Explore Manzanillo

Manzanillo is comprised of two areas: the shopping area in the south and the the Santiago Peninsula in the northern end, popular with family holidaymakers seeking beautiful resorts. The city is famous for its world-class fishing, and the annual International Sailfish Tournament (November) draws hordes of visitors.

Scuba diving and snorkelling are popular sports. Although there are plenty of charter boats available, it is also possible to access great sites from shore. There is good surfing north of town at Miramar and Olas Altas beaches. Additionally, Manzanillo is quickly becoming one of the top golfing locations in Mexico.

In the center of the city, near the zocalo (main plaza), visitors will find a traditional Mexican town with historic colonial streets and beautiful houses. There is a selection of nice open-air seafood restaurants near to the Playa Las Brisas and Playa Azul, and the shopping in Manzanillo is probably the best anywhere north of Acapulco.

Bahia de Manzanillo, to the south, boasts many fabulous resorts, with everything from water sports and deep-sea fishing to golf. Bahia de Santiago is a far less busy town, with only two resorts and plenty of secluded areas. The coastal highway offers restaurants, souvenir shops and nightspots. A daytrip to Guadalajara, the second-largest city in Mexico, is very convenient. Alternatively, enjoy Colima, a coastal town with a volcano, about 96kms south of Manzanillo.
