A one of a kind beach walk. The tide forecast is that although the tide will be high during the time of our walk, due to this time of year, the high tide will not come all the way to the top of the shoreline, and even if that occurs, there is clear trail on higher grounds through the COCAL (Coconut Estate) that we can take throughout our journey. Oh yes folks.....we are talking about night walking in Manzanilla beach.For those wishing to wet their feet whilst walking along, you are absolutely free to do such.....just bring along a extra pair of shoes/slippers. 

We will be starting our beach walk after the Manzanilla Beach Resort and after a relaxing 2.5 mile walk along the sea shore, we can admire the beautiful full moon coming over the horizon into the darkened sky giving great light onto the entire beach......be a part of the experience. This walk should take the average walker for the very most 1 hour to complete pending things of interest along the shoreline. Now folks, one important thing to note here is that at this particular time of the year, under the full moon, crabs usually come out in their full from their nests and make their way to the sea to wash their eggs, so this should be a spectacle rest assured.

We conclude our walk onto a private estate that will be opened especially for us at a strategic point where the popular "NARIVA RIVER" meets the sea......a spectacular spot that is ideal for us to enjoy while our transport is there awaiting us. Persons wishing to take a nice warm river bath in the Nariva River will be free to enjoy such.
