Visitors can get away from the hustle and bustle of city life when traveling to Playa Manzanillo, a secluded beach in the Pacific Province of Puntarenas.
Playa Manzanillo is only a 15 minute drive from Santa Teresa, one of the most active destinations on the Nicoya Peninsula, but its tranquil atmosphere and lack of development make it feel as if it were on a different planet. To get to Playa Mazanillo, tourists can either drive along Highway 160 or take a ferry from Puntarenas to either Paquera or Naranjo Beach, two destinations just a short distance away from Manzanillo. Additionally, travelers can also reach the beach by taking a flight from San Jose or Liberia to the nearby town of Samara.
The main draw at Manzanillo is the seclude beach itself. The serene stretch of sand has been largely ignored by major developers, so visitors to the destination can enjoy the sound of the waves and the swaying of the palm trees in peace. Manzanillo is an ideal destination for families to go swimming, as a large rock jetty just off the coast prevents any large waves from making it to the shore. Swimming is best at high tide, as the rocky underwater landscape has the potential to make waders uncomfortable when the tide is low. Although these stones may make swimming difficult at times, they provide an excellent home for coral and other marine fauna. Travelers interested in seeing these reef-dwelling creatures will love snorkeling in the lagoon between the beach and the jetty.
Mazanillo is also an ideal starting point for tourists interested in walking along the coast. Playa Coyote is a popular destination for these walkers, and those who take the four-hour hike to this isolated attraction enjoy experiencing Costa Rica's gorgeous Pacific coast in its untouched, natural state. One event that draws many people to Manzanillo is the annual sand castle contest, which takes place every March. Teams spend the afternoon making sand art, and when the tide washes their creations away, everyone celebrates with beer and music long after the sun goes down.
When visitors to Playa Manzanillo are tired of swimming, snorkeling and exploring the beach, they can head to the nearby town of the same name. The small hamlet of Manzanillo offers travelers a glimpse into authentic small-town life in Costa Rica, allowing them to grab a drink alongside native Ticos in one of its few restaurants and cantinas.

We live in the USA near the Houston Texas area. Several years ago my girl friend/best friend and I decided to travel to Costa Rica looking for a place to retire. Our good friend Trey who also built our houses ask us to travel the country to see if we could find a better place then Playa Manzanillo.
So we did, and after two weeks of travel from one end of Costa Rica to the other we found ourselves back in Manzaillo loving every inch of it. We travel alot and know what every person wants when staying away from home so we have designed and put in place what you expect from a home away from home.
After our houses were completed in July of 2012, my best friend and I tied the knot and was married here in Manzanillo on this beautiful beach.
We have fell in love with this area, not only the area but being able to walk down to the beach and meet the fishermen who had been out in the ocean all night fishing then allowing us to purchase a 30 lb. Sea Bass fresh off the boat for a few dollars is just the best thing ever.
We chose this property solely due to the sounds of the ocean and the residence monkeys who you hear most mornings. Our house designs allow you to see the Pacific Ocean from every room/bed in the house, the monkeys are just outside the window swinging from tree limb to tree limb. Every once in a while you will hear and see a heard of cows walking up the street right in front of the house. This property just keeps giving memories to us each time we visit as it will to you once you decide to stay with us.
After being down in the surf village of Santa Teresa visiting with people from all over the world its always nice to be able to return to piece and quite of the sound of the jungle and ocean in the evening. The local town of Santa Teresa caters to the world of travelers, so you will find most things you enjoy to cook and eat here.
