Acclaimed as "The World's Capital of Sailfish," Manzanillo is a superb nautical destination, boasting smooth waves, moderate currents and twenty golden beaches. Its maritime history dates back to the 17th Century, where it was the starting point for numerous expeditions to the Orient. Halfway between the United States and Guatemala, Manzanillo is slow in developing, which contributes to its charm. However, it is quickly gaining in popularity due to the railway and superhighway that now connect Manzanillo and Guadalajara. It isn't just accessibility that draws people to this rustic seaside town, but the spectacular beaches, the excellent deep sea fishing, and deluxe resorts like the unique Moroccan-styled Club Las Hadas that was featured in the film "10."
