Manzanillo is located nearly midway along the western coast of Mexico, approximately 150miles south of Puerto Vallarta. Close by and to the north of the town are the two bays that are partly responsible for its growth, Bahia De Santiago and Bahia De Manzanillo, which is the closest.
Average daytime temperatures range from the low to middle 80’s F, while evenings are only about 10° cooler. The winter months are relatively dry, but during the summer months of June to October, it is more humid, with a likelihood of showers.
Water sports are abundant in Manzanillo. There are wonderful beaches, the most popular ones being located at Bahia De Santiago, Bahia De Manzanillo and Playa Audiencia. Known as the sailfish capital of the world, Manzanillo is very popular with deep-sea fishermen along with scuba diving, which is run from centres staffed by qualified instructors. Parasailing also popular and is done from winch-direct boats, which eliminates potentially dangerous beach take offs and landings. The beaches are usually not too crowded, so you can also enjoy a relaxing day laying in the sun or playing in the waves.
