Manzanillo and Costa Alegre - Heart of the Golden Coast
Manzanillo & Costa Alegre
One reason for Manzanillo's popularity is its enticing tropical geography -- vast groves of tall palms, abundant mango trees, and successive coves graced with smooth sand beaches. To the north, mountains blanketed with palms rise alongside the shoreline, and over it all lies the veneer of perfect weather, with balmy temperatures and year-round sea breezes. Even the approach by plane into Manzanillo showcases the promise -- you fly in over the beach and golf course. Once on the ground, you exit the airport through a palm grove.
Just north of Manzanillo is the 50-mile stretch of golden coast known as the Costa Alegre, a secluded area of fabulous beaches and bays, luxurious resort hideaways and seaside villages that are authentic Mexico. Remote yet accessible, Costa Alegre, largely unknown as a tourist destination, is a rare treat not to be missed.
