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.

... ouch! Grazed my knee and really hurt but opened can of beer to ease the pain. But typical as soon as we got comfy it started to rain - boo! Just as I was getting to know Harsha more. Went back to hostel and watched scary pranks for a while plus smelly cat and showed Harsha achmed but everyone tired and went to bed.

There were only the 3 of us in the creek and it must have triggered an echo of some childhood mischief because I felt as though I was being really naughty splashing up and down in my wellies.It was unbelievably hot and ...
... the best part is that it has 7 kilometres of easy to walk trails which provide shade most of the day. We spent between 6 and 8 hours each day pottering along them, only occasionally passing another walker. There is so much life, insects, iguanas, birds, Peccaries and Sloths. We were lucky enough to spot a Pygmy Kingfisher, no larger than a Sparrow, a snake which I thought was a green Iguana until I zoomed in with the camera, and a Night Jar, the Common Pauraque. We were sad ...
It was after the 20 minute orientation that we knew we had to look for another place. First, there were way too many rules and inconveniences. Being environmental and conserving water is good, but the owner telling us he'd be checking our water tanks to make sure we aren't taking too long of showers?? His van being broken and us having to take a taxi back and forth from the beach ($6 one way)?? The tours, ...
