                      Car: Not Necessary

                      We usually spend most of our time in Club Santiago and Santiago. We get as far South as Salagua but rarely make it to Manzanillo. A day trip to Colima and Colama is a nice excursion. There is local surf and Pascuales (expert surfers only!) is about 1-1.5 hour away and people carpool there.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Here are the owners on the left and our dear friend Irma. She grew up in Manzanillo and we vacationed there with her and her husband. They are very good friends of ours from Santa Barbara. Without them we would have never found Manzanillo. Part of the motivation of buying there was I am trying to become fluent in Spanish. Manzanillo is a wonderful place to practice Spanish. The locals are so kind and helpful. I feel so a part of a small community. I keep saying Manzanillo but we really are in another area Santiago, although connected, is very far different. I share our home because we enjoy sharing and it is expensive to own a second home! We will do all we can to direct you to a wonderful time in our second home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Manzanillo:
                      It was the stunning beach that made up our minds. We really liked being up in the trees where the breeze is strong. For us either it was ocean front or having a great breeze and an easy walk to the beach. We could have bought ocean front, but too far away from a city, so Club Santiago and Villas de Menorca was a great choice for us. If you can afford ocean front, do it, otherwise we are a fantastic option for ocean and quiet lovers.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      When we are there we like to wake up early, put coffee in thermal cups and head down to the beach for the sunrise. Since we closed escrow April 2008 each of the three trips we have worked our butts off creating the home that you see, I even worked hard at getting the pictures you see! We went shopping in Tlagapaque and Tonala for all the pretty traditional things in our place. So the morning coffee at the beach was an important part of our day. Then to close each work day out at sunset we would take a shot of tequila down and swim in the ocean until dark. Sunset on the Pacific with a fine Mexican Tequila kissing my beloved...doesn't get much better...except walking home in my bathing suite and being comfortable in just a sarong.
