Do not recommend. Did not feel safe in the city of Manzanillo, Mexico. Walked around the city and quickly return to cruise boat after seeing young men with guns and the Mexican Federallies just a couple block away from the cruise ship dock.

This area is beautiful at sunset and very popular in the daytime with swimmers, sunbathers and a few surfers. There is a flea market in this area that sell clothing and misc items.

The Santiago peninsula is removed from Manzanillo centro and the port - which is a good thing. The Peninsula is home to many condos, hotels and private homes. La Punta is a high end gated community. Las Hadas is a condo/hotel, has a marina, and many good restaurants. A great condo complex is El Faro at the top of the hill. It has fabulous views of both bays and is known for its beautiful vistas and sunset views. There are no time share salespeople in Manzanillo and it is not anywhere as touristy as PV or Cancun.

As you turn into the road that circles the Santiago Peninsula you will find middle class condominium projects, hotels of all stars. a beach. Within the beach there are eating area, jet skis, boat rentals and sighting by boat around the area.There is the Hotel La Hadas which was the setting of the movie "10 "with Bo Derek and Dudley Moore and the home of female braided hair..Manzanillos claim to fame!.The end of the Peninsula houses a mature development called LaPunta loaded with million dollar homes. Take a trip around the peninsula . Its worth it

Have travelled extensively in MX and otherwise. This is the best. Don't tell anyone. Climate, atmosphere, and yes it is safe! No problem! Many Canadians as we really do seek out the best. There are to timeshare salesmen, in fact there are no salesmen on the streets or the beaches.
