Are you ready to visit Mexico's best kept secret on the Pacific coast?
Manzanillo is not your typical seaside resort town with ideal tropical weather. All at once, this coastal city is a luxury beach destination; a bustling commercial port; and a pristine, undeveloped, eco-friendly region. Premier beaches, deep sea fishing, and water sports abound in this gold coast destination.
Start packing those fishing rods and reels, because Manzanillo is the Sailfish Capital of the World. This port city has hosted important national and international fishing competitions, such as the Dorsey Tournament, since 1957. There are plenty of fishing spots, both guided and unguided – perfect for beginners and fishing enthusiasts alike.
Like most remarkable destinations, there is natural beauty unique to the area. Manzanillo is no exception. Separated by a huge mass of rugged rocks and lush greenery are the Bahias Gemelas, or the city's twin bays. Manzanillo's best known ecological attraction boast beaches of stunning ebony and gold volcanic sand, which put it at the top of the list of things to do while visiting. But there's plenty in the way of beaches while in Manzanillo: fine sand and gentle slopes line the beaches of Miramar and La Audiencia. Scuba diving and snorkeling are highly recommended in these areas as calm waters make for ideal under water conditions to view marine life. At Las Hadas Marina, hire a yacht to enjoy the sun and the region's incredible shoreline scenery along the Bahias Gemelas of Manzanillo and the bays of Santiago. The ride also affords you an excellent view of ideal spots for ecotourism outings, camping and adventure sports.
As you explore Manzanillo's downtown, you'll discover numerous restaurants serving regional cuisine, such as ceviche or tatemado, a pork backbone dish. Visit the sea-side markets and take in local artisanal offerings, including hammocks and hand-crafted jewelry. While exploring, make sure to hit the boardwalk and stroll along the marina. Relax at the Alvaro Obregon garden in front of the pier at the centre of downtown and watch ships and sailboats in the bay. And the Monumento al Pez Vela (Sailfish Monument), the iconic symbol of the city, is a must-see for any visitor.
Manzanillo also offers visitors three world renowned golf courses, some of which are surrounded by lagoons and mountains, and offer spectacular ocean views. These courses offer everything you'll need for a perfect day on the links.
Long regarded as one of the Mexico's most charming sea-side escapes, Manzanillo still holds the lure of an old-world Mexican fishing village. Its narrow streets weave casually up the hillsides, giving way to stunning ocean views, lush vegetation, and a breathtaking mountain coastline.
