SAILFISH CAPITAL OF THE WORLD

Manzanillo offers a unique landscape and modern tourist infrastructure.

Located on the Pacific Coast, in the state of Colima, Manzanillo is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Its twin bays, Manzanillo and Santiago, boast crystal blue waters and white-brown sandy shores. These bays are divided by a stretch of beach called Península de Santiago. Santiago Beach, Miramar Beach, and Playa de Oro shimmer with golden and black tones due to the mineral content of the sand, where people enjoy peaceful and fun-filled days by the seaside.

Manzanillo is a relaxed yet vibrant place, a melting pot of locals, Mexican tourists, and foreigners who all have something in common: they find the perfect destination for unforgettable vacations in this city.

The enormous Sailfish sculpture, created by Sebastián, stands 25 meters tall with an intense blue color, dominating the landscape of the Malecón Espíritu Santo. It serves as a reminder that this port is recognized as the "Capital of the Sailfish," where every November, sports fishing enthusiasts from around the world gather to participate in various fishing tournaments organized in the city.

You can fly to Manzanillo International Airport or take a bus from Nogales, Mexico City, Guadalajara, and other port cities in Mexico. If you prefer driving, the trip south from the Arizona border to Manzanillo is about 1,500 miles. Manzanillo is 200 miles from Guadalajara, 150 miles from Puerto Vallarta, and 591 miles from Mexico City. The port enjoys year-round tropical weather with average temperatures of 80ºF (24ºC).

SEE AND LAND

In Manzanillo, people not only engage in fishing but also enjoy diving in places like Los Frailes, the sunken ship in Playa La Boquita, and Bahía Carrizales. Let's not forget the proximity to the Volcán de Fuego and the Volcán Nevado de Colima, offering another adventure from the sea to the mountains, passing through the region's lush nature, coffee plantations, lagoons, and more.

Additionally, you can visit the Iguanario Archundia, dedicated to the preservation of this species, which houses over 600 iguanas.

THE CITY AND ITS CUISINE

Returning to the center of Manzanillo, walking through the streets, you'll observe the white buildings around the main square, a mix of Arab and Mediterranean architecture that gives the city a bright and majestic atmosphere. The streets are lined with shops, restaurants, and ice cream parlors where you can refresh yourself with coconut water or a glass of tejuino, a drink made from fermented corn and piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar), a few drops of lime, and lots of ice. At the Emiliano Zapata craft market, you'll be delighted with hammocks made of thread, earrings, necklaces, wood or silver figurines, embroidery, textiles, and pottery.

The cuisine of Manzanillo is a delight primarily prepared with seafood, such as Colima-style ceviche, Marlin Machaca, and Pescado Zarandeado (grilled fish). You can also try the famous dry pozole served with scraped tostadas. And for dessert? Cocadas, sweet treats made from grated coconut, which you'll find all over the city.
