Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Designed for those who prefer little or no walking, this four hour excursion offers a relaxing way to view this exciting and bustling city. Long recognized as the largest shipping port on Mexico's western coast, Manzanillo is also known for its beautiful beaches, its reputation as the world capital for sailfish, and for its phenomenal shopping.

After boarding your fully air-conditioned transportation, you'll drive through the city's busy port facility as your guide shares the resort's history and its many highlights en route to the Miramar Flea Market. As you step off, you'll notice that the market is actually a series of booths set up along Manzanillo's pristine beach. This is a great opportunity for you to browse and barter for clothing, gold, silver and shell jewelry. As you stroll along the beach, many food vendors will offer you a chance to indulge in some of the local specialties including coconut and tamarind candy and a delicacy called cajeta, which is a type of milk caramel. However, if you're not interested in bargaining or tasting, vendors will comply with a friendly "no gracias."

Your next destination is a photo stop at Peninsula de Santiago where you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the city, the crescent shaped beaches, and the Las Hadas resort, one of the city's most famous and the location of the popular movie 10, which starred Bo Derek and Dudley Moore.

Then, you'll stop for a refreshing drink at a restaurant that overlooks the bay. From this vantage point you'll be able to witness the sparkling blue waters of Mexico's gold coast and, depending on the time of year, watch grey whales and dolphins on their yearly migrations.

Manzanillo's old town plaza is your last stop. Back in your transportation, you'll continue along the city's winding narrow streets past whitewashed homes and resorts to the main street in downtown called Avenida Mexico. This open-air market overflows with stores selling clothes, postcards, T-shirts and souvenirs. Here, you'll have the chance to shop or quench your thirst at one of the many ichoacanas stores that sell tasty fruit flavored waters. Later, you can return directly to your ship or stay in the plaza and then walk back to the ship.
