Pros and Cons of Living in Manzanillo

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Mar 20, 2023

Summary: The pros of living in Manzanillo, Mexico include its beautiful beaches, warm climate, and vibrant culture. Additionally, the cost of living is relatively low, making it an attractive option for those looking to stretch their budget. On the other hand, the city is prone to hurricanes and other natural disasters, and the infrastructure is not as developed as in other parts of Mexico. Additionally, the crime rate is higher than in other parts of the country, so it is important to take safety precautions when living in Manzanillo.

What are the pros and cons of living in Manzanillo?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Manzanillo responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Manzanillo enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and the friendly locals. They also appreciate the low cost of living and the abundance of outdoor activities, such as swimming, fishing, and snorkeling. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the lack of infrastructure and public transportation to be a challenge. Additionally, the language barrier can be a source of frustration for those who don't speak Spanish," remarked one expat in Manzanillo.

"The existence of the city is like a quiet and never extinguished lamp, watching the world change. From ancient to modern, we have experienced great changes, but the only constant is the charm and strength of the soul of those cities that used to be ancient capitals," explained one expat in Manzanillo.
