Short, and noticeable kept clean, this is the first steps you take when arriving by cruise ship. The statues are a nice touch for photo opps, but not a feature or destination worthy.

The Malecon (boardwalk) is pretty and clean and uncrowded with great views of the lovely bay and the colossal blue sailfish, but it doesn't have nearly as much to do as Puerto Vallarta, unless you turn inland and walk across the street and around the old El Centro area of town where there are shops and restaurants. It's so untouristy that I had to search a bit for postcards. We enjoyed the area, but don't expect a long boardwalk with a lot of seaside cafes like you find in PV.

The huge marlin statue represents the city of Manzanillo and is a great photo op. There are lots of statues by Mexican artists along the walkway and it is worth seeing.

We hired a driver to show us the Manzanillo area and were glad we did it. He showed us many places that regular tours don't take tourists. Seeing the area this way really shows how the residents live. The Malecon area was very quiet while we walked through it. Walking along the market area was very hot and crowded but was still enjoyable. It is hard to imagine just how big the sailfish is until you try to take a picture of someone standing beside it! The thing is huge!
