Mexican Travels – Manzanillo – A Gate to Heaven

Manzanillo is located in Colima State. Located in the Bahia de Santiago (Bay of Good Hope) it boasts one of the best climates in the world, the lowest crime rate in all of Mexico, world class fishing, whale watching, bird watching, golf world class, gorgeous beaches and an opportunity to live or vacation in a world class community.

Manzanillo was established as a port city in 1873. In the past year it has passed Vera Cruz Mexico as the highest volume port, receiving over 1 million 20ft containers each year. Bananas, coconuts, coffee, and organic salt plantations are also here in the region. Manzanillo has a population of 130,000, but with the city spread across two beautiful bays, it holds the charm of the small town that makes it a magical place to spend your vacation or retire in peace and quiet.

Manzanillo has all the necessities. First Class Hospitals, Healthcare (at a fraction of US cost), Affordable Dentistry, Bi & Tri Lingual Private Schools, International Airport, Shopping Centers (Wal Mart, Sorianas and others), Churches, Cinemas, public transport, etc. hi speed internet services, affordable living costs, and much more. Americans and Canadians have been gathering in the area for years. The simple lifestyle and free lifestyle (under 1000.00 per month) is an opportunity that calls us to have suffered through the US economic downturn. We ex-immigrants love the charm and traditions of the Mexican people. There kindness and generosity will bring a smile to your face. Celebrations and traditions are common and a lot of fun to get together.

Manzanillo's economy has been a success story here south of the border. With the recent growth in the port industry, a strong middle class and an increase in foreign tourism the city has thrived in the last three years. Real estate has grown steadily and the labor market is strong. The future looks bright for Manzanillo.


See you in paradise,
