Then and now. Las Hadas resort, Manzanillo Mexico.

I came across a few pics from back in 1980 aboard my dad's 42' Westsail, the Liahona when we were here at Las Hadas resort. We tried to take similar pictures to show you the similarities and differences that 35 years has had on this magical place.  Without further ado, enjoy the then and now!


2016 - the hill on the left filled up a little.



The following pictures are not of Las Hadas but were taken during the time we were anchored there.

That's our walk through the past.  Great memories then and now!  Live for today because yesterday is gone and all you have left are pics.  Ciao for now.

  1. Thanks for the [post. I fished off that beach before Las Hadas was built and built all of the Vida del Mar condominiums on the Pacific side of the peninsula up until about 1978

  2. Very cool! We are enjoying our time here. Today we pick up Marne's daughter for a visit and will meander north over the next few days.
