This was my fiancé and my first trip to Costa Rica and the staff and owners at Almonds and Corals ensured it will not be our last. The food was delicious and with a free breakfast and dinner included every night you are staying at Almonds and Corals, the price was right. The rooms were beautiful, with great views of the jungle and a Jacuzzi bath in-suite. The resort offers many different tours, (jungle walk, canopy zip line, snorkeling and kayaking) with very knowledgeable guides who bring you closer to the native wildlife (monkeys, sloths, and a wide variety of gorgeous birds, even Dolphins!) Our third night there, a leatherback turtle laid her eggs on the beach right by our resort. Very cool. Only half a mile south is the quaint and lovely town of Manzanillo, with it's calm, clear blue Caribbean waters, it is well worth the 15 minute walk down the beach. A 15 minute drive away is bustling, yet relaxed town of Puerto Viejo, with a wide variety of shops, spas, and restaurants that boast a wonderful assortment of hand-made jewelry, wood workings, and garments. The food in Puerto Viejo is to die for! Everyone at Almonds and Corals was so wonderful and friendly, they made us feel at home. Special thanks to the owner, Marco whose knowledge of the area was impressive and to Michael, whose kindness was unmatched (and boy, he can make a great drink!). We were at Almonds and Corals for 6 days, but honestly could have spent the rest of our lives there in pure bliss. We will be back!
