Manzanillo is more than just beautiful beaches. Manzanillo is one of Colima’s largest municipalities. It is known for its fishing and port industries. The best way of getting to know this place better is walking through the center, where many will be happy to tell you a little about its history. Maybe they will tell you that it was the third port built by the Spanish on the Pacific, in 1530. To hear this and other historic anecdotes it might be a good idea to sit down in the square named Jardín Álvaro Obregón whilst you enjoy a tuba, Colima’s emblematic drink made with coconut water.
You can’t leave before taking a photograph of yourself in the great blue monument of Pez Vela, which can be seen in the distance. This sculpture made by the artist known as Sebastián, is 82-foot-tall and its base, lit up at night, is around 100-foot-wide.
If you want to try local flavors, head towards Mercado Cinco de Mayo and try the pozole (traditional soup) from Pozolería Raquelito; they also offer other interesting options.
