Favorite thing: If you want to enjoy sun, sand and sea, Monterrico maybe has the finest beach in the country. A black sand beach (an important nesting ground) and a beautiful mangrove swamp with narrow canals and lagoons. A perfect place to enjoy the wildlife.
go to the Hotel "Café del Sol "
it's a beautiful place and the owners are charming. www.cafe-del-sol.com
Fondest memory: swimming in the ocean (but be careful!) and canoeing on the lagunas. you can rent canoes in the Hotel Café del Sol.
There is not much in Monte Rico, just the swamp and beaches. So it is perfect for relaxing and see some wonderfull nature.
And that is what most peopel come here to do, do watch the wildlife of the swamp, and later just relax in a hammock.
Fondest memory: If you lucky, you will see leatherbacks (we didn't get lucky)
