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).

“our favourite restaurant!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

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 surrounded by lovely gardens, butterflies galore, and beautiful tropical birds.

The service is fantastic--we've had 2 different waiters, and both have been terrific. They are totally charming and have great senses of humour and it would be worth going just to spend time with them.

Finally--the food. The food is fantastic--best food I've had since we've been in Mexico. I've had shrimp twice, and both times it's been prepared to perfection. My husband had the Mexican platter once and really enjoyed it, and today had a beef dish (name escapes me) and loved it. The margaritas are also the best I've had on this holiday.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting this area!

“Consistenly good food, atmosphere and value”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

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.
