"tiny fishing village" Puerto Manzanillo by arasnosliw

Puerto Manzanillo Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 23 photos

Located about 16 kilometers south of Puerto Viejo, the only way to reach town is by the road via Puerto Viejo. The road ends here, leaving little traffic coming through town. If you want to go further south to Panama, you're going to have to backtrack to Puerto Viejo to access a larger road.

Manzanillo is tiny, peaceful, perfect. With a similar atmosphere to other surrounding towns, you can come here to escape tourists.

The reef just meters off the beach is one of the best on the Caribbean coast for snorkeling, so I brought along my equipment and left my valuables on the beach hoping nobody would steal them. Nobody did; I was lucky.

Go hike around the town; I don't think most visitors do. They only spend time on the beach. I stumbled across a gorgeous lookout point a ways from the main beach. Shh, I should keep it a secret.
