One day Cruise ship stop tomorrow, nearby resort for the day

Hi All,

I have a one day stop in Manzanillo tomorrow and I am a crew member, can anyone tell me if there is a resort close by where I can pay to use for the day?

You might have some luck at Barcelo Karmina Palace, though it's a good distance away from the cruise ship docks - it'll be about a 180 or 200 peso cab ride, I think. When you get into town, you can phone them and ask if they've got day passes for sale that day - it all depends on occupancy. Alternatively, you could check at Tesoro, Gran Festival, or Las Hadas - all have day pass programs.

If none of those work out, take a taxi to Playa Miramar - ask them to take you to El Tablao - it's on a lovely stretch of beach with great waves for bodysurfing or boogieboarding, and they won't object if you take a table on the beach to stay at all day long, as long as you drink and eat there - the food and beer is really inexpensive, and the hospitality is wonderful. :)

Whoops, I neglected to mention that most of the resorts are all in the Hotel Zone, near the Karmina Palace, which will be about a 180 to 200 peso taxi ride each way, but Gran Festival is further down than that, right across the road from Playa Miramar, where I recommended that restaurant. That'll probably add another 50 or 60 pesos to your cab total, each way.

Barcelo Karmina Palace day pass is $650MXN and it's the best all inclusive hotel in Manzanillo by far.
