Located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, Manzanillo has often been described as intimate, cultural, historic, and even magical. The lush, tropical environment offers tourists a great place to get away. It is also not surprising that you get an authentic Mexican experience here, considering that the first paved roads only came in 2003. The sandy beaches and verdant hillsides provide a setting that offer lazy days by the ocean and outdoor adventures alike. If you are thinking about venturing to Manzanillo or its surroundings and need a great hotel, we have sorted some of the best hotels that you are going to find here in some of the most popular categories.
