This movie amongst many others filmed here, did put Manzanillo on the map and tourists discovered this once sleepy, Mexican port town which currently has evolved into a city with a major port.

Manzanillo is divided into two bays, Manzanillo Bay which goes from the port to the peninsula where Las Hadas is located and Santiago Bay which goes from the peninsula to Juluapan de Peninsula.

In the last five years, Manzanillo has grown into a modernized city but with an Old Mexican charm feel which makes this a unique destination.
