At La Posada you are someone special to us, and not merely a room number. As you enter through the brick archways onto a stone courtyard surrounded by lush, tropical foliage, multi-colored bougainvillea and swaying coconut palms, you will be greeted personally by the owners or by a bilingual member of our staff.

Modern rooms, charming, private terraces

Eat, read, paint or write under a shady palapaQuiet, peaceful nightsGuests return here year after year to enjoy total informality. They can relax under the thatched-roof palapa by the pool, enjoy a cool drink there along with a hamburger, a fish sandwich or a pork barbecue, or stroll on La Posada's pristine and unspoiled beach that stretches for miles. La Posada has a great snack bar, but for variety, we'll provide you with an area map, and a current list of restaurants that we recommend.
Jump right in!Kick back and relaxLa Posada has a crystal-clear, fresh-water swimming pool with a walk-across bridge.  There's seating all around the shallow end, and in the deep end, there's an underwater ledge for standing around in water up to your shoulders, sunning and chatting.

Overlooking Manzanillo harbor at sunsetManzanillo nightsThe sunsets from the thatched-roof palapa on the patio are unequalled in all of Manzanillo. 

Guests gather here for drinks and conversation before heading out for dinner at one of several really great nearby restaurants.

Every room uniqueAll rooms are unique and offer a view of Manzanillo Bay, the harbor, and the Pacific Ocean. Rooms are simple, but charming, and feature Dutch doors, hand-made furnishings, antique chests and colorful Mexican rugs and blankets. There are rooms upstairs with balconies, and garden-level rooms with easy access to the pool and beach. Air conditioning is installed in many of the rooms.
Sunset & BeyondSoft lights, romantic nightsEvening is a most special time at La Posada. As the sun sets and the harbor lights begin to glow, you are treated to one of the most spectacular vistas in Manzanillo. The activity doesn't end when the sun sets. Almost every night the fishermen cast their nets and try their luck.
Just a few feet beneath the surfaceRegardless of the room you choose, you are just a few steps from the pool and the beach. There's a rock jetty ideal for snorkeling just a minute's walk down the beach south of the hotel. You will see a gorgeous array of exotic tropical fish and other exciting marine life in the calm and crystal-clear waters along the jetty--a natural aquarium at your doorstep. Snorkeling equipment & trips can be arranged by management.
The Great Room, for dining, reading or relaxingHacienda style, with a paperback library, tooThe heart of La Posada is the sala, or " great room." Hearty, American-style breakfasts are served here, cards, board games and puzzles are tucked away in an antique chest for your pleasure, and mixed drinks are available from the bar. Guests are spoiled by the staff, most of whom have been at the inn for more than 3 decades.
At your serviceIt's nice to be trustedWant a beer, water or a soda? Help yourself any time from the old wooden ice chest in the kitchen. Then drop your bottle cap in the ceramic pot that has the number of your room painted on it above for accounting later. 

For something stronger, like our special Margaritas, visit our full service bar, made from gleaming hardwood.

Cool mountain stream, fantastic viewRide on the beach at sunsetFor outdoor activities (other than relaxing on the beach or at poolside), we can arrange diving and snorkeling trips, deep sea fishing, kayaking, horseback riding and side trips to Colima, Comala, the Nogueras museum, the turtle sanctuary in Cuyutlan, the volcano, the El Salto waterfall and the recently restored ruins at La Campana. We can also arrange a fun City Tour, where you'll get a chance to shop, and see all the main attractions, such as the "mercado,"  in downtown Manzanillo and beyond.

Sometimes there's a fiesta at the inn--complete with carnitas, guacamole, Margaritas, and even a Mariachi band. There is a lot to do and see in unspoiled Manzanillo, and no better place to stay than here, at La Posada.
