Manzanillo

Manzanillo’s main plaza, also known as Jardin Alvaro Obregon, is surrounded by lordly mansions built by the Spaniards during the Conquista. You can also find plenty of restaurants where you can eat delicious dishes while you look at the port.

Here, in the main plaza, you can find the Municipal Office Building and then take a selfie with the city’s name and with the iconic intense blue Pez Vela (Sailfish), created by the famous artist Sebastián. This big fish sculpture is 25 meters in height. Manzanillo is famous for its sailfish contest where 330 fish can be caught in just one day.

You can plan a stroll near the pier that has about 15 blocks, or maybe, you can try walking to Avenida Mexico, the main city artery that includes popular venues.

The pier offers a permanent exhibition of statues dedicated to the people of the port: fishermen, the stevedore or a propeller transformed into a fountain. If you have the chance, get inside the Buque Buranda, an old vessel that belonged to the Mexican Navy.

Finally , near downtown, you will find the Iguanario Archundia (an iguana reservation) created by Ramon Archundia in order to preserve and spread the knowledge around iguanas. Here you can find other animals as well like birds or racoons. A great choice for families travelling with children.
