Beautiful beaches, Ramadas (beach restaurants) good swimming on a long, flat, sandy beach with lots of activities, including a Saturday Tienda (market) in the town of Santiago. The Peninsula juts out along a lagoon, where if you take the rustic road out to (resorts) Vida del Mar and/or Las Palmas you will feel like you are in a jungle wilderness.

Here's a place that we would never have discovered had it not been for a snorkeling trip we booked while on a Princess cruise to the Mexican Riviera. The snorkeling trip booked through Aquatic Adventures, which was one of the best ever, uses this beach to launch from on their dive trips. This secluded spot on the north side of the Manzanillo Bay is not visible from the highway, so if you didn't know about it, you could easily drive right passed the entrance. The water in the bay was hot when we returned from our trip and there is also a shipwreck not far from shore that is full of tropical and local fish just waiting for you to take their picture. The shoreline is full of places to eat and there are plenty of boats available to take you fishing or??? and personal water craft to rent for your pleasure. Great spot, calm waters and plenty of food and sunshine.

We hired a local man to show us around the Santiago area and then take us to old town Manzanillo. He took us on all manner of streets up and down the peninsula to a secluded beach and some little known family-owned hotels and also past the fabulous large hotels/resorts and condos. Along the way he explained some of the history of the region.

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.
