Jeff, what are you trying to say? Did you see mangroves or not see mangroves? What is your point?

And my question - which Playa Matapalo are you referring to? There are several in the country. I know you posted in the Puntarenas forum - but could it be you were really at the one near the Riu in Guanacaste? The answer to where the nearest mangroves are would be very different...

Hey, I might been able to decipher the mistery message:

"There is no mangrove swamp wherever Jeff L was taken to. If we do not agree let us see for ourselves".

Yet, Jeff, we are still in the pitch black about the exact location you are reffering to. Please help us!

I think jeff must be talking about the mangrove system that was destroyed and covered up in the construction of RIU Hotel in Matapalo Guanacaste. Yes unfortunately it is no longer possible to visit this mangrove as its no longer there...

In case you are refering to Playa Matapalo in Puntarenas as per the forum thread. Playa Matapalo in Puntarenas is located between Quepos and Dominical. There ae no mangrove systems I know of, but there is one near Quepos "Damas" also hacienda Baru near Dominical as well as near Ojochal and Sierpe.
