I'm agree with all the positive advices. It was my third time in Costa Rica but my first time on the Caribbean coast. I decided to stay at Manzanillo because it was the last village at "the end of the road". And it was perfect; this village near one of the most wild refuge of Costa Rica. Lot of animals, insects, birds... And of course the beautiful landscapes of the beaches all along the path.
Don't miss the first view from the new mirador; its so beautiful (the caribbean coast : wild and beautiful). Forget Tortugero (trap for tourists) and come in the real caribbean mood in the south; from Cahuita to Manzanillo.
My only regret was the snorkeling on the coral reef, not possible because the sea was too much rough (Atlantic !) . But I didn't have a rain in the day during all my stay (incredible for this rainy place).
A paradise to discover the wildlife; with Florentino of course, my personal guide during a trip of 6,5 hours in the refuge. One of the most difficult trek of all my life of traveler (because we walked in an incredible mud during easily five hours/ not usual according Florentino) but also one of the most interesting because Florentino is a real specialist of the local wildlife (he works with scientific in the park). Its incredible how he can see an animal, an insect, a snake... in all these vegetation and he is a real great human being. I don't tell you more, make your own experience of this place and go to Manzanillo !And go to the Maxi restaurant to find Florentino (if he isn't in Europe to visit his families...)
