Located past club Santiago, the road to get there us really bumpy, and is partly gravel. It's a great place to spend the day at the beach, easy swimming or just playing in the water. Many restaurants to pick from

Our favorite time to head to the La Boquita Beach and it's Ramadas is Sunday afternoon. The beaches can get crowded with all the families, but that is the fun of it. Lots to do.....swimming, horseback riding, Banana rides, paddle boarding, etc. El Rey is our favorite restaurant......the food is wonderful and the beer is cold. The Margaritas are also... More

We went to Ramada El Rey based on the reviews and comments. The food was delicious but as it's a popular place we thought prices were a lot lower. We spent about USD$120 for a party of four and the place is practically on the beach with inexpensive tables and chairs. I insist, food was delicious but the experience was... More

This is a strange, somewhat misleading Tripadvisor listing. La Boquita has several restaurants - not just one. La Boquita is the northwest part of the bay which includes, to the southeast, the lovely walking beach extending to Miramar and Santiago, ending just before the rocky peninsula where one finds Las Hadas and other resorts. In the La Boquita area there... More

This is where the locals go. Everyone is friendly. It is very safe and tourist should come here and enjoy a real Mexican meal. The red snapper is incredible and fresh. This place beats every other restaurant we ate at for three weeks. The service was great and we speak four words of Spanish. But you can get by with... More

I have been to the Ramadas (a row of small palapa roof restaurants) on La Boquita beach many times. It is relaxing, fun, inexpensive and the seafood is excellent. Hurricane Patricia did some major damage to the Ramadas, but they will rebuild quickly. Show your support by returning and frequenting these places so they can get back on their feet.... More

While most of the enramadas are very good, we always head for Marildos. Try their Pescado Zarandeado. It's the best in Manzanillo!

If having great fish that was caught a few hours before you got there, this is the place. Its a fisherman's enclave with the boats right in front. The setting is primitive, but authentic as you watch your choice grilled right in front of you.A real treat

This place is largely visited by locals. The food is extremely fresh…right out of the ocean. The menus are limited, but all food is great. Try the grilled red snapper! They will let you see the fish to make sure it's fresh enough and the size you want to purchase.

Great beach for anyone the ramadas all have a varied menu but mostly fish and seafood.Average price food ,drinks are good and not overpriced.The tables are all under a covering or umbrellas.The wave action is usually calm and there is a great swimming area. Also you have other activities to do from this beach.

This small restaurant under an open-air palapa is on the same property as Palma Real Hotel. I've been eating there for many years and it is consistently excellent (I own a vacation home nearby).
