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.

The Santiago peninsula is removed from Manzanillo centro and the port - which is a good thing. The Peninsula is home to many condos, hotels and private homes. La Punta is a high end gated community. 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... More

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.

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...
