|Anchored in front of the Las Hadas resort. It looks a lot like the|
French Riviera! Not quite what you expect to find in Mexico.

|The kids waiting for the bus to old town Manzanillo. Just above the Las Hadas|
|It was a crazy, bumpy, bus ride to Manzanillo. The kids were laughing most|
of the time as the bus lurched, clanked, and banged along the rough Mexican roads.
|A HUGE sailfish sculpture on the Malecon of Manzanillo.|
|Walking through old town Manzanillo. This is REAL mexico. Virtually nobody|
here speaks english. There were almost no gringos to be found anywhere.
|The large market in Manzanillo. The fresh fruits and veggies were amazing.|
|Shopping at the market. Kevin and Cindy are there, can you find them?|
|On the bow of a Mexican Navy ship. It was open for tours when we arrived. Free too!|
|Another shot from the Navy ship (about 200' long) that we got to explore.|
Manzanillo Bay has a long history dating back to the 1500's where it was key factor in the creation of the Manila trade route. Goods traveled thousands of miles, across two oceans. From Spain, ships transported people, goods, and money to Atlantic Mexico where it was transported across land to the Pacific. From Manzanillo items were then shipped to Manilla in the Philippines, and vice versa.
