All the bays and views from the shore in Manzanillo are beautiful. You can see the small boats, sail boats and the bigger ships waiting to get into port. Any trip to Manzanillo, people should take the local bus to Centro so they can see the whole area, and the port and of course the waterfront square at Centro.
