Manzanillo is known as the "Emerald of the Pacific" due to its intensely blue and greenish waters, and as an emerald it cannot be stranger to the uneasiness and the eagerness of meeting travellers.
For this reason, an important tourist industry has developed in Manzanillo, in the State of Colima, in which the fabulous and impressive hotel compounds that rise before the waves of the sea stand out.
Perhaps the most famous one is Las Hadas, for the movie 10, with Bo Derek and Dudley Moore, was shot in here in the early 1980s; since then, dozens of hotels have been built in Manzanillo, thus configuring an attractive offer for tourists.
The most economic lodges are located in the city centre, whilst the 5 star hotels and others of similar characteristics are in the so-called Hotel Zone, nearby the sea, and on the Santiago Peninsula. Most of them offer the "all included" system. The characteristics standing out in these establishments, both the austere and the lavish, are cordiality and a kind treatment.
The rates of the rooms vary according to the time of the year. Rates increase between 20 and 30 percent between November and April. Prices increase 50 percent or more during the Christmas, New Year and Easter (Holy Week) holydays; on the other hand, rates drop to half the normal rate during the summer, from June to October.
Manzanillo, which is also called the "World Capital of the Sailfish", is famous for its fishing tournaments taking place between November and February. If you are planning on visiting this destination during the said tournaments, it is advisable to book your reservations with due anticipation.
Manzanillo is waiting for you throughout the year to enjoy its festive ambiance, the kindness of its people, its gorgeous settings, and its modern hotel infrastructure.
