The downtown Manzanillo (about 20 min. drive from Las Hadas) is a great and safe place to check out. If you have younger kids the main plaza always has some kind of activity for them and their parents to participate.

Every time we go to Manzanillo, we go downtown Centro a couple of times. They have fixed up their waterfront and have a huge blue Marlin, quite a few statues, etc there. They have banos which is good. There is a good cruise ship down there. There is the Centro Historical and the Newer Centro. There are numerous stores of all kinds, numerous restaurants and bars. The buses run from anywhere in Manzanilla and Santiago to downtown every few minutes and costs 6 pesos each. The navy base is downtown also. the people are friendly and in a lot of stores you can get the price of goods down. No visit to Manzanillo should include a trip to Centro

Do yourself a favor and visit the market around 8:30 in the moring. The market is about 4 or 5 blocks away from the main square.
You can buy enough shrimp and dorado to feed 6 for less than 200 pesos. We picked up a 1/2 kilo of shrimp (about 2 large fist fulls) some scallops and nice chunk of dorado butterfled just right-------cut up a couple bulbs of garlic, fry all in butter.
Don't forget the fresh tortillas and hot sauce avaliable right across the street. Make your own salsa and add some fried up onions, zucinnis and cervaza with lime and you have a piece of heaven.
Skip sorianos and commericial and shop local with the locals. You'll find no fresher produce or fish/meat/chicken.
