TravelPod Member ReviewsCabinas Manolo Drake Bay
When I decided to go to Osa I imagined an isolated bug ridden sweaty experience. Cabinas Manolo is amazing! I skyped with my credit card company from their place (in the jungle,) they have a very nice restaurant with great "naturales," a warm and knowledgeable staff, and clean clean rooms. I was very impressed.

Captain Pinto “remarried” this lovely couple and after their vows we toasted with excellent champagne.

We were sad ...
... had told us to book in advance- and we did-, may not happen, and even less likely on the days we requested?? That we'd nee to report to him each day if we didn't want to dine at the finca?? And a bunch of other stuff. It was too much. We just knew it was not a good fit and didn't get a good vibe. So we had to make the *************.
20 minutes later, we were back in a taxi with our luggage, headed to Cabinas Murillo, ...
We have been without the laptop and decent wifi bandwidth for a few days now as we were in the Corcovado National Park so this is a major update blurb-wise. Currently we are now luxing it up at La Luna Lodge in Carate before coming back down to earth for the final week in Costa Rica in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca on the Caribbean coast.
One of the big plans of our trip to Costa Rica was a 20km hike into the Sirena Ranger Station in the middle of the Corcovado ...
... kind of works. Stroll into 'town' for a nose around, this is really remote. The book does say only intrepid travellers get this far and that seems about right. There are a few restaurants and a supermarket but not much else, plus the supermarket is basic to say the least. We have a beer and pick up a few essential supplies before a lazy afternoon sat in the garden where you can see, Macaws (they always seem to fly in pairs), toucans, monkeys, sloths, etc, etc. Tea was a stroll ...
