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.

The peninsula is close enough and far enough from amenities you will want. A car is almost a necessity unless you are in great shape and have the stamina for walking in the sun. There are three nice, calm beaches. Only Audecia gets busy on Sunday's. Counterintuitively, the higher you are on the peninsular, the better. The breezes are wonderful.... More

I have been lucky enough to be able to stay on this breathtaking peninsula many times, from Las Hadas & its gorgeous, calm, protected beach (that has a raft you can easily swim out too which is one of my favorite things to do, to the Karmina Palace (before the Barcelo took over & ruined it), to Puerto Las Hadas...

We went out for a stroll along the beach where we ended up climbing up the rocks to go out near the the tip of the pensisula where we were able to see all sorts of sea life.

This peninsula divides the large Manzanillo bay into north and south lobes. The east end of the peninsula is occupied by a golf course. The rocky west end of the peninsula is relatively high and rocky, covered by luxurious homes, condos and hotels. One can catch a city bus into the peninsula at the intersection with the main road running... More

This peninsula houses a variety of high end condos and funky buildings built along, what seems to be, almost impossibly challenging cliffs. The high end Las Hadas resort can be found here as well as the Barceló golf course. Now on the flip side, the views must be fabulous. We stayed at the Tesoro and you can't beat the views... More
