 I left Manzanillo last night and my stay at the Mismo Sol Hostel was better than what I could ask for.  I wasn’t incredibly impressed with the beaches in Manzanillo.  At this time of year the tide is so high that there is little actual beach to use.  Also, with a hurricane somewhere out in the Pacific the waves were pretty big which made the ocean nice to look at but not so great to swim in.  The Mismo Sol hostel was an entirely different story.  It was the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at and here are 5 reasons why.

1. A 40 oz of beer (not malt liquor) is $2.00. You can’t find a better price than that anywhere.
2. The night worker is also a piercing and tattoo artist who will bring his equipment if you need anything done.  We had one nose piercing while I was there.
3. 10 minute walk to the beach and a pool to swim around in at night.
4. A practicing chef will come over and make you crepes.
5. As Don, the owner, says, ‘We’re not all-inclusive, We’re all you can handle.’  Couldn’t agree more.

Here are some pictures of Colima and Manzanillo.
