On Mexico’s lush west coast lies the secluded city of Manzanillo, an historic, bustling seaport that is home to some of the world’s finest beaches and resorts, , including the storybook Las Hadas. The weather is idyllic; the sunsets spectacular.
The huge marina here is an excellent starting point for seeking out an incredible array of big game fish that abound in the warm ocean waters; Manzanillo is the Sailfish Capital of the World. Offshore there are other treasures, as well, like sunken galleons lost to storied pirates, such as Sir. Francis Drake.
Manzanillo vacations offer something for everyone during the evening, from classical music concerts to lively Folklorico dance performances, high energy discos and noted international restaurants.
Just north of Manzanillo is the 50-mile stretch of golden coast known as the Costa Alegre, a secluded area of fabulous beaches and bays, luxurious resort hideaways and seaside villages that are authentic Mexico. Remote yet accessible, Costa Alegre, largely unknown as a tourist destination, is a rare treat not to be missed.
