Our host Lions Club in Manzanillo Santiago booked a boat tour which picked us up along this beach. There are many large umbrellas available and vendors of homemade and commercial products. The Tesoro Hotel is along this beach. The view is fabulous.

Busy beach by inclusive resorts. Too many people and aggressive vendors. Manzanillo has way better beaches.

This is a great place. You can spend the whole day in this area. Cruz is also available in nearby area and you may get to see whale if you are lucky.

Hello Flaka R, this place is a public beach, but you can find hotels nearby that vary in prices and luxury. If you don't mind spending a little more you can check out Barceló or Las Hadas, that have private beaches near La... More
