Las Hadas Anchorage

28 February 2009 | Manzanillo
John Warren
We're anchored just off the beach at the Las Hadas Hotel in Manzanillo. All the hotels, homes and condos are painted almost appears that we would be in Greece. The palms trees are swaying in the breeze and the boganvillas are in a full bloom of red. The whole beach is gorgeous and contrasting in white, green and red from the foliage.

We had dinner last night with a friend from the Bay Area that has a villa here. What a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean from his home. In addition to visiting with Mark and Kathleen Barger, we've met more boaters here in the anchorage. We just got back from a dinner on shore with two other boaters that we will start buddy boating with up to Bandaras Bay.

Manzanillo is a rather large city and unfortunately has lots of pollution...mostly from their power plant across the bay...we assume its being powered by coal because there is constant pollution billowing from the power plant smoke stacks. But...the beaches are beautiful and life appears to be good here. Manzanillo also has one of the major ports for the entire country of Mexico...lots of cargo ships coming in and out of the bay.

So...we'll spend one more day here (Sunday) and then head all the way out of the bay (about five miles or so) into a little anchorage called Ensenada Carrizal. Many other boaters say that it's one of the most beautiful anchorages on this coast line with some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving.

After we depart Ensenada Carrizal, we will definitely be heading north again, but we plan on going least that's the plan!

This year has been so much fun because we've met so many nice people, the weather has been great and we're just more comfortable with the cruising life. We just can't say enough nice things about Mexico and the people here.

Don't know when we'll have internet after we leave here so we probably won't update the blog again until we arrive Bandaras Bay.

Everyone take care...we miss you all.....

About: We discovered sailing early in our marriage and have loved being on the water ever since. We started sailing on San Francisco Bay on a Catalina 27 and then upgraded to a Catalina 36. We then realized that we wanted to eventually go cruising and bought the boat that we have now...a Passport 47.
Sharon and I have cruised up and down the California coast many times and sailed in the 2000 Baja Ha Ha. The four Amigos took Warren Peace down the coast on the 2002 Baja Ha Ha. The boat's home base has been San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico for the past several years. Moving Warren Peace to the [...]
