We always stay on the peninsula because of the terrific hotels with views of the bay. There is a bus that goes around the peninsula about every half hour, so it is easy to get down to the main street.

We didn't stop but the beach looked fantastic for playing, swimming and walking for miles. Lots of parking and local buses went past this area often

We're not fans of gated communities and it seems many occupy this peninsula. Still, it's worth a winding drive to see the hillside enclaves on this peninsula that separates Santiago Bay and Manzanillo Bay..

Santiago is a nice, long bay, great for walks and swimming. The beach is rough on the east end but is swimmable closer to the hill on the west end. Can get very crowded on local holidays and weekends.
