Description

Barranco is a super relaxed little village. We stayed for the weekend and loved every minute. You’ll meet pretty much all the residents within a few hours.

Could pretty much park anywhere within reason, but we met the village council chairman and owner of the only bar, Ras Jerry. He insisted we stay behind his bar next to the village church, just to be sure. Didn’t pay anything but we did buy some beers from him. He has bathrooms too, and let us use his sink to wash up when my water pump shorted out.

We got lucky and arrived on a weekend that they were holding a Garifuna memorial ceremony, so it was great to catch that at the Garifuna temple.

Barranco only has two little tuck shops, so definitely stock up on fresh groceries before you head out.

WARNING: the road the Barranco from the Punta Gorda junction is not paved, and even though it’s only 25km it took over an hour each direction. Some parts are pretty gnarly, but no 4x4 needed. I took it super slow at ~10mph and had no problems (in my RWD micro-RV).
