Manzanillo is located in Colima. Nestled in the Bay of Santiago (Bay of Hope), it boasts one of the best climates in the world, the lowest crime rate in all of Mexico, world-class fishing, whale watching, bird watching, world class golf, magnificent beaches and the opportunity to live or relax in a world class community.
Manzanillo was established as a port city in 1873. Last year, it passed Vera Cruz Mexico as the largest port, receiving over 1 million 20 feet of containers each year. Banana, coconut, coffee and salt plantations are also in the region. Manzanillo has a population of 130,000, but with the city scattered across two beautiful bays, it has the charm of a small town, making it a magical place to spend your vacation or retire in peace and quiet.
Manzanillo has all the necessary things. First-class hospitals, healthcare (a small fraction of US cost), affordable dentistry, Bi and Tri Lingual private schools, international airport, shopping centers (Wal Mart, Sorianas and others), churches, movie theaters, public transportation and more. high speed internet services, affordable living costs and much more. Americans and Canadians have been in the field for years. Easy living and cheap living (below 1000.00 per month) is an opportunity to call upon us who are suffering from the economic downturn in the US. We, former migrants, love the charm and traditions of the Mexican people. There, kindness and generosity will bring a smile to your face. Celebrations and traditions are common and it's a lot of fun to join.
The Manzanillo economy is a success story here, south of the border. With the recent growth in the port industry, the strong middle class and the surge in foreign tourism, the city has flourished over the past three years. Real estate is steadily increasing and the job market is strong. The future looks bright for Manzanillo.
See you in paradise,
