Hi Travelers and #Pinmapple!🐬

"Mexico is a megadiverse country"🐝🐴🐟 the typical phrase with which we always begin to write an essay about this beautiful country, some think that this phrase is overrated and widely used.

But for some reason it will be👉: in terms of marine life we ​​cannot complain, since we can observe from small fish of many colors in the Caribbean region, to large mammals such as whales that have been located at the other end of the country in Baja California.

Colima is a very small state in Mexico, in fact, it ranks 28th out of 32 with respect to the country's surface. The city of Manzanillo is the most populous municipality in the state.

The word "Colima" comes from the Nahualt term "(the) place where the waters bend" and it was founded in 1523, where the Spanish colonization is also linked.

Definitely the most pleasant view of this place is where the sea, the sky and the mountains meet.

The photos taken here do not do justice to the beauty that is contemplated and how the sky reflects its blue color on the sea, the "cherry" of that cake are the mountains that can be seen in the distance, we were in a place where they could see fish such as needle fish and puffer fish, also known as "toads."

It has a very beautiful and peaceful boardwalk, where you can even see some cats fishing by the sea. One of the most beautiful things on the boardwalk is the statue of the sailfish.

I remember that when we came to Manzanillo we saw a large number of bus lines, investigating more in detail we found at least 18 bus lines! And that's not all, they were mostly luxury buses: buses with double decks and touch screens for each passenger, as well as large spaces between each passenger, luxury!

Pacific Sailfish⛵️


Its name is due to its very tall and relatively large dorsal fin that resembles the sail of a ship, both in appearance and in motion. This species is often confused with the Atlantic sailfish.

Sailfish (Istiophorus platypterus) is the icon and pride of Manzanillo, where it is considered the capital of sailfish, an imposing and very fast animal. Sailfish fishing is very common here.
