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.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
