is a one hour drive north of Manzanillo
and about three hours south from Puerto Vallarta
. It sits on a lagoon that is a protected ecological zone, which contains many different types of animals and fauna. In the other direction is the Bay of Tenacatita, which not only gives harbour to sailboats and cruisers, but is also home to one of the top fishing destinations in Mexico
. The bay protects the beaches from the open ocean, which means beautiful shorelines, good water conditions, and many private beaches
. There are many beautiful villa rentals available on these private beaches that can be rented for holiday lodging.
Temperatures in La Manzanilla average about 23 degrees Celsius, year round. The area is known for its abundance of sunshine, with the sun coming out for about 345 days out of the year. In the summer months, temperatures often rise into the thirties, so be prepared for the heat.
This small village is sometimes called the Mexican Rivera, comparing it to Europe, due to the lovely cliff top villa rentals and condo rentals
that overlook the shoreline below. There are also villas on the beach itself, footsteps from beautiful aquamarine waters. Apartment rentals
are also available, with most rentals being in walking distance of urban areas. For those looking for something more low key than villas, condos or apartment rentals, there are some cottages and bungalows available outside on the outskirts of the village. Some of the nearby attractions and activities are: deep sea fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, golfing, tennis and yoga
. Many of the vacation rentals are found close to the town center. These take away the enjoyment of a stroll down the beach to get to town, but mean that within footsteps you can reach shops, restaurants, and even the beaches.
There are accommodations for every traveler, regardless of their preferences or of their wallet sizes. Business travelers
will find time saved without the hassles of check in times, or waiting in lines with other impatient travelers, with the added benefit of private accommodations. Great deals
are found in villas used for vacation rentals, which offer economic pricing for larger groups, as well as those looking to enjoyswimming pools, tennis courts, and other amenities
