An emergency number in La Manzanilla is: 044 315 1124048.
There is a Centro de Salud in La Manzanilla for small ailments or simple situations, scorpion bites, simple wounds. In Cihuatlan (about 20 kms) there is a smaller hospital. The larger, well equipped hospital is in Manzanillo (65 kms). It is the best if you have a serious emergency. But, there are a number of doctors and pharmacies in La Manzanilla and the surrounding communities: Barra de Navidad, Melaque, Cihuatlan. Better yet, don't get sick, you won't need a hospital. Enjoy your Mexico trip.
By the way, unless you're paranoid. don't take extra insurance. The cost in a hospital is nothing compared to the US or Canada. My three-day stay in the Manzanillo hospital, including attendance by five doctors, X-Rays, drugs etc, was 270 canadian dollars. Bon voyage.
