Located south of Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's Pacific coast, Manzanillo is a bustling port city with a small-town feel. Here, you'll find conveniences such as large grocery stores and state-of-the-art hospitals alongside sleepy ocean-side bed and breakfasts. The area is known for its gorgeous beaches, top-notch water sports (think snorkeling and scuba) and abundant wildlife - about a half-hour south of Manzanillo lies Cuyatlan, a small beach town that's home to El Tortugario de Cuyutlan, a turtle sanctuary.
For those looking for urban excitement, Manzanillo is renowned for its restaurants and nightlife. La Toscana is a local favorite that serves incredibly fresh seafood with a bit of French flair. And, for those interested in exploring the tropical landscape, gorgeous cliffs, waterfalls, and rain forests are found nearby where the Sierra Madre Mountains meet the lush hills of the Sierra Madre Del Sur.
