A charming old Mexican town with new world amenities.
Manzanillo is situated between Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. It is on the same latitude as Hawaii, and has a wonderful, moderate climate. There are about 10 kilometres of golden sand beaches, right in town. Palm beach front real estate abounds!
Manzanillo is home to the largest port in Mexico, Puerto de Manzanillo, as well as ‘super’ base for the Mexican Navy. About 125,000 people live in the greater Manzanillo area, and yet it still has a small-town feel.
There are 3 major shopping centres in Manzanillo: Comercial Mexicana, Soriana, and WalMart, as well as numerous smaller shops, many restaurants, night clubs, and movie theatres.
Colima is the capital of the state Colima and is only an hour drive from Manzanillo. It is worth a visit with it’s old world Mexican charm, the vulcano and Sunday evening get-togethers on the plaza while enjoying live music from one of the patios.
Several major airlines are servicing Manzanillo, including Alaska, Continental, Delta, Mexicana, AeroMexico, and Magnicharters. During the winter, charters like Westjet also service Manzanillo from Canada and the United States.
