I've been planning to rent a house for a month with a few friends in Mal Pais, which I've been to before. I found a really great looking place in Manzanillo but I don't know anything about the town. The last time I was in Mal Pais there I spent the majority of my time on Playa Hermosa. It was by far my favorite beach of the bunch. This leads me to believe that perhaps Manzanillo is a good place to be.
What's the vibe there? How does it compare to Santa Teresa and Mal Pais? I'm looking for something less developed/busy than Mal Pais.
We're going to be mostly surfing / swimming during the day but from time to time I'm sure we'll want to go out to dinner / drinks. Is there stuff to do in Manzanillo for several late 20-somethings or will we need to drive down to Mal Pais? Relaxed stuff, not fancy. Don't like the resort vibe. How are the Sodas around there? Any other wisdom?
