La Manzanilla – Movie – WOW Moment!


A few times we jumped in the dinghy in Tenacatita and drove over to La Manzanilla. It took about 15-20min and it was important to go in the morning, as the wind usually picked up in the afternoon. We also watched, that the shore break wasn’t too big, so the landing with our dinghy wasn’t a problem and we got lucky every time. I have very fond memories of La Manzanilla, especially from this experience, when we visited the crazy Crocodile Sanctuary! You gotta watch this!


Arriving in the calm morning, passing the fisherman and jumping fish here and there.

Watch the movie before looking at the pics! 🙂


Looks like this could also be a potential anchorage, but figuring it must be rolly, since it is not as protected as the Tenacatita anchorage. But the little town is cute!

Love this cutie!


Arriving at the Crocodile Sanctuary, 60 pesos for the show at the entrance, after that, we were alone… with the wildlife.


This hanging bridge was super scetchy. You gotta watch the movie! Some planks were questionable…


with this underneath, the was a bit frightening.

We saw a crocodile aim slowly for this bird, but this time, he did not catch him.


A damaged paths which made us wonder.


We passed a huge hornet net, but nobody seemed to live there.


Cute baby crocodiles in the sanctuary to look at.

Those guys seem to get along just fine!


This guy is approx 46 years old. He had a good sleep.


Funny how they lay there with there mouth open, are there waiting that food comes around this way? No, of course not. Just there way to deal with the heat.


At the exit, we were in for a surprise. This guy, in the middle of the path!


They totally got us. We serious started to throw water bottles at him, just to make sure.


Matsi wasn’t that sure just yet…


Only in Mexico! LOVED IT!

On a second visit to Manzanilla to get some ice and groceries, we trolled a fishing line on our way back and I caught this guy
