All that divides your room from the Pacific Ocean is a golden ribbon of sandy beach.

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