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!

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.
