Manzanillo is located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, between Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta. Although it is Mexico’s largest west coast port, it retains its old-world intimacy, warmth, and charm. Take a walk on the mile-long seawalk, the Malecon, to view the scenic bay with its small fishing boats, beautiful beaches, and swaying palm trees. In the center of town, stroll the Jardin, the city’s picturesque garden and popular meeting place for locals and tourists. When you are ready for some great bargain shopping, step outside the Jardin and onto the bordering streets where you will find artisan shops featuring local treasures in leather, silver, and fabric.
Known as the Sailfish Capital of the world, Manzanillo hosts major fishing tournaments in November and February. Water activities in addition to sport fishing are everywhere to be found, from swimming and kayaking to scuba diving and snorkeling. How about a crocodile hunt? Photo hunt, that is. Or a hike through the jungle to observe spider monkeys and exotic birds, or, for the Tarzan in you, a short trip to El Salto waterfall and park to swing on strangler vines and swim in waterfall pools. Manzanillo hotels, resorts, and villas number in the hundreds and range in price from exclusive to budget.
