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... 更多
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... 更多
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.
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.

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... 更多
As you turn into the road that circles the Santiago Peninsula you will find middle class condominium projects, hotels of all stars. a beach. Within the beach there are eating area, jet skis, boat rentals and sighting by boat around the area.There is the Hotel La Hadas which was the setting of the movie "10 "with Bo Derek and Dudley... 更多
Have travelled extensively in MX and otherwise. This is the best. Don't tell anyone. Climate, atmosphere, and yes it is safe! No problem! Many Canadians as we really do seek out the best. There are to timeshare salesmen, in fact there are no salesmen on the streets or the beaches.
The Santiago Peninsula is an excellent place to stay because it gets you out of the traffic and noise of Manzanillo, which is the biggest port city on the Pacific coast of Mexico. There are a lot of good restaurants on the main drag and more out on Playa Miramar beach which is fairly close.
