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.

As she had just started laying her eggs we left her in peace to get on with it, and made our way back to camp. Definitely an evening I'll remember for a ...
... buy a ticket, find a guide and return it back to the rangers office in order to confirm the spot. Then we had to go back and negotiate the price with the guide…
And this is where it could have been an inconvenience – even though you couldn’t officially go in without a guide – the entry points were along a beach so it would have been pretty easy to sneak in for free (and trust me I would have tried). My friend had told me about a loggers trail where ...
... s Day card from my dear Barry. Did he have a loving card at his place you may ask? No he did not. He is the thoughtful one. I had never given it a thought prior to the trip and there were no cards available aboard. A lame excuse. Plus, all the Valentine’s cards we bought for our families are on the stair steps at home. I don’t think they will get them in time.
Our excursion today was ...
