MANZANILLO

SURROUNDINGS

-Cuyutlán Lagoon: A beautiful and extensive, perhaps even magical Lagoon. A splendid place that captures visitors not only for its natural charm, but also for its complementary attractions: a welcoming homonymous Town and a beach resort of rebellious and daring waves that reach nine metre highs in spring (March to May).
Only 70 kilometres separate Manzanillo from Cuyutlán, a distance that is gladly covered when one discovers the simple Town of Cuyutlán, which has good hotels and restaurants, or the traditional Ola Verde Beach, where windsurfing can be practiced. Those with good memory recall that its name is related to a mournful event that happened in 1932. That year an overwhelming mass of water 20 metres high, which rose after a series of seismic movements, levelled everything in its path.

-El Tortugario Ecological Centre: A place to learn, enjoy, and feel you are an advocate of nature before the chance of liberating, between August and January, baby gulf or black turtles, endangered species protected at this wildlife "sanctuary", located 3 kilometres away from Cuyutlán, in the Municipality of Armería.
In addition, the Centre has a section with crocodiles and iguanas, besides a path of birds, to best amuse visitors.

-Barra de Navidad: It is a community of artists and creators, a town with a bohemian atmosphere with stretching nights and conversations that are always fun. It is located on Navidad Island, a superb tourist complex an hour and a half away from Manzanillo. It has a lavish hotel, tasty restaurants and luring amusement centres. There is also a lagoon of calm waters and even a golf course surrounded by reefs.

  • -Colima: A volcano, a snow-capped mountain and several, perhaps hundreds of "kissing dogs", are some of the characteristic features of this City of pre-Hispanic roots, which was founded on July the 25th of 1523 by Gonzalo de Sandoval.
    A tour along Colima must include visits to the archaeological compounds of El Cubano, El Chanal, Los Ortices and Los Asmoles, complexes built by the cultures native of the west of Mexico. It is an exciting and educational experience that will allow you to watch pyramids, religious precincts and pottery, amongst other vestiges from the past.
    A tour along the centenarian City centre is indispensable as well. It is an urban space of imposing colonial buildings such as the Cathedral, of neoclassical features, and the Palace of Government, with its notable murals.
    Colima, capital of the homonymous State, extends across two summits, the Fuego Volcano, and the Colima Snow-capped Mountain, silent giants that seem to survey the evolution of this agreeable City, located 73 kilometres away from Manzanillo and at 1200 kilometres from Mexico City.
    Another peculiarity in Colima, the land "where the old god or fire god rules", according to its meaning on Náhuatl language, are the dog - vessels called itzcuintli or kissing dogs, singular ceramics that presumably have pre-Hispanic roots.
    You can visit the following places in the vicinity of Colima:
    • Comala: It is a warm provincial City located 10 kilometres away from the centre of Colima. It is a quiet place of white little houses of red tiled roofs, and generous orchards, that hardly changes a little at its main plaza, where the restaurants located under the portals emanate an exquisite aroma of homemade food, of town food.
      Comala keeps flashy colonial buildings such as the Parish of San Miguel Archangel, built in the XVIII century. Another place of much interest is the Pueblo Blanco Cooperative, a notable crafts centre in which new creators are prepared, and where wooden suites, leatherworks and ironworks are offered.
      Another attraction is the former Nogueras Hacienda, of the XVIII century, currently known as Nogueras Cultural Compound. The artworks of Colima's most renowned artists are exhibited in here.
      It has an uncertain weather that oscillates between cold and mild.
    • Suchitlán: It is a Town of artisans located at 10 kilometres from Comala. Its inhabitants, mostly of Náhuatl origin, keep their habits and artistic expressions, being the most representative the elaboration of the colourful wooden masks they use on their dances, and the fabrics made out of otate or guadua, a sort of bamboo, reed and zapilotate fibres, with which they produce an ample variety of baskets.
