly locally patronized beach sits here, too, where the Río Maldonado spills into the ocean. Keep in mind that swimming is risky. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; toilets. Best for: partiers; sunrise; sunset; surfing; walking.
