I rented a car in Santiago and drove south to Cuyutlan, Boca de Pascuales and Tecoman.  Cuyutlan is a pretty tired little town, beaten up from the Pacific weather.  Very few people there in the off season. The turtle sanctuary south of town is interesting and always open to the public. If you can find a guide for the lagoons nearby, they are beautiful and mosquito ridden.  Bring lots of repellant.

                    Cuyutlan (a web site) is 45 min south of Manzanillo
