LA SIRENA GORDITA BEACH BAR ON PLAYA DE COCOS IN BARRA DE NAVIDAD, was not really planned. It just happened due to a need to provide for our B&B guests. Villa Star of the Sea, Boutique Hotel, Bed and Breakfast was planned and beyond breakfast we were planning to send our guests to Maria at Cocos Cabanas for additional meals and beverages. Unfortunately, Maria closed Coco Cabanas in March of 2014, while Villa Star of the Sea was one month into
construction. Other restaurants are in Colimilla and Barra de Navidad, close enough to walk for a bit of an adventure but too far for every meal and drink beyond breakfast at Villa Star of the Sea to make it convenient. Thus, Sirena Gordita was created, more as a need to accommodate our guests than the desire to be in the bar-restaurant business. Sirena Gordita is now one of two places to eat on Playa de Cocos. We are open until 6 PM.
So we have started with light tapas snack meals. There are several menu options.
Buying wines for La Sirena Gordita have been done in Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara, Cihuatlan, Manzanillo and the USA. The local beer served will be Estrella, Corona, and Pacifico.
We will be open on the beach at Playa de Cocos, We are open from Nov 15th until the end of April. We are strictly tapas type menu Our music is a selection of soft mellow jazz. This season we will be staffing earlier and open longer hours Have a look at us on Trip Advisor.
Legend of the Mermaid
With nearly three-quarters of the Earth covered by water, it's little wonder that, centuries ago, the oceans were believed to contain many mysterious creatures, including sea serpents and mermaids. Mermaids and mermen are, of course, only the marine version of half-human, half-animal legends that have captured human imagination for ages. In folklore, mermaids were often associated with bad luck and misfortune. They lured errant sailors off course and even onto rocky shoals, much like their cousins, the sirens — beautiful, alluring half-bird, half-women who dwelled near rocky cliffs and sung to passing sailors. The sirens would enchant men to steer their ships toward the singing — and the dangerous rocks that were sure to sink them. Homer's "Odyssey," written around 800 B.C., tells tales of the brave Ulysses, whose naked ears were tortured by the sweet sounds of the sirens. In other legends — from Scotland and Wales, for example — mermaids befriended, and even married, humans. Traditions concerning creatures half-human and half-fish in form have existed for thousands of years, and the Babylonian deity Era or Oannes, the Fish-god, is represented on seals and in sculpture, as being in this shape over 2,000 years BC
