Manzanillo, city (1990 pop. 67,697), Colima state, SW Mexico. One of Mexico's chief Pacific ports, Manzanillo has a fine harbor and modern rail and highway connections with Mexico City. It handles many imports and ships out minerals, fruit, and lumber. Excellent beaches, a tropical climate, and resources for hunting and fishing have made Manzanillo a popular resort.
