About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Manzanillo is a tourist spot for Mexicans from Guadalajara and Mexico City. It’s a beautiful Mexican Rivera town that is unspoiled by hoards of tourists. The beaches are virtually deserted during the week and are populated by Mexican tourists and their families on the weekends. Beach vendors, a constant irritation at most resort towns, are virtually non-existant here. The people are very friendly and open to trying to understand your poor attempts at Spanish and bizarre hand signs.

The drug war? The state of Colima has the lowest rate of crime in all of Mexico. In general we feel safer here than on trips to L.A., Chicago, New York, and even Seattle.

The capitol of Colima is a short 40 miles away via a modern and well maintained toll road. While heading there you will find groves of palm, coconut, and mango trees on your left and the Pacific ocean on your right. Once there you will find a modern colonial style city that is the site of many educational institutions. Travel 20 miles more and you will be at the foot of the active volcano you have seen spouting steam the last 60 miles. 

Back in Manzanillo you can swim, snorkel, fish (some of the best sports fishing in the world), golf at one of the world’s top courses, tour the Malecon, eat in a 5 star restaurant, or visit the iguana refuge or turtle sanctuary. Or you can sit on your balcony and watch the cargo and cruise ships come into port.

Our neighborhood, formally the Zona Hoteleria, is now the up and coming trendy neighbourhood of Manzanillo. Within a short walk, you can enjoy a quaint neighourhood, traditional Mexican fare and upscale dining, as well as a local bakery, butcher and the fresh cooked chicken stand for an easy at home meal. Busses and taxis are always available. If you prefer driving there is easy and secure parking available right outside your door.

 The downtown area, which is visible from our palapa, is a short three miles away. There you will find the community gathered at the Malecon with their families, for entertainment, crafts, water shows, eating, skateboarding, and people watching.

Manzanillo is such a great place! Your enjoyment, relaxation, and fun are guaranteed. Come to enjoy - Mi casa es su casa!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We first started our travels to Mexico on a honeymoon cruise. We continued to return, loving the friendly people, the beautiful sites, the climate that gave us relief from the rainy, damp cold of Portland, Oregon, where we live the rest of the year. Coming to Manzanillo was a fluke! We had two free roundtrip air tickets on Alaska from volunteering to be bumped, and we looked at a map and said 'there'. Once here, we explored the town and fell in love. Finding our condo was also a fluke, or perhaps fated. A real estate agent took us on a tour of properties, and the last one she showed us was a lovely, beachfront condo with a very special rooftop terrace. Throwing caution to the wind, we jumped on it and have never looked back! We come three to four times a year, and have only grown deeper in love with this special place we call our second home.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Azul, Manzanillo, Col., Mexico:
Manzanillo chose us! Whether it was a fluke, fated or the work of the gods, an opportunity to become part of this wonderful ocean community presented itself to us. Who were we to say no to paradise?

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Most of all, we love the tranquil atmosphere and the rest from hectic lives back home. Listening to the waves crashing against the beach, watching the ships sail on by, feeling the cool ocean breezes against our skin are just a few of the wonderful experiences we enjoy here. Our condo boasts a very special rooftop terrace overlooking the ocean. We enjoy resting, reading, napping, and most of all just staring out into the blue sky and amazing ocean view from this little slice of heaven.
