Living on the ocean in La Manzanilla is it's own special kind of paradise.
Our three-mile stretch of sun-swept beach caressed by gentle waves along the Bay of Tenacatita is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, surf fishing, and sunbathing. Some people prefer simply to sit back and enjoy the scenery from one of the many colorful palapa restaurants dotting the beach. The view of the bay and sunsets from the comfort of one’s ocean-view home is often photographed and always spectacular. Residents frequently are treated to the sight of dolphins or whales frolicking in our bay, as well as diving exhibitions by pelicans and other sea birds in search of fish. Other recreational pursuits include horseback riding, bird watching, hiking, cycling, and leisurely strolling through our picturesque village, or relaxing and people watching from our lovely jardin (plaza).
