Nice water views and worth a quick stroll around. But, aside from some small eateries and souvenir shops, there's really not that much to see. The area is neat and clean and the sword fish sculpture is a nice photo opt. We strolled up a...More

Very historical, old town. Nice to cruise through, enjoy the malecon & drive by the huge port. Many shops & market stores along with several restaurants to stop for lunch. But after seeing it once, no need to return.

Great views of the harbor and navy base. There is a large park, some trees and statuary to see. Ofter the city hosts live performances. There'll be carnival entertainment this coming week. There was Valentine's today.

The iconic towering blue sailfish statue can't be missed. There's also a colorful Manzanillo sign that's perfect for pictures with the bay in the back ground.

Is not crowded as other 'Malecones' in México. But if you had a hot day at the beach, this is a good option for a refreshing evening walk, just to hear the sea at night.

Walked around and bought a few little things. Good selection. They have a nice huge fabric store, which you don't see much any more. Restaurants looked interesting but did not get a chance to try. Manzanillo is a work in progress, I hope they get...More

The centre has changed dramatically over the last 28 years. When we lived here it was beautiful and friendly and welcoming. It has become very much a port and is not very appealing or welcoming anymore so sad to say.
