You have to eat some red snapper grilled they open the fish up and grill it and then ask for Adobo sauce They sell it for 250 pesos a kilo Make sure you bring your own ice chest though for a nice day on the beach

Enjoy a day at the beach, fresh fish and seafood prepared the way you like, and some bebidas with friends. Our favourite spot to eat is El Ray.

We have eaten huachinango there every trip for the past twenty years! It is awesome! The place is great for people watching. You can take your own liquor, too!

La Boquita offers an authentic Mexican family beach experience. Great seafood and people watching. Gentle waves and warm water. Lots of restaurants to choose from. This is not nouvelle cuisine dining, it is unpretentious, real and good.

There are many small restaurants in this area all offering a wide variety of seafood and fish dishes. In many of these you can chose the fresh fish you want to eat, have it cooked and stuffed and served the way you like it. Great dish for 2 to 20. You decide and choose the fish, many types available from... More

We were so discouraged when stopping at #1 for a late lunch to find only one vacant table and the others filled with very noisy young people. It was also very, very hot because of the crowd. We saw, rather than heard, musicos and decided that was the last straw so we left. We drove to #3, not far up... More

Great beach to rent aquatic toys and to play in the water. If you have little ones that aren't confident in swimming then this is the place to bring them. You will have tons of locals from neighboring towns visiting on the weekends. Very safe. Clean (except for weekends due to volume of people).

We've been in Manzanillo almost a month now, and have eaten at many places (good, and not so good) around town. Our favourite place thus far has been La Bouquita--we've visited for breakfast once, and lunch twice. First of all, the location is amazing... the open air restaurant sits just steps away from a lagoon and a beach... it is... More

Been coming here for 16 years, and food is good, waiters (especially Saul and Salvadore) are terrific. Best Tortilla Soup in Manzanillo. Excellent fish, tacos, burgers, chicken, shrimp. At night Jesus is on the Keyboards and often Salvadore sings Mexican favorites and sometimes Maricella (the owner) too. Almost all guests are Gringos from Club Santiago and Vida del Mar areas.
