Long time Puerto Las Hadas resident Harland Beach passed away recently in Moorhead, Minnesota from cancer. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.


Hurricane Manuel caused very little damage to Manzanillo. The airport was closed for a few days and there was some flooding in the Valle. Everyone was happy to be spared the damage that other areas had.

GREAT NEWS – Since about the 20th of September, residents of Manzanillo have been smoke free. Yes, the smokestacks have not been emitting smoke. All hope this continues.

In case you are interested, you can get Netflicks in Manzanillo now. It is quite wonderful for 8 dollars a month as there are tons of movies and tv series to choose from without advertising. What you need is either a smart tv, a connection for your tv to either your computer or your Ipad or equivalent and 50.00 dollars for the connection to the Ipad, 770.00 pesos and Candy

doesn’t know about other tablets…an apple tv 99.00 dollars in Canada and US 1400 pesos here so, if you are interested it is much cheaper to buy the connections in your home city.
