MANZANILLO

ATTRACTIONS

Beaches and sand, hot sun and cooling waves, fun, joy and relax. A pleasant tour that starts at Manzanillo's kilometric coastline, west of Mexico, where the Pacific forms two enjoyable bays, beautiful, splendid, small portions of paradise.

The Bays of Manzanillo and Santiago (State of Colima) allow intimating with the renovating waters of the sea, and also to practice nautical sports that will ensure you several days of adventure. If relax if what you are looking for, here you will find the necessary infrastructure to forget the tensions and the problems; yes, you will return rejuvenated.

But Manzanillo is something other than beaches. Architectonic and cultural attractions are part of the travel menu as well, including a visit to the City of Colima, the State's capital, which preserves its pre-Hispanic and colonial roots.
While staying at Manzanillo, do not fail to visit the following places:

-Álvarez Obregón Garden: It is the main plaza in Manzanillo, with gorgeous fountains made out of quarry stones, and a pavilion of colonial features in its central part. Artist Rancel Hidalgo, a natural from Colima, designed it. It is located before Manzanillo's jetty, a place that comes to life with the arrival of ships and cruisers come from all over the world. It is undoubtedly a good starting point to take a City tour.

-Faro de Campos: It is a privileged vantage point that allows enjoying a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean, the Cuyutlán Lagoon and a large part of Manzanillo. It is located on top of one of the hills in the northern sector of Playa de Campos, a few kilometres away from the City centre.
