The Deep Sea Port of Manzanillo, Mexico
The modern port of Manzanillo was
established in 1971 and is located in the state of Colima on the west
coast of Mexico. But it's history dates back to pre-Columbian times,
when the area was inhabited by various indigenous groups.
Hotel Marbella Manzanillo, Mexico
Winter time is the best for going
to the beaches here in Mexico. Billy was getting itchy feet again so he
planned a trip for us going up the Pacific Coast beginning in Manzanillo,
and ending up in Puerto Vallarta. This was our wonderful hotel in
Playa La Boquita
About 9 kilometers from our hotel
in Manzanillo is this beautiful, family-style beach called Playa La
Boquita. Since we wanted a calm bay to swim in, we grabbed a taxi
outside our hotel grounds and asked him to take us there.
Beach San Patricio, Mexico
Expats have favored this little
beach town for decades and one sees many "Gringos" walking around town.
It's on the route from Manzanillo to Puerto Vallarta so the buses run
through here often and it's an easy stopover. The weather in Melaque is
a particular draw especially for those living in Canada and in the
Northern United States.
The Market in Manzanillo, Mexico
Billy takes you through the Fresh
Market in Manzanillo. You'll find fruits and vegetables stacked
perfectly, local cheeses, pet food, fresh meats, fish, seafood and
chicken. Everything you could need! Check it out.
Port of Manzanillo, Mexico
Billy shows you the Port of
Manzanillo, Mexico's most active deep water port. In the middle of
winter, the day's temperature will reach 80 degrees Fahrenheit. See the
clear water at the shore, a large ship and several tug boats.
Hanging around the Docks in
Taking a walk around the docks in
Manzanillo, Mexico. The sea is a DEEP BLUE, there are lots of small
craft fishing boats, some net fishing and an exciting event where men
pull up a Jack Fish. Beautiful weather here in the winter, where sports
fishing is famous. Manzanillo is the 2nd largest demand port in Mexico.
Playa La Boquita, Manzanillo,
About 10 kilometers from our hotel
in Manzanillo is this sweet beach, La Boquita. Itís a great family beach
with easy waves, clear water, and about 20 restaurants from which to
choose. With a wide open expansive bay, your view is unobstructed for
miles. Take a look!

coast. La Boquita is a small family-friendly beach with clear water,
easy for swimming with lots of restaurants to choose from for your
meals. About 9 kilometers from our hotel in Manzanillo, it's a warm
winter location for those wanting to get out of the cold.
BEAUTIFUL Melaque, Mexico Beach and
Billy pans the BEAUTIFUL Bay at
Melaque, Mexico, a famous Gringo hangout. It's a peaceful morning with
birds cawing and feeding on the fish in the water. Someone is net
fishing, some people are out for their morning swim.
Zona Romantica in
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Here we are in Zona Romantica in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where the
locals hang out. Take a look at the dock and "The Sail" which is
beautiful. Be sure to check out the links to Manzanillo and Melaque too.
A Walk through Melaque Beach Town
Billy takes you through a popular
Expat beach location called Melaque, Mexico. A funky little beach town
with lots of restaurants and shops, the weather is perfect during the
winter. Not far from Puerto Vallarta and Barra de Navidad, Gringos have
known about Melaque for decades. Take a look.
