Standing at 30 meters (98.43 feet) and spread across 25 meters (82.02 feet), Monumento al Pez Vela or the Sailfish Sculpture can be seen from far off whether on land or sea. Nestled in the harbor in the Jardin Alvaro Obregon, it is the mascot of the city that is renowned as the Sailfish Capital of the World. This mammoth blue sailfish statuary was sculpted by a Mexican sculptor called Sebastian. You can't miss the landmark if you are in the center of the city or if you are in the midst of the sea coming towards Manzanillo.

Location:  Calle Juárez, Jardin Alvaro Obregon
