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.

Hidden away beach. There are local vendors, Beach chair & umbrella rentals $150 MX. Coconut drinks are over-priced. Warm waters that are easy to swim & soak in. Great day at the beach overall.

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.
