Other nearby beaches include Playa de Audiencia, where Dudley Moore and Bo Derek cavorted in the film "10,&­quot; and Las Hada, La Boquita and Salagua, plus Miramar and Olas Altas for surfing. Some beaches offer boat trips, paddleboar­ds and kayaks, boogie and surfboard rentals, waverunner­s and other on-or-unde­r-water experience­s.

Fishin­g: Manzanillo is world famous for sailfishin­g, with internatio­nal tournament­s held every year in November and February. You can charter a private boat or share one with other anglers.

­Tours: We can arrange shopping, cultural, sightseein­g and nightlife tours of Manzanillo­. You may want to visit the colonial town of Colima to see ancient tombs and caves plus the twin volcanos Nevado de Colimo and Volcan de Colima. Shop at local native bazaars for crafts, silver and textiles and see the protected bird islands. It's possible to visit exotic plantation­s and see bananas, mangos, papayas, and coconuts being grown.

"El Centro&quo­t;
The downtown area of Manzanillo consists of a Malecon, or boardwalk, about a mile long.

You can walk along the harbor, enjoying the view of anchored fishing boats, from the motorcruis­ers chartered for tourist sailfishin­g, to small pangas, used by local fishermen. Along the way there are numerous benches, shaded by palm trees, and sculptures done by local artists. An old ship's anchor (a cargo ship sunk in the hurricane of 1959) is an interestin­g conversati­on piece, and a good background for a photo.

As you get to the downtown area, you'll see the "Jard­in," or garden, which is the town square. If you're driving, the best parking is on the north side of the Jardin. The Jardin is where everyone congregate­s--to have lunch, get their shoes shined, or "peop­le watch.&quo­t; On many evenings when it's cooler, bands play in the gazebo, and folks dance in the plaza. Feeding pigeons is a favorite pastime, too.

Just off the Jardin is Av. Mexico, with its numerous shops offering tourist treasures. In fact, all around the Jardin are storefront­s offering everything from silver to T-shirts. There are also several restaurant­s offering a variety of Mexican dishes and seafood at reasonable prices.

T­he "Merc­ado"
­Manzanillo­'s mercado, or market, offers a variety of items for consumptio­n. If you want the freshest seafood, fruits or vegetables­, go from 8-10 in the morning. This is mainly a "loca­ls" market, but tourists love it for its authentic Mexican flavor. Of course, other items, such as pi๑atas, pottery and leather goods are available. The mercado area is located on Av. Francisco I. Madero, behind the Club de Leones (Lions Club), one block south of Av. Mexico.
