The next few blogs will highlight wildlife seen on La Punta and Palace by the Sea – Whales, Birds and more.
2 brief whale encounters are presented in this short video.
The first while swimming at La Punta private beach -
While swimming at the beach I was joined by 2 whales on the far side of the bay.
The second while having breakfast on the pool deck – 2 (possibly more) whales swam by.
Whales are a bit difficult to photograph if they happen to catch one by surprise, but you can see them well enough here.
Everywhere one looks is breath-taking beauty and peace
One comment we regularly hear from guests – The Palace is even more beautiful than it’s pictures. Part of that is the feeling of actually standing on the pool deck and seeing nothing in front of you but ocean and the 2 bays (Manazanillo and Santiago). The gentle yet powerful sound of the surf, the feeling of the sun, fresh air, captivating and evolving light on the sea. Birds (occasional whales) and more.
Through photos, stories and movies, our blog offers views into some additional highlights of Palace by the Sea, La Punta and the surrounding areas. Adding a new way to view the Palace on screen, here are a few recent Panoramas. Enjoy.

Interview with Joaquin Torres, the preeminent architect of Palace by the Sea and La Punta/Santiago Peninsula.
(portrait photos by Dale Fazendin).
Joaquin Torres Zapiain, as an architect fully identified with the peninsula, shows us one of his beautiful masterpieces – Palace by the Sea, and shares his impressions with us.
“When an architect is asked to talk about his work, many experiences come to mind. Working here in Manzanillo as an architect and builder has given me great satisfaction that fills me with pride. The surrealistic surroundings where I have worked these past years – the Peninsula of Santiago – is one of the most beautiful places in Mexico.
This for me, is a constant fountain of motivation for the development of my profession and I feel truly fortunate to be here.
Every project is a catharsis; one empties into it all the emotions, deepest feelings and an immeasurable passion.
I don’t think I am tied to any specific and established style and yet I have great respect for the great architects and their work.
I believe my help resides in creating a space where the user finds himself and tunes into nature and his own essence. This is a fundamental part of my task as an architect.
There are only a few available weeks left this season, please contact us to check on availability and specials.
