Getting there & away
The most rewarding way to get to and from Manzanillo is to bike along the 13km road. It is paved (but it’s not the smoothest ride you will ever take) and not heavily trafficked. In Manzanillo, you can rent bikes at Cabinas Manzanillo (per day US$6).
Buses to Manzanillo depart from Puerto Viejo (US$1.50, 30 minutes) at 7:30am, 11:45am, 4:30pm and 7:30pm. They return from Manzanillo to Puerto Viejo at 5am, 8:15am, 12:45pm and 5:15pm, departing from the Sodita La Playa.
