My Spouse and I first discovered Manzanillo in 1997 and instantly fell in love with the city and the people. We returned every year increasing the length of our stay until Manzanillo felt more like home than Victoria, B.C. Canada. With each vacation new friends both Mexican and North Americans became a part of our family here and in July of 2004 we bought a home in Santiago in anticipation of our retirements. We moved here permanently on June 5, 2005 and we are now Residente Permanante of our adopted country.
