The Laguna de Navidad is located on the east side of Barra de Navidad. The lagoon was the location for the filming of the movie McHale's Navy and was dredged out for that purpose. Although it is a beautiful feature, the lagoon is considered polluted and it not recommended for swimming.

Laguna de Navidad is at right with Isla de Puercos in the center of it. Pigs used to be kept on Isla de Puercos and the fishermen would give any lobster they found in their nets to the pigs because they weren't thought to be good for eating. To the left is Bahía de Navidad. Barra de Navidad is in the center of the photo and the Grand Bay Hotel is in the foreground with its marina at lower right.
