One of Mexico's best-kept secrets

Spectacularly situated on the Pacific coast of Mexico, the seaside resort town of Manzanillo is one of the country’s best-kept secrets. It has all the charms of an old-world Mexican fishing village combined with the amenities of a luxurious and eco-friendly beach destination.

Narrow streets weave their way up the hillsides, and give way to panoramic ocean views, lush greenery, and a stunning mountain coastline. Its twin bays accent its natural beauty, while beaches of gold and ebony volcanic sand make for wonderful scuba diving, snorkeling, and beachcombing.

For decades, Manzanillo has hosted a variety of national and international fishing competitions, so an afternoon out on the water is an absolute must in the “sailfish capital of the world”, as well as a visit to the Monumento al Pez Vela (Sailfish Monument), the iconic symbol of the city.
