“A must do”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

We shopped several hours in el centro. Too many shops to choose from and overall good prices. The only drawback was limited parking spots (we drove rental car) and the big Pena Nieto vote buying semi carnival/fair that was taking place at the main plaza on June 2 & 3.

“Downtown Manzanillo - great place to visit”
Reviewed 12 May 2012

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.

“Better than average downtown in mexico”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

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
