Mexico destinations
Manzanillo is a city as well as its surrounding municipality in the Mexican state of Colima. The city, located on the Pacific Ocean, contains Mexico's busiest port. It is one of the most beautiful beach destinations in the nation.

The city is well known internationally for deep-sea fishing and the green flash phenomenon during sunsets (Capital Mundial del Pez Vela). The city is a destination resort and has many hotels and self-contained resorts, particularly built on the small peninsula jutting out into the Pacific from the city centre. Just south is the resort Las Hadas ("the fairies"), which is the most famous of the city's resorts, having been featured in the movie 10 starring Bo Derek and Dudley Moore. It is also a popular cruise ship port of call. Many tourists go from their cruise ships on city tours or snorkeling trips in Manzanillo Bay, where a 300 foot long cargo ship sunk in a hurricane in 1959 is a popular spot for both snorkeling and scuba diving. Other wrecks and reefs plentiful with fish are scattered throughout the bay.

Beaches:

Manzanillo's miles of untouched coastline stretches between two main bays Santiago and Manzanillo, offering pristine unpopulated beaches that are widely considered the most beautiful on the western coast of Mexico. Whatever type of beach a visitor is looking for, from gentle waters perfect for children to exciting surf action, they'll find it in Manzanillo. Salahua, Las Hadas, Miramar, La Boquita, La Audiencia and Santiago are some of the pristine beaches waiting to be enjoyed on your Manzanillo vacations.

Isla Navidad:

Reefs, cliffs and gorgeous beaches of golden sand, create a stunning backdrop for the luxury tourist resort of Hotel Gran Bay with its extraordinary 27-hole golf course, one of the best in Mexico. It was in 1541 when the Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza arrived here, exactly on Christmas Day or Navidad, thus making it an obvious choice of name for the island.
