Staying at Playa Manglares was an incredible experience, one of the most memorable and unique times of my life. First of all, the host/owner Olga, really sets the tone with her warmth and hospitality. She welcomed us with hugs and kisses, arranged delicious meals for us, as well as car rides to nearby Playa Blanca. By the end of our...

I have traveled extensively and something thing I know to be true is two things can make a place great - the host and the accommodations. Olga is the host, and she is the warmest and most welcoming I have ever encountered. She's a hugger, so be prepared to be loved! When you enter her little bit of paradise you...

We stayed in Playa Manglares for a couple of days and enjoyed every minute of it. Olga and her staff are the most welcoming people. We were pretty amazed by the plants and animals around.

I have been fortunate enough to have visited Playa Manglares many times. Everytime I leave this very special place, I take with me warm and peaceful memories of my time spent there, the people I shared the island with and of course, of Olguita, who makes "la magia" happen! I look forward to my next visit.

It is hard to do Playa Monglares justice solely with words. You realize how special this place is once you step out of the cab and get a warm embrace from your host Olga.
