Hit up the small market and buy yourself a T-shirt. Get ready to bargain for a deal! They have a couple restaurants there which is great for a bite. Bring some towels and enjoy the waves!

Long crowded local beach used by the all-inclusive resorts just across the road. All beaches in Mexico are public. so weekends is it really crowded with the Mexican families enjoying the hot sand and sunshine.

We like this beach because it offers nice hard packed sand for walking, safe for swimming- easy to get in and out of the nice warm water. The vendors offer most everything you can imagine from jewellery, beach wear, baskets, fruit, candy, to horseback rides....More

This is a great place to bring the family for an easy walk and swimming in the ocean. Lots of places to rent chairs or grab a bite to eat.

It was a decent beach. Over crowded and bit dirty ... May be because it was a long holiday weekend..

From the port you can hop on the #1 bus for 7 pesos. The bus ride is only about 15 minutes.

Hello. (1) What is the cheapest way to get from the cruise ship dock in Manzanillo to Playa Miramar? And also, (2) From cruise dock to Las Hadas? And my geography is poor, (3) So is Las Hadas perhaps somewhere right on Playa Miramar anyway? And please update me (4) Is the Las Hadas of 2017 worth the trip? It looked good in the movie 10, but is it today? Thank you.
