  • Very good experience with a great view, walking along a path that has a Rainforest on one side and on the other side the breathtaking view to the sea is a great experience. When you reach the viewpoint there is a better view and a superb landscape. The beaches that we see along the way are a full paradise, clear sands, crystal-clear waters and with good surf.

  • The viewpoint of Manzanillo is amazing, one must walk along a small path, but it is not heavy. You have the possibility to go down to the beach and although of strong currents, you can enjoy the view and the sea.
